How are organic candles different from conventional candles?
According to Sinead O’Connor from Amie Organics, most common candles are made using paraffin wax, a by-product of petroleum. Many people aren’t aware of the health hazards posed from burning paraffin candles in their home. Paraffin releases 11 toxins when burned, 2 of which are carcinogenic. It has been documented to be as dangerous as second hand tobacco smoke or diesel fumes!
