Benefits of Beeswax Candles

Bee Friends Farm Admin

Beeswax candles have been used for ages to light homes but in this modern age, they have some unique benefits we love at Bee Friends Farm!

1) Burn Longer 

Solid beeswax candles burn longer than regular paraffin or soy candles. For example, our small votive candles burn about 4 hours. Do not place near air vents as the gusts of air can burn them down quicker. 

2) Pull Toxins from the Air

As beeswax candles burn they pull toxins as they ionize the air. Negative ions bind with toxins which helps remove them from the air providing a cleaner environment for you and your family. 

3) Soot Free 

Beeswax candles burn cleanly and have no added fragrances or colorings. We only use pure beeswax and organic hemp wicks for our candles. This ensures you're not breathing in any chemicals or additives.  

4) Ambiance 

There's nothing quite like lighting some candles to set the tone of a calm and relaxed atmosphere. Self-care never felt so good! 

How do you know if your candle is really pure beeswax!? Overtime, real beeswax creates a little white "beeswax bloom" or sheen. It's totally natural, and a way to tell if the candle is real pure beeswax. The white bloom is caused by the oils in the candle coming to the surface. That white film doesn't harm the candle and in some cases it can give it a cool look. Oh, and if you want to make sure that your candle is real, shop with a real beekeeper! 

You can find our beeswax candles in a few different shapes here.
