|STOP BURNING PARAFFIN!! Did you know that many candles on the market today are doing you, your family, and your pets more harm than good? Most candles on the market today are made from paraffin wax. Do you know where paraffin comes from? The process of making paraffin wax starts at the bottom of the oil barrel. After petroleum is processed into diesel, gasoline, motor oil, kerosene, and other fuels, the waste that has been rejected by the gasoline industry is then whitened with industrial strength bleach, a few other ingredients are added, and then you have the very wax that is burning inside your homes.
Have you ever noticed black soot around the edge of your candle glass, or on the walls or ceilings in your home? Well, that soot contains some of the same toxins found in diesel fuel- no wonder it leaves a residue on walls, ceilings, fabrics, and ventilation systems, and not to mention the fact that you and your family are breathing it into your lungs when you inhale! Paraffin wax emits 11 known toxins while burning, including toluene, benzene, and formaldehyde, which are known carcinogens. When we burn paraffin candles we are greatly contributing to indoor air pollution inside our own homes.
