Why Burn Bees Wax?
Pure Beeswax is one of nature's most perfect products. Prized since ancient times, fragrant beeswax candles burn longer and cleaner than ordinary wax candles. In fact, pure beeswax has the highest melting point of any known wax. Its slow, smokeless flame gives off more light and heat than other waxes and are virtually dripless "if kept away from drafts and fans". Made by industrious honey bees from the nectar of flowers, beeswax has a sweet, natural fragrance all its own. Initially beeswax candles may seem to be more expensive than paraffin candles yet this is not so. Paraffin wax burns away much quicker than beeswax nullifying any price disparity.

Negative Ion Emitter
Beeswax is the only fuel to emit ( Negative Ions) when burning. Dust, hair, odors and other things floating in the air are doing so because the particles are positively charged. Allergens and toxins become positively charged through static electricity created by heating systems and friction caused by normal activity ( such as when you walk across the carpet). Pure beeswax candles help rid your home of toxins by emitting negatively charged ions as well as burning away positively charged particles that float toward the burning halo flame. This process cleans the air of positive ions such as dust, odors, toxins, pollen, mold, dust mites feces, and viruses. This has been proven to be beneficial for people who have allergies, and environmental sensitivities.
Beeswax and soy wax are pure and contain no petroleum byproducts, nor animal rendered fats that make the paraffin candles so inexpensive. The long term health risks and the smoke damage to your home far outweigh the less expensive nature of paraffin candles.
Paraffin waxes contain highly toxic and carcinogenic petroleum compounds and scented and colored candles pose more of a health risk, please see links below.
All of our candles are scent free (both bees wax and soy wax have a natural sweet scent), color and dye free, and have 100% cotton wicks. We hand craft beeswax and soy wax pillars, tapers, and tea lights.
