The Candle Solution
by Terri Bonin
Did you know burning scented candles is harmful to your health! According to a study posted by pubmed.gov, burning a scented candle for one hour in your home has the same effect on your health as smoking a cigarette!! It decreases lung function.
If all you change in your home is…
…diffusing and inhaling a couple of Young Living essential oils a day and get rid of your scented candles, air fresheners, scented waxes, reed diffusers, and perfumes, you will be significantly contributing to your health and well-being in the short run and long run.
Research and studies have shown that burning scented candles affects the health of your lungs. Paraffin is a petroleum waste product and has to be chemically bleached before making it into wax. Most candles are manufactured using paraffin wax which then releases benzene and toluene into the air. These two chemicals are both known as carcinogens! And, to really make matters worse, those same toxins are found in diesel fuel fumes. Yuck!
The Solution The solution is simple if you own a diffuser. When you diffuse essential oils, it delivers therapeutic aromatherapy throughout one or more rooms while clearing the air and creating a pleasantly fragrant environment. Essential oils are all-natural and there isn’t anything toxic about them. Diffusing is the perfect way to keep the air you breathe healthy and beneficial to your lungs.
