Here are some ways your paraffin candles are making you sick!

Paraffin – What is it?  We all know what petroleum is, right? Well, this wax is the waste product of the stuff that's deodorized. Yes, you are burning petroleum in your house for your family and kids to inhale on the regular. Here are some other lovely ingredients: acetone, trichlorofluoromethane, carbon disulfide, 2-butanone, trichloroethane, trichloroethene, carbon tetrachloride, tetrachloroethene, chlorobenzene, ethylbenzene, styrene, xylene, phenol, cresol, and cyclopentene. Some of the toxins are found in other products, such as paint, lacquer, and varnish removers!  So basically, Paraffin wax is a petroleum by-product that is created from the sludge waste when crude oil is refined into gasoline.

Pollution
- They are releasing toxic fumes. The same fumes found in a diesel engine, and they can be as dangerous as second-hand smoke. Not to mention the allergies potentially involved with the eugenol, cinnamic aldehyde, geraniol, or hydroxycitonellal that’s in it.
 

Metals in the Wicks - Unfortunately, the wax isn't the only part of the candle that contains hazardous materials. Little did you know that the wick contains metals like lead  on top of the cotton or string. This means more hazards and more worries for you and your kids.
