A Toxic Flame
We'll admit it. We have a candle obsession but we had to break up with many of our former flames after learning about the harm they can cause to your health. Here is what you need to know: Many candles are made with paraffin wax, which puts off highly toxic benzene and toluene - both are known carcinogens - when burned. These toxins from paraffin candles are the same as those found in diesel fuel fumes.
You don't have to give them up altogether but rather shop responsibly by buying clean, non-toxic candles with cotton wicks.
It's time to make the switch for healthy home free of toxins and chemicals.
