  QUESTION: Safety of candle use around children, 30 Jan 2006, Indiana USA

I would like to know if soy candle are safe and clean to use in your home if you use a candle warmer that is a container that the candle fits into and no burning of wick is required I have small children and am concerned about this as I have just recently started using candles the past 6 months and someone told me candles are unhealthy
thanks so much for your answer to a health issue
ANSWER: 01 Feb 2006

Dear Barbara
We received your query, but we only can tell you about risks from lead in candles and we have nothing to do with Soy Candles in general though we have attached information about Scented Candles.
If you would like to search the web you can look at the following link which might help you on the question:
