Most everyone knows that the main ingredient in today’s candle is paraffin wax. However, many people
don’t realize that this main ingredient may cause health problems and damage your home.
Paraffin wax is a petroleum by-product. It is made from the sludge of the bottom of a barrel of oil that is
bleached and texturized with a chemical called acrolein. When burned, paraffin wax emits carcinogens
and soot into the air of your home. These same toxins are also produced by burning diesel fuel. The soot is
electrically charged and bonds itself to the surfaces of your home, making it close to impossible to remove.
due to burning paraffin candles.
Not only is your health affected, but the health of your children and pets, too.
