Benefits of Beeswax Candles!
First let’s get this out of the way, BEESWAX CANDLES ARE AWESOME!
Beeswax candles are the most durable and long-lasting candles available. They have the advantage of:
- Burning longer
- Beeswax candles have been proven to burn twice as long
- Being Non-Toxic
- A properly trimmed wick on a beeswax candle puts off less soot then its paraffin counterpart
- Clean Burning
- "The paraffin candles we tested released unwanted chemicals into the air...inhalation of these dangerous pollutants drifting in the air could contribute to the development of health risks." 3- Dr Ruhullah Massoudi
- A Renewable Resource
- Hypo-allergenic means relatively unlikely to cause an allergic reaction. Beeswax candles are much less likely to cause issues for people with sensitivities compared to paraffin candles. We've had so many customers tell us that using beeswax has given them the ability to burn candles again, after being so frustrated with the results of paraffin candles.
- Are Naturally Drip Resistant
- Not oil based
Some people may notice irritation from allergies when burning Paraffin candles. This is less likely for our beeswax candles which have only 2 ingredients a wick and wax. This makes them the perfect choice for those who want clean burning candles in their homes.
Beeswax candles MAY have other health benefits.
Beeswax candles are believed to produce negative ions as they burn. Unfortunately, we have done ample research on this topic and have at this point not been able to find any published scientific evidence to date that directly proves this. Although many people do experience an uplifting mood when burning beeswax candles and it’s been generally concluded that this feeling is caused by the negative ions.
““Generally speaking, negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain, resulting in higher alertness, decreasing drowsiness, and more mental energy,” says Pierce J Howard, PhD, director of research at the Center for Applied Cognitive Sciences.”
