Episode 14: Candles

Episode 14: Candles

I really love candles. I always have then burning when I'm hanging at home. But there's always been this kind of voice in the back of my head asking, "What exactly is burning here? Is it safe? What am I breathing? Why does it smell so good?". Then I started seeing others online post about some nasty stuff in candles and I had to look into it myself.

These are interesting times for information consumption. I tend to be skeptical of ALL claims these days. Companies who tell me that their products will do amazing things for me, and also blogs and such that report that everything is going to kill us. I'm so glad Molly and I started this podcast so we could actually figure out what's going on.

Maybe you've never thought about candles being toxic. Or maybe you've been seeing those same reports online. Either way, I think you're going to like this episode and learn something.
