Beeswax Candles

Benefits of Beeswax Candles
Beeswax candles purify the air
A beeswax candle emits a constant stream of negative ions whilst burning. These negative ions are attracted to suspended particles in the air (such as pollen, odours, dust, moulds and toxins) which are positively charged. The suspended particles thereby become heavier and gravity pulls them to the ground – instead of remaining in the air where they can be breathed in causing allergic reactions.

Beeswax candles are the only known fuel that emits these negative ions. Other sources of negative ions include rain forests and moving water such as rain storms, oceans, fast flowing rivers and waterfalls.

Burning a beeswax candle is the simplest and most cost effective way of purifying the air you breathe.

Beeswax candles burn up to 10 times longer than paraffin candles
Beeswax has a higher melting point than paraffin. Beeswax candles therefore burn slower and last longer, making them an economical alternative.

Beeswax candles do not emit smoke
Beeswax candles will only smoke if burnt in a draughty room (such as near an open window), or if the wick is too long. To prevent smoking trim the wick to between 5mm and 7mm prior to lighting the candle.

Beeswax candles do not contain artificial fragrances
To improve their appeal many paraffin candles contain artificial fragrances. When burnt these fragrances produce toxic black soot which settles on walls, window coverings, carpets and inside your lungs. Beeswax candles emit a pleasant light honey scent without the use of fragrances.

Beeswax candles emit a warm golden glow
The light emitted by a beeswax candle is in the same spectrum as the sun. It is a warm golden colour and a halo can often be seen around it. This is opposed to the disorganised light spectrum produced by paraffin candles (which is similar to old fashioned incandescent light bulbs), or the cool bluish flame emitted by soy candles.

Beeswax candles are great for the environment
Beeswax candles are recognised as carbon neutral by the WWF, as the CO2 emitted whilst burning has already been removed from the atmosphere by the bees in producing the wax. Beeswax is also a renewable resource.

Cotton wicks and 100% beeswax
Many paraffin candle manufacturers use metal-cored wicks. These can contribute to unhealthy indoor air quality. Our candles are made with Cotton wicks and 100% beeswax.
