Beeswax releases negative ions when it burns. Pollen, dust, dirt, pollutants, and any other junk in the air all carry a positive charge, and that is how they can be suspended in the air. The negative ions released from burning beeswax negate the positive charge of air contaminants, and the neutralized ions are sucked back into the burning candle or fall to the ground. Because beeswax candles clean the air from dust, dirt, odors and reduce other indoor pollutants, they can effectively reduce asthma, allergies, and hay fever.
beeswax is hypoallergenic and non-toxic. beeswax candles burns longer, drips less and smells amazing.
Beware of other waxes: Paraffin is the major ingredient in most conventional candles and is a sludge waste product from the petroleum industry. It releases carcinogenic chemicals when burned. The fumes are similar to that released from a diesel engine and can be as dangerous as second-hand cigarette smoke. This can contribute to serious respiratory issues like asthma.
Beeswax is great for your soul. First and foremost, beeswax candles have been held in reverence by churches and healers worldwide for thousands of years because they give you a sense of respect, peace and calmness. The golden flame of beeswax candles emits essentially the same light spectrum as the sun. In the process of burning they emit negative ions that are known to clean the air and invigorate the body (reportedly, stimulating the pituitary gland, thus increasing creativity, intuition, and dream activity). Beeswax candles have a healing energy that connects your heart and soul emotions.Finally, this 100% natural fuel created by bees is naturally scented by the honey and nectar of flowers packed into the honeycombs and gives off a subtle fragrance as it burns. In short, it’s a natural substance straight from Mother Nature.
