This holiday season we want you to relax and delight in your beeswax candles. Feel safe in knowing that besides being lovely and decorative in your home they are benefiting you in ways you might not have realized. Be sure to breathe deeply and notice how clean and fresh the air is in your home after they have been burning for an hour or so. This is especially important at a time when doors or windows are kept shut most of the time to conserve heat. Best of all you are not breathing toxic fumes emitted by paraffin candles.
Beeswax is the most natural of candle waxes. Nothing is done to it except a simple filtering process to ready it to make candles. Most other ‘natural’ candle waxes need additives or hydrogenation before they can be made into functioning candles. They also have environmental consequences.
