10 Best Clean Candles for Fall 2023
We had to include a pumpkin spice candle in our roundup, of course! Arctic Wicks is one of just a few brands with the USDA Certified Bio-based Product certification, giving customers peace of mind that their wax is as natural as they say it is. Now, the scent is extremely strong, so strong you will smell the pumpkin spice even when the candle isn’t lit.
This kind of scent is impossible to create all naturally, so the fragrance IS a blend of essential oils + fragrance oils. Personally, I love it because it smells like Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal to me.
If you’re in need of a strongly fragranced candle that fills up an entire space, and you have a craving for pumpkin spice and everything nice, then Arctic Wicks has got the candle for you (plus plenty of other fall-tastic scents). At $20 they’re a steal too!
Golden hay and apple picking is what Primally Pure’s Warm Citrus Spice candle conjures up. Clean skincare brand Primally Pure offers clean-burning beeswax and wildcrafted essential oil candles. Fresh citrus spice has hints of rich cacao, sweet honey, golden hay, and apple blossoms.
For a fall relaxation candle, try Primally Pure’s Sweet Floral Sage Candle with organic lavender, sage and Palo Santo.

Routine’s Moon Sisters candles have gotten a vessel upgrade since I last used them, but Moon Sister’s scent of rose / neroli / vetiver / lavender will create a calming ambience – a must when things start kicking into gear in fall and begin to feel a little more stressful. Routine uses only 100% pure, botanical oils for the scent and natural wax. The custom-made ceramic vessel is crafted by local artisan Fox + Flower.
