    Is burning Candles harmful to pregnant?

    I like to light up Candles but my wife have a baby now (4months). I would like to know is the burning of candles harmful to pregnant? I just have a walk in Horizon Plaza and saw a many cheap candles are available in Jervisbay BBQ World. I am afraid the candles will harmful to my wife so I haven't buy the candles (the Spring Sale of the shop)....

    How sweet! - I love candles - however, yes, many that contain essential oils may be harmful. Here is a site I quickly found:

    It seems that it is safe, as long as the wicks does not have lead.... Although I guess that, provided you don't burn candles is big quantities, and under the proper ventilation, it should also be fine.

    "Exposure to high levels of lead during pregnancy contributes to miscarriage, preterm delivery, low birthweight and developmental delays in the infant." (http://www.marchofdimes.com/aboutus/681_9146.asp)
