DayNa Decker Candles

Nothing spruces up a home’s decor like an elegant candle – it refreshes the room’s aroma and ambiance. While scent names may allude to nature’s sacred treasures, the actual burning of these products is the thing that harms nature most. The majority of candles on store shelves are paraffin candles, made of petroleum (a nonrenewable and ever-increasingly rare resource) and are significant contributors of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions. If greenhouse gases in the Earth’s atmosphere are responsible for global climate change, imagine their impact concentrated just within your home – the thought alone is suffocating! Also, candles aren’t necessarily bought on a need basis, but often in bulk or to add to a collection – yet they are almost always packaged for individual purchase. Single containers, plastic wrap, boxes, shipping…you can do the math. It adds up. Even candlewicks are dangerous, often coated in zinc, even lead, and rarely from a sustainable source of wood. So much for aromatherapy…

DON’T WORRY! We, of course, have curated an innovative brand whose goal is to provide life’s luxuries at little cost to life’s quality. DayNa Decker candles, crafted by the world-renowned design expert and professional perfumer for which they are named after, are paraffin-free, made with soy wax, contained in hand-blown glass, and made with an eco-friendly wood wick that has a soothing crackle to it when burned. Packaging has been optimized so it is as minimal and waste-free as can be, with a paperless ordering system and an intensive recycling program. Inhale, and safely take in the delicate, soothing notes personally selected by DayNa, and let your candle-burning habits resume. Available today, through Lux & Eco.
