  • 3Candle Caution

    The harmful nature of paraffin wax candles. This is by far the most
    Common type of candle and it's most likely the type you have at
    Home. Paraffin wax candles are made from petroleum byproducts and
    Emit toxins (Toleune, Benzene, Formaldehyde, and others) and soot
    (just as dangerous as second hand smoke) as they burn, which can be
    Very harmful to your health. Toleune and Benzene are known to be
    Carcinogenic, or cancer causing. I haven't seen too many arguments
    In favor of paraffin candles, other than the lower cost, so I steer
    Completely clear of them and so should you.

    Another type of candle is Beeswax. These candles contain no
    Carcinogens or toxins and burn much longer and cleaner than their
    Paraffin counterparts. The fact that they burn longer helps to
    Offset their higher cost. So, you're not really spending as much as
    You might think, since you will get much more use out of the same
    Sized Beeswax candle. One of the other great things about Beeswax
    Candles is that when you burn them they emit negative ions into the
    Air, which actually help to clean the air around you. How's that for
    A healthy candle?

    Another popular type of candle is Soy based. Like Beeswax candles,
    Soy burns longer than paraffin and does not contain any carcinogens
    Or toxins. Soy has the added benefit of being completely
    Biodegradable and water soluble.

    One thing you need to be aware of with both Beeswax and Soy candles
    Is that you must examine the label to make sure they are 100%
    Beeswax or Soy. A candle doesn't have to be 100% Beeswax or Soy for
    The manufacturer to call it that. With cheaper products, they will
    Often give you a candle that is 50% Soy and 50% paraffin, or some
    Variation of that.Please examine the label and make sure the candle you choose is 100%
