Beeswax candles offer a honey scent, a golden flame, and the longest, cleanest burn of any candle.

beeswax candlesAnd there is much more benefit to using beeswax candles, compared to paraffin candles (which are made from polluted petroleum sludge). Beeswax candles clean the air as they burn, like a great, natural, air purifier.

A honey bee visits 33 million flowers before a pound of beeswax can be produced. It eats 10 pounds of honey. It secretes the beeswax from its abdomen, then using it to construct a honeycomb. Beekeepers recover the wax from the comb by heating it in water, where melted wax rises to the surface and can be removed.

To burn a beeswax candle is to enter into a world of wise benefits from the bee. Compare this to breathing toxic fumes from paraffin candles!

Cleaning the Air by Burning Beeswax Candles
 
Air contains billions of electrically charged particles called ions, which act upon our capacity to absorb and utilize oxygen. The ions in the air affect our mood, energy and health. Negative ions actually feel good. Too many positive ions make us feel bad, as they are loaded down with pollution and allergens drawn to them, that suspend in the air. Negative ions, on the other hand, remove the pollution and allergens from positive ions, allowing them to drop harmlessly to the ground.

Beeswax candle fuel is the only fuel that actually produces negative ions, which not only helps remove pollution from the air but increases the ratio of negative ions to positive ions, the ideal and necessary scenario for clean air.

Beeswax candles have been around for centuries, and were used long ago to aid people suffering from allergies and sinus problems.. Over the years, the transformation of candles has brought more harmful effects to a person’s health. A lit beeswax candle clears the air of airborne contaminants, leaving the air cleaner to breathe. The cleaner the air, the better you’ll be breathing, as you won’t inhale as many allergens and other contaminants. People suffering from asthma know all about breathing issues. In one study, asthma patients were asked to light a beeswax candle for three to four hours before they went to bed. Those who did, experienced better breathing abilities and other asthma symptoms improved. In one astonishing case, a woman burned a beeswax candle all day and said that her asthma went away completely over time.
