(frequently asked questions)


Q: What is aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is a holistic therapy that uses essential oils to improve one’s health and psychological well-being. Essential oils are highly concentrated extracts from the aromatic parts of herbs, flowers, trees, bark and grasses. They have been in use for thousands of years. They are totally natural substances that have the ability to positively influence the mind and body.

Q. What's the difference between a fragrance oil and an essential oil?
Essential oils are naturally concentrated essences of plants, roots, flowers, leaves, fruits, etc. Fragrance oils are man-made fragrances, which alot of fragrances are combined with man-made and natural essences to create that perfect fragrance. Per our customers requests, Peaceful Scents uses both fragrance oils and essential oils. Where possible, we prefer essential oils, though for many scents (e.g. elderberry wine), the natural fragrance does not exist or is not available.

Q: Why are soy candles better than paraffin?

Soy candles produce less soot then paraffin. They are made from soy beans, not petroleum
by-products. Soy candles burn cleaner, with reduced carbon build up and virtually no pollutants! Soy bean candles are environmentally friendly, promotes the growth and care of the environment by using plants! Supports American Farmers! With our soy candles you can enjoy NO SOOT, OR SMOKE. Each candle is hand poured to ensure quality, and is made from natural soybean wax, which is processed from soybeans grown in the United States.

Q. Is there lead in your wicks?

No. We use a cotton and paper blend wick in all of our candles. No lead is ever used.

Q. How can I easily clean the jars to use as containers?

The wax is water soluble which means it will clean up with warm, soapy water. You may want to let it soak in warm to hot water to loosen the base of the wick in order to remove it.

Q. I see a some black film on the inside of the jar after burning…why?

Even though our vegetable wax is clean burning, there are a few reasons why you could get a smoky film on the inside of the jars. One reason could be that the wick was too long while burning. Try to remember to trim the wick to 1/4 inch before each lighting. Another reason could simply be smoke exiting from your lighter or match when lighting. Whatever the reason, soy bean is the cleanest burning candles you can buy.

Q. Are your products animal-tested?
No. We do not conduct animal testing. Our products are tested only on willing family members and friends.

Q. Do your products contain preservatives?
Our products contain small amounts of gentle preservatives in order to protect freshness. Anything made with water can grow molds and fungus. Peaceful Scents only uses preservatives in these type of products to protect our customers.

Q. Can I use your products if I have sensitive skin?
