Mom Sees Black Specks On Baby's Nostril While Feeding Her, Knowing What It Was Crushed Her World



Like an everyday routine, a mother went to feed her baby one day but what she  noticed from him shook her to the core.

Meghan Budden could not believe at first what she's seeing -- her baby had black spots around his nose. Upon closer look, Meghan discovered that the baby’s entire nostrils were black.

Even after cleaning out his nose, there were still black specks left. That’s when Meghan made a sudden realization about cause.

The previous day she had lit two large scented candles while she went about her daily chores. Her apartment soon started to smell of the candles, which was her goal. In total, Meghan burned the candles for 6 to 7 hours.

However, when she looked at the labeling on the candle's packaging there was a warning: do not burn more than three hours at one time. Due to the extended amount of time, the candle had produced the toxic substance, soot.

The black specks on the baby’s nose were soot. Although Meghan and her son are doing fine now, they were very fortunate.

A professor from the National Centre for Atmospheric Science at the University of York has proven that the common ingredient used to give candles their decadent scent actually transforms into the poisonous gas formaldehyde when burned.

Limonene is used in scented candles to provide a citrus-like aroma. But don’t be fooled. Lemon scented candles usually use this chemical and not natural ingredients.

When limonene molecules react to the ozone when released into the air one in two mutate into toxic formaldehyde.

Breathing the tiny particles can cause coronary heart disease, asthma, bronchitis, and many other respiratory illnesses.

Reaserch datas also shows that soot annually causes almost 300,000 asthma attacks and 2 million lost workdays due to respiratory problems.

Meghan'z experience is an important reminder that everyone should take the time to read the fine print on products.

See the video below to find out how to reduce the odds your candles will produce soot.
