Now men really do have an excuse for not being romantic - candlelit dinners can kill. Research has revealed that burning candles made of paraffin wax, the most common kind, was a dangerous indoor pollutant. Scientists have found that candles give off emissions similar to cancer-causing carcinogens.
According to the National Directorate of Forests, Argentina is experiencing the most intense deforestation in its history due to the replacement of forests with soy plantations*: “Over the past decade, as the output of soy rose steadily, the province [of Córdoba] lost an average of three percent of its native forests annually. Of the 10 million hectares of forests found in Córdoba a century ago, only 12 percent are left”.

Economics: 61 cents per hour of natural honey aroma-ed, air ionising, ambient, small Australian manufacturer and beekeeper supporting candlelight... hand-rolled right here in Australia.
Note: this candle is designed for longer burning (ie generally over 3 hours). If you continually burn the candle for shorter periods, the candle will not burn all the way out to its wrap. Luckily it's a natural ioniser, so you can leaving it burning and it will be purifying the air you breathe whilst you enjoy it's natural honey aroma!
