If you’re a candle lover like me, then perhaps you’ll agree that tea lights are the most versatile candles out there. The possibilities are endless and you can get super creative when designing your personal space. But when we talk about tea light candles or candles more generally, we have to keep in mind the toxic and chemical ingredients that are bound to show up. Truth be told, I see no point in creating a space that looks nice but pollutes the air I breathe. Nor Do I want candles that are made in working conditions that don’t respect my fellow human beings. So the decision is easy for me: I always go for Aloha Bay tea light candles.
Why Conventional Tea Light Candles Are a No-No
Imagine this: a gentle flicker of a candle flame that fills your space with warmth and beauty. But what if I told you that most candles are also polluting your air with toxins and chemicals. Yes, the air you breathe. That ruins the image, doesn’t it? The truth is, so many of us try so hard to eat healthy food and stay active. But what’s the point if the air we breathe inside our very own homes is filled with toxins and chemicals?
The good news is that there are healthy, eco-friendly and natural alternatives out there. Options that will allow us to create those warm images of our homes that we want, without compromising our health and wellbeing. You can have your candle – but it’s got to be natural and eco-friendly.

Time to Get Creative with Eco-friendly Tea Light Candles
The best thing about tea light candles is that they’re extremely versatile. You can use them in so many different ways to bring any look or style to your home. Also, tea light candles are affordable and easy to use. One of my favourite ideas is to clean up old jars (a great way to reuse and recycle) to use them as candle holders. They keep the candle burning for a long time and provide such a beautiful and relaxing ambiance for your home. You can even decorate the jars!
The best thing about these Stonebriar Unscented Tea Light Candles is that they come in white, cream, red and green. So you can get creative… but also a great way to decorate your home during the holidays. Check out the range for yourself.
But tea light candles aren’t just for the cool winter days. So many people use them for garden parties in the summer as a way to add light but also to keep those bugs and flies away. The great thing is that because they’re small, you can fill up a space with many tea light candles to make the place look super special.
Simple and Natural Ways to Freshen up Your Space
Not only can tea light candles bring light and warmth to your home, but they can also help freshen up the air. One of the best ways to use tea light candles is for burning incense essential oils. Once you choose your favourite natural incense oil, all you have to do is make sure you have an incense burner. You then place a tea light candle on the base of the burner and fill the dish with a few drops of oil. This way you can enjoy the aesthetics of candles and the calming and natural scents of incense oils together.
