Burning candles in the same room as ants

So here’s an interesting question. I keep my ant farm in my room, but I like burning candles sometimes to freshen up the smell a bit. I then got to thinking about if the smell might be harmful to my ants. So my question is is it ok to burn a candle in the same place as my ants? If it helps, I usually use a cinnamon scented candle.

I don't think scented candles will affect ants at all. the feral ones in my house seem to manage just fine.
