Beeswax is a gift from nature used since the times of the ancient Egyptians.
This gift of nature was used for skin care, also for embalming of their dead in the process of mummification.
It was used in the production of perfume, pastors used it to create voodoo dolls (poking enemies at a distance has been known to the Egyptians), they also made beeswax candles.
Technology by which these candles have been produced has not changed a lot in the last three millennia. Even today the beeswax candles are a 100% natural product.
But today with all the technology we have candles are not used to shine in dark hallways.
The benefits of beeswax candles to humans are completely different these days.
1. Beeswax candles purify air
Flame of the beeswax candle emits a light of the same spectra as the sun. As the candle burns, negative ions are released which purify the air.
How exactly does it work?
Negative ions attract positively charged ions which are all those unwanted particlesof dust, mold and bad odour.
Merging of positive and negative ions they fall to the ground which makes the process of purifying the air we breathe.
Do you know what natural process creates the same effect?
Rain showers. You must be familiar with the beautiful scent of freshness that comes after a strong summer rain shower….created exactly by the shower containing negatively charged ions.
2. Beeswax candles are perfect for people suffering from allergies
Candles can really help people with allergies. How? Particles which really bother allergic people often enter their home in that way the sneezing and runny noses continue behind the closed door.
Particles that cause allergies are positive ions and as we’ve said beeswax candles release negative ions which ground dangerous allergens as well.
3. Beeswax candles have a beautiful fragrance
Beeswax doesn’t need additional aromas or essential oils to smell wonderfull. Beeswax has its own natural aroma of honey and flower nectar. This aroma fills the home with a light fragrance. You know how every home has a characteristic smell? Beeswax candles can make your home really smell like a meadow.
4. Beeswax candles do not harm the environment
Producing a regular candles involves artificial colouring, but also industrial very strong bleachers to achieve the white colour, and as by-products come very toxic dioxins.
To make the white wax firm a very cancerogenic matter acrolein has to added. When the candles burn during the combustion that very same toxic matter is released into the air.
Beeswax candles are made entirely from natural materials (beeswax) and burn purely without any smoke. Beeswax is a renewable material without any additives and supplements and is non-toxic. When the candle burns out you can compost it. Beeswax candles do not harm the environment as they burn nor when they are thrown away.
5. Beeswax candles last a long time
You will be surprised how a small beeswax candle can burn for a long time especially when compared to paraffin candles.
The Beeswax candles last longe, burn with more luminosity and stronger than paraffin candles. When they burn they do not release any soot or smoke. They do not release soot or smoke, they burn brighter, more and purer than any other kind of candle making them much more valuable.
