Did you know that candle ingredients are not required to be listed?  Most of the population is unaware, but awareness is growing. Worse, labels are often worded to mislead consumers - what is presented as an aromatherapy candle is petroleum wax, synthetic scent, synthetic fixatives, with a pinch of plant essential oil added. Even if a candle is labeled as being made of beeswax, often there is paraffin as well. Wicks that have a metal, or zinc core, often contain small amounts of lead as well. Always look for very specific labeling by the manufacturer.”

- Paraffin candles contain up to 11 carcinogenic     compounds. These compounds have been      deemed "toxic air contaminants" by the 

  State of California. 

- Paraffin smoke/exhaust contains many    carcinogenic toxins and contributes to indoor   air pollution

- Documented evidence that candle soot      particles contain many of the same compounds   given off from burning diesel fuel. The soot    from these materials can contain carcinogens,   neurotoxins, and reproductive toxins.

- Companies can use a variety of harmful            chemicals and toxins labeled as        

    "fragrances" without any regulation.
