1.Are scented candles safe?
Consumers can be confident that a well-made and properly burned candle, whether scented or unscented, 
will burn cleanly and safely. Although there are no known health hazards associated with the use of 
scented candles, unfounded concerns about the safety of man-made fragrances vs. “natural” fragrance 
materials and essential oils continue to pepper the popular media and Internet. 
The fragrances approved for candle usage – whether synthesized or “natural” – do not release toxic chemicals.
2.Why are candles so popular?
Candles are perhaps one of the most enjoyable and affordable luxury items available to everyone. 
They are beautiful and magical, infusing the home with color and fragrance.They can create 
a special warmth and ambiance to bring a special sense of calm and well-being.
3.How many types of candles are there, and what are the typical ingredients?
A candle consists primarily of wax and a wick. Candles may also contain colorants, 
fragrances and minor additives. The basic candle types are tapers, votives, pillars, 
jar or container candles, tealights, gels, floating candles, 
outdoor candles, novelty candles, utility candles, and birthday candles.
4.Is paraffin wax toxic?
No. Paraffin wax – like all candle waxes – is non-toxic. In fact, paraffin is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use 
in food, cosmetics, and medical applications. Food-grade paraffin is commonly used for manufacturing candles.
