A scented candle can often be the perfect mood-setter for a relaxing or romantic evening at home.  Who doesn’t love to light a fragrance candle after a busy day and sit back and unwind?

Well, if you are burning a candle made from paraffin wax, studies say you are harming your health and polluting your indoor air.

A study by researchers at the University of Michigan reveals that candles made from paraffin wax give off emissions like toluene, benzene, and formaldehyde.  All of these are known carcinogens.

An article from ABC-15 Arizona, states:

 “While there have been no definitive studies determining the long term effect of candle exposure, Arizona allergist Dr. Stuart Agren says the chemicals emitted by certain candles, especially heavily-scented ones, are similar to the fumes released by automobile exhausts.”

So, if you don’t like the thought of breathing in CAR FUMES in your living room, look for candles made from beeswax, soy or coconut wax. Also make sure your candles are lead free and free of chemical fragrance (it will say ESSENTIAL OILS on the label).
