Lighting a candle is a symbolic, ritualized way of offering light in the darkness. The Candle symbolizes the inner light and the luminous wisdom that can guide each of us through the darkness of ignorance and confusion. The candles shining flame is an outer reminder of inner luminosity and clarity-the living spiritual flame burning within the temple of our heart and soul ~ Lama Surya Das
Paraffin is a greyish-black sludge by-product of the petroleum refining process. To make candles the paraffin is bleached, textured, coloured, and scented using carcinogenic chemicals. When burned, the carcinogens fill the room with toxins that coat the walls, furniture, and the inside of your lungs. Check out the internet for more information on the toxicity and carcinogenic effects of paraffin
"Breathing fumes from burning paraffin candles is essentially the same as breathing the exhaust fumes from a diesel engine" Bill Reno, Entomologist/Writer
CANDLE BURNING TIPS
Use COMMON SENSE when choosing a holder for your candle. Tea-Lights and Votives, for example, require holders that provide proper airflow. When using a glass container, limit your burn time to 4 hours at once. This will prevent breakage.
To clean most candle holders:
- Heat oven to 200F.
- Fold two paper towels in half and place on an aluminum pie plate.
- Place candle holders upside down onto paper towels in oven for seven minutes.
- Remove candle holder with and oven mitt and wipe clean using 2 or 3 fresh paper towels.
This cleaning method works well on any glass, metal or pottery holders. For wooden candle holders heat with hair dryer then use paper towels for wiping.
