Why beeswax?

  

The only candle that stays clean and purifies the air

Beeswax candles have a high temperature melting point, so the smoke and soot is very minimal. Typical soy and paraffin based candles do not actually deodorize anything, they only mask smells with some ingredients (stearic acid, petroleum, synthetic oils, etc.) that are dangerous to our health and trigger allergic reactions in some. Beeswax releases negative ions. Things like dirt, pollen, dust, pollutants, etc. that are in the air all carry a positive charge (that is how they are suspended in the air). The negative ions released from burning beeswax negate the positive charge of these contaminants, and the neutralized ions are sucked back into the burning candle or fall to the ground. This destroys odors and effectively reduces the symptoms of things like asthma and allergies by drawing pollutants out of the air. Sound familiar? Many water filters and air purifiers harness this effective negative ion technology. This makes beeswax candles a great choice for people with allergies, asthma, sinuses and sensitivities! Since beeswax contains a natural, powerful protective substance called propolis, which shields beeswax from ever going bad, these candles can be used as decor for years and then be put to light.

 

I source my beeswax directly from the hives of local beekeepers here in South Jersey.  Since I buy beeswax from a variety of different local beekeepers, there may be some variation in the color of the beeswax. Beeswax color varies depending on the type of pollen that the bees use, age of wax, climate, etc.  Colors will range from gold/yellow to even a darker shade of orange. Beeswax is naturally aromatic from the honey and floral nectar that’s found in the honeycomb. — some beeswax smelling more potent than others - this is, again, contingent on what the bees are pollenating. Some of the best batches of wax come from bees that have been pollinating berries, wildflowers, citrus, etc. I let nature decide the smell :) I hand-pour all of the candles myself! Since they are handmade, expect there to be some variation from candles shown in the pictures.
