What Makes Candles So Bad

Paraffin is the major ingredient in most conventional candles and is a sludge waste product from the petroleum industry. It releases carcinogenic chemicals when burned. The soot/fumes are similar to that released from a diesel engine and can be as dangerous as second-hand cigarette smoke. This can contribute to serious respiratory issues like asthma.

  • Scented candles may have lead or lead cores in the wick, which releases dangerous amounts of lead into your home through the candle soot. Candle wicks are supposed to be made from pure paper or cotton, but a University of Michigan study in the late 1999 found that 30% of candles in the USA still released lead into the air, in amounts higher than is considered safe by the EPA (and personally, I’m not sure that I would consider there to be a “safe” level). Legislation was passed in the USA to ban lead in wicks in 2003, but it is still present in some candles which make their way onto store shelves, particularly those that are imported (made in China or Taiwan, for example). For my fellow Canadians, there has not yet been a Canadian ban on lead in candle wicks.
  • Two particularly toxic chemicals, benzene and toluene, are found in the sooty residue from burning candles. Benzene is cancer-causing and toluene affects the central nervous system.
  • Artificial scents and colors may be irritants to some people and/or trigger allergic reactions.
  • Other toxic chemicals that may be present in the paraffin mixture and released through burning include: Acetone, Trichlorofluoromethane, Carbon Disulfide, 2-Butanone, Trichloroethane, Trichloroethene, Carbon Tetrachloride, Tetrachloroethene, Chlorobenzene, Ethylbenzene, Styrene, Xylene, Phenol, Cresol, Cyclopentene. Some of the toxins are found in other products such as paint, laquer and varnish removers– that’s potent and powerful stuff!

 WELL—- TO SAY I FEEL LIKE SHIT—— WOULD BE THE UNDER-STATEMENT OF THE WORLD— WHY DOES A SPORTING GOOD BUSINESS NEED TO SELL TOXIC SCENTED CANDLES??????????????????

OH– YES—— THAT IS THE FIRST PLACE SOMEONE WOULD THINK OF TO GO BUY STINKING TOXIC SCENTED CANDLES— A BIG SPORTING GOOD BUSINESS!!!!!!!! FOR CRYING IN THE BUCKET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
