Who doesn’t love some good fall scents making your home smell cozy?? Homes filled with Bath & Body Works candles, Yankee candles, fall Febreze scents, fall Glade scents have become the norm.
Unfortunately, these products are so bad for your health! Bath & Body Works candles and Yankee candles both contain paraffin wax which is a petroleum by-product. It emits carcinogens like benzene, toluene, and formaldehyde. These candles can cause headaches, nausea, and respiratory issues due to the synthetic fragrance added in.
Products like Febreze & Glade are fragrance in a bottle. Febreze and Glade do disclose their ingredients on their website and they are anything but non-toxic. Febreze contains paraffin wax, petroleum wax, PEG’s, fragrance, and more. Glade contains fragrance, butane, and propane! We are NOT meant to inhale these toxic chemicals.
Getting rid of toxic products like these can decrease the toxic load on our bodies which makes us feel physically better in so many ways!
Also, I know when people have guests over, they like to make their house smell nice! But one thing lots of people don’t take into consideration is if their guests might be sensitive to chemicals or if they have any other health issues like asthma.
For me, I react HORRIBLY to Febreze and Glade. After a few hours, I’m literally wheezing and it’s hard for me to breathe. My sinuses also start to swell which makes it even harder to breathe. I get relief as soon as I walk outside, but it’s miserable. Don’t make your guests sick by bombarding them with toxic chemicals.
Also, these toxic chemicals can also wreak havoc on our hormones! If you have a hormone imbalance, the products you use daily can have a negative effect on your hormones. It’s best to use toxin free products whenever possible!

So which scents do I recommend for fall? Keep reading for my list!
Fontana’s Pumpkin Pie Candle:
Fontana’s Pumpkin Pie candle is way too good! It smells just like Pumpkin Spice. It’s literally better than the artificially scented pumpkin candles because it’s not too sweet and it doesn’t make me nauseous! (Literally, artificial pumpkin candles always make me so nauseous.)
Fontana’s Cinnamon Orange Clove candle and room spray:
Cinnamon orange clove smells like fall spices or like those scented pinecones you’ll find at the grocery store. When I think of fall, I think of this scent…it’s SO GOOD!
Fontana’s Spiced Latte candle:
If you are a fan of pumpkin spice lattes, you will LOVE this Spiced Latte candle! Did you know pumpkin spice doesn’t actually have pumpkin in it?
This candle doesn’t smell like pumpkin, but it does smell like pumpkin spice! It’s such a cozy smell I find myself burning this candle often!
Fontana’s Allspice Ginger & Vanilla Candle:
I love how the vanilla brings out a sweeter smell. With the Allspice Ginger & Vanilla candle, you still get the fall spices with a hint of sweetness. This one has quickly become one of my favorite fall candles!
Fontana’s Pure Vanilla Candle:
If you’re not a fan of all the spices but you still want a cozy candle that’s not floral or fruity, Fontana’s Pure Vanilla candle is it! It smells just like vanilla bean ice cream. It’s not the strongest smell so if you like lighter smells, this candle is perfect!
