ABSTRACT
The article offers facts about candles. There are several types of waxes used in candles. The most common type is the paraffin wax, and it is also the least expensive. On the other, beeswax burns faster than paraffin. Other candles are made with either soy or palm waxes. Test the quality of a candle wick by gently tugging on the end of the wick to ensure that it is secure. A loose one may burn unevenly or not burn at all if it falls into a pool of melted wax. Wicks made with a lead or lead-alloy core were banned in 2003 because they give off unhealthy emissions.
