Candles. There’s nothing more appealing than the sweet scent of a burning candle. Retailers tend to believe that the sweet smell of candles more closely resembles the sweet smell of profits. After all, candles are big business, with sales of over $2 billion dollars this year alone. It’s nearly impossible to enter a department store, clothing store, drug store or the corner hardware store, without finding candles on display.

Aromatherapy candles do have touted relaxation benefits and mind/body healing.  Candles – scented candles in particular – give off soot as they burn. Soot is a natural by-product of burning petroleum products such as wax.
