    While the national candle association says they are fine:

    So should we be concerned or is there scare mongering going on here?

    That puts it in perspective when you put it like that

    got a mate who has them yabkee ones lit all the time... They smell nice when you first go in, but jesus man. Open some windows and get some fresh air in.

    I hate all scented things like that they numb the senses.

    I use an oil burner with high quality essential oils and love it.
    My mother gave me an expensive scented candle and I couldn't even stand having it in the room in the packaging it was so strong.
    I never buy them as essential oils are much nicer and cheaper.

    why worry about candles and fumes when there are worse ways to go. you could get knocked down by a bus or choke on something. ......... just saying

    You could but at the same time if i can prevent going early i want to!;)

    You can't really take any health issues seriously when they are reported by the Daily Mail. Everything from blinking to writing with a fountain pen is likely to kill you according to them.

    Only if you roll it up and smoke it

    Who`d have thought walking about in a confined space inhaling burnt chemicals from a candle and from plug in "air fresheners" would be bad for you ? X)

    I do like my scented candles but it is sensible to open windows.

    It's funny how scented candles all just smell like burning candles to me

    Not my thing at all, I like my windows open X)
