THREE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE YOU LIGHT A CANDLE

But if we tell you that paraffin is a by-product of oil and as such is extremely harmful to inhalation, we already get some of your attention, right? If we tell you that the burning (paraffin) candles release a lot of toluene into the air, which causes dizziness and vertigo, and benzene - a carcinogenic substance that is also in tobacco smoke, you will probably become a little worried? The vapors that are released are extremely toxic and eventually cause health problems such as allergies and...
