What are the benefits of Beeswax candles?
- Beeswax is non-toxic
- Beeswax is a renewable fuel
- Beeswax candles burn stronger and brighter
- They smell great - With the light scent of orange and honey (not too strong)
- Beeswax has a high melting point so they burn 2-5 times longer
- Burning beeswax emits negative ions
- Our candles are hypo-allergenic (perfect for people with allergies and asthma)
Bees are Awesome!
It is truly amazing what a bee can accomplish in its lifetime, bees are very hard and loyal workers and it is estimated that bees fly over 150,000 miles to gather enough nectar to produce only six pounds of honey. Which is only about 1 pound of wax.
That is why beeswax has been rare and precious to mankind since ancient times. It's the only environmentally friendly and safe burning wax. Most candles are primarily made from paraffin, which is an oil based petroleum by-product that is known to contain many different toxic chemical compounds. Burning beeswax candles does not release toxins into the air. In fact they are known to purify and clean the air as it burns.
What are Negative ions?
Negative ions are oxygen atoms charged with an extra electron. They are created in nature by the effects of water, air, sunlight and the Earth's inherent radiation. Negatively charged ions are most prevalent in natural places and particularly around moving water or after a thunderstorm.
Negative ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we inhale in abundance in certain environments. Once they reach our bloodstream, negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy.
