Oh Canvas Tip

Synthetic-scented candles are very dangerous. Inhaled chemicals can cause asthma and allergies, especially in infants’ growing lungs. Burn only beeswax, soy, or palm oil candles, which burn cleaner and longer than paraffin wax candles. Beeswax is naturally aromatic, nontoxic, and non-allergenic. Avoid scented candles.

Oh Canvas Tip
