Why Is The Use Of Aromatherapy Candles Dangerous?
Hello Alvinia! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The use of aromatherapy is indeed very beneficial, especially in reducing stress, anxiety, and similar disorders. Aromatherapy is available on the market in various forms. Apart from candles, aromatherapy is generally available in the form of oil for inclusion in a vaporizer (diffuser), as a mixture of body care products (such as soap, lotions, etc.), as well as massage oil. In addition to providing comfort and reducing stress, aromatherapy can improve mood, reduce pain, and improve blood circulation and the immune system. If you have trouble sleeping, aromatherapy can also help you sleep more easily. Aromatherapy will be smelled by the part of your nose, then proceed to the brain, especially in the limbic which functions to regulate feelings and mood.
Despite its many benefits, inhaling aromatherapy is not good in people with a history of asthma because it can trigger an attack. In people who have no previous breathing problems, the use of aromatherapy is relatively safe. In addition, keep in mind that aromatherapy candles are still burning products that cause smoke, so aromatherapy candles should not be used in tightly closed rooms (without ventilation) or in tight spaces. In addition, you need to make sure you don't fall asleep or leave the room when the aromatherapy candle is burning because it can trigger a fire. Do not light aromatherapy candles near flammable objects. Candles must be placed in a place that cannot be reached by children. Also avoid burning aromatherapy candles for more than 2 hours. Make sure the wax is always clean, including from the residual combustion of the wick. Some types of aromatherapy should be avoided in pregnant women. Pregnant women who want to use aromatherapy should consult with an obstetrician first. The use of aromatherapy candles that cause tumors or cancer cannot yet be proven scientifically. However, some "bad" aromatherapy candle entrepreneurs often claim that aromatherapy candles can treat cancer. This is also not true.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
