If you are considering different types of candles, it is important to be aware of beeswax candle health benefits so you can choose candles that are best for your health.
Beeswax is an all-natural, non-toxic waxy substance secreted by bees after they consume honey. Bees use this wax to construct their honeycombs, and when cleaned and filtered, it can be used for beautiful and beneficial candles.
The bees are not harmed in the production of bee’s wax candle making. It takes 33 million visits to flowers for bees to create a single pound of wax.
Here are the benefits of bee’s wax candles:
Lower Toxicity- Because beeswax candles are all natural, they do not produce toxic byproducts and heavy soot when burned.
Neutralizing Pollutants- Beeswax candles product negative ions when burned, and those ions help to neutralize pollutants in the air. This helps eliminate dust, odors, and mold in the atmosphere, easing allergy and asthma symptoms and improving breathing.
Relaxation- The simple act of burning a candle has relaxing properties and can aid in stress relief and meditation
Safety- Because beeswax candles are all natural and produce no byproducts, they are naturally dripless when used properly and are thus safer to burn
Light- Beeswax candles have the brightest, purest light of any candles and are closest to natural light.
