Candles

Candles are great for helping people to relax and for helping people achieve ecstatic experiences (trances, etc).

I reckon it's because of all the carbon monoxide they produce.

 

Seriously, the yellow flame means there's incomplete combustion of carbon, producing carbon monoxide, which latches onto red blood cells, preventing them from carrying oxygen to the brain. Complete combustion gives a blue flame, producing carbon dioxide.
