Some Candles Better to Use than Others
Some Candles Better to Use than Others

Some candles are better for you, says the Accessibility Committeee of the Unitarian Universalist Society: East Manchester, CT. In a recent newsletter it offered these tips:

  • Choose beeswax or soy wax candles over paraffin, which is a petroleum waste product and produces smoke and soot. 
  • Choose candles with cotton or hemp wicks and without a lead core.
  • Colored and scented candles can add chemicals to the air.
