Why Beeswax?

Beeswax candles are the best type of candles to burn because they not only look and smell great while they burn, but also purify the air by releasing negative ions when burning. These negative ions attach to positive ions in the air such as dust and other pollutants and destroy them, creating a cleaner environment. Candles which are made with paraffin and soy wax, however, actually pollute the air around them. Beeswax candles also burn longer and brighter than other types of candles, are naturally dripless and can help people with breathing difficulties such as asthma and allergies breathe easier. Beeswax candles are created from a renewable fuel(beeswax), compared to paraffin candles which are made from a non-renewable fuel (petroleum). Buying beeswax candles helps support beekeepers and their bees which plays an essential role in the pollination of 80% of the worlds flowers and plants.
