5 Reasons to Buy Beeswax Candles
Beeswax candles are made from 100% pure natural wax that is created by honeybees. The beeswax is often handcrafted by artisans who produce the candles. There really is nothing that compares to the warm glow of a natural beeswax candle. In this article, we discuss five reasons why you should invest in beeswax candles. Read on to discover why they are your best choice!
Beeswax Is environmentally friendly
Unlike paraffin or soy wax candles, beeswax candles do not release harmful toxins into the air when burned. In fact, they actually purify the air as they burn!
Also, beeswax is a renewable resource since it comes from honeybees that make it themselves, which helps maintain the environment by not using any fossil fuels or chemicals in production.
Beeswax is non-toxic
Other types of candles have been shown to emit toxic chemicals such as carbon monoxide, soot, and formaldehyde when burned. Beeswax candles, on the other hand, do not release anything like this into the air.
It is also important to consider the type of wicking that is used in the candle. We recommend only purchasing candles with natural cotton or wood wicking. Other cheaper materials used for wicking can contain metals.
Beeswax candles can be used for up to 50 hours
Other types of candles typically last around 10-12 hours, beeswax candles, on the other hand, can burn for more than 5 times as long! As a rule of thumb, our beeswax taper candles will last for approximately one hour per inch burned.
Beeswax candles are naturally dripless
Beeswax candles naturally drip less than other types of waxes, making them easier to clean up after use. Keep in mind that the candles should not be burned near air drafts or open vents as this can adversely affect the burn.
Beeswax Smells Terrific
The scent of beeswax candles can be described as a sweet honey scent. The aroma has hints of the natural flowers the bees have visited to produce the wax. The result is a warm clean fresh air scent that will intrigue your guests.
Beeswax candles are a perfect choice if you want to enjoy the benefits of beeswax. They’re natural, environmentally friendly and non-toxic, can be used for up to 50 hours, don’t drip as much as other types of waxes which makes them easier to clean after use and give off a pleasant honey scent.
