Scented candles

I don't really go into this....the few that I got as gifts remain unused....even the ones that I bought years ago(when I thought I liked the idea of having them around) are somewhere in the house.....hehe..

Recently after the "kidnapped for breakfast" time (here), my friend and I went window shopping.... but then she said she wanted to buy some candles.

So whilst she was surveying, I did my usual hobby :-D

There were lots of different kind of candles and its holders..some caught my eyes..but I only managed to capture a few before my friend said she'd done choosing hers..hehe..


Are scented candles bad for you?

They can add a hint of romance to a meal or make taking a bath a real luxury.

But scented candles can be bad for your health, say scientists.

The smoke produced by many of them is laced with toxins linked to cancer, asthma and eczema.

The odd candle is unlikely to do any harm, but we should avoid using them day after day in bathrooms and other poorly ventilated rooms, say the researchers.

mmm...and I just bought one for exchanged of gift session during our recent reunion. Hope it doesn't harm my friend or her family...

[Note : Couldn't run today as it was raining when I left the office, so I cycled indoor instead for one hour, non-stop at a steady pace (i.e speed no 1..hehe..) ]
