ther - Candles
There is some debate about whether paraffin candles are toxic. At this stage it appears
that the safest thing is to purchase beeswax candles.
- Why Beeswax
They used to claim that beeswax candles are better than paraffin candles but I'm not sure if they
still do or not. As at 2018oct8 they said that
"We love hand-crafting 100% pure beeswax candles. Beeswax is a natural, renewable resource.
Beeswax candles emit a bright, healthful light within the same spectrum as the sun - plus
negative ions that clean the air and invigorate the body. Beeswax burns longer, drips less,
and smells wonderful, naturally. Intrigued? Shop beeswax candles to experience the
difference for yourself."
- On this website they used to claim that soy candles are better than paraffin candles
I haven't found these quotes on their website presently as at 2018oct8 however this is what they
used to say:
"Soy wax is non-toxic and does not produce the dangerous toxic soot that paraffin candles do." and
"Soy wax is water soluble and cleans up easily with water."
- Paraffin is non-toxic
"most fruits and vegetables have an edible coating of paraffin wax on them."
"Soy or Soya is considered one of the most important food allergens"
- No candle wax has ever been shown to be toxic or harmful to human health

I do not like to smell any scent if there are candles. Though I have liked some
aromatherapy incenses in the past eg for Meditation/ Relaxing eg bach flower remedies,
but I haven't used these for a while (since 1994). The main issue is that I don't want
a scent lingering in my place since I like clean air. Dabbing a bit on of a
roll-on meditation perfume is fine, since I can always wash it off. I put it on the
inside of my wrist and then wipe a bit onto my nose so i can smell it,
it helps me sleep, if i can not get to sleep.
