I love scented candles, however when they burn they leave a horrible black film/soot residue on my ceilings. Is it the kind of candles I am using? I just wonder if that black "soot" is attaching to my ceilings... is it also attaching to our lungs? Has anyone had the black soot "thing" happen when burning scented candles?
