As a regular customer you will know that Misters Candles uses quality wax made from Soy which is 100% Natural, Vegan Friendly and safe for use in our homes.

Some candles however are made from petroleum based wax (paraffin is a petroleum by-product.) “High quality” paraffin does not exist! This wax is sourced from the refining of crude oil into gasoline. The petroleum sludge that is then left over is then bleached and deodorized to be used as wax for candles and wax melts. In the refining of this petroleum, the process gives off the same soot as a diesel car engine.

This harmful kind of wax, when burned, releases:

  • Acetaldehyde (the same toxin Candida Yeast releases when dying off)
  • Formaldehyde (increased risk for allergies and asthma)
  • Toluene (a solvent that attacks the Central Nervous System)
  • Benzene (produced from Toluene and causes fatigue, sleepiness, headaches, and nausea and attention disorders)
  • Acrolein (an herbicide that can change genetic structures)

These are all dangerous toxins. When these are polluting our indoor air they are extremely hazardous to our health. Even the EPA says that if multiple candles are burned in a home the pollution exceeds the safe minimum for indoor air.
