Candles, Clean Burning and Urban Re-Leaf
Our Urban Re-Leaf candles are specially poured with you and our environment in mind. How? The answer is in our simple, pure formula: Coconut wax, phthalate free fragrance oil and pure cotton wick (or wicks!).
Urban Re-Leaf chooses to work primarily with coconut wax because it is a renewable, biodegradable, non-toxic and carbon neutral resource. Candles that are made of coconut wax tend to burn more cleanly and for a longer period of time than candles made entirely of soy or paraffin.
Even more, Urban Re-Leaf fragrances are phthalate free. Phthalates are chemicals that are often found in plastics and vinyl and have been listed as “reasonable anticipated to be a human carcinogen” by the National Toxicology Program. Because of its toxicity, we are opposed to any kind of chemical like this being a part of our final product.
Pure cotton wicks are a staple of Urban Re-Leaf candles. Burning cotton wicks as opposed to other types of wicks can reduce carcinogens in the environment, reduce soot, and decrease the amount of harmful substances released during the burning of a candle. Cotton wicks also improve the fragrance delivery and burns longer.

Self-Care Sunday is so much more than a trending hashtag on Instagram.
All too often, Sunday evenings are total downers – the bulk of the weekend has come and gone, and by the time the sun has set, we’re shrouded in the Sunday Blues.
