Each of our candles is hand made by us using 100 percent beeswax. Beeswax is truly the premium candle wax available with many advantages over alternative waxes. Beeswax is the brightest burning of the candle waxes, and it emits a wonderful fragrance reminiscent of honey.

Beeswax has a higher melting point than other waxes, including vegetable and soy waxes, which causes it to burn much longer. If the wick is trimmed properly to 1/4 inch and the candle is burned in the absence of a draft, beeswax candles tend to pool straight down and are essentially dripless.

They are the cleanest burning of all candles, hypo-allergenic, and they actually produce negative ions. Dirt, dust, pollen, and other pollutants are suspended in the air because they have a positive charge. The negative ions emitted by beeswax candles cause these potentially harmful particles to lose their positive charge and they fall to the ground or are actually drawn into the burning candle settling in the wax pool.

Due to these properties, burning beeswax candles in your house may reduce the effects of allergies, asthma, and other respiratory issues.

In contrast, Paraffin wax is a byproduct of petroleum. Specifically, paraffin is the thick residue in the bottom of the oil barrels that is bleached with benzene and treated with other chemicals to turn it into a wax that is marketable. Burning paraffin candles releases carcinogens into the air along with the soot that is a natural byproduct of burning any petroleum product.

A candle only has to contain 51 percent beeswax to be labeled a 100 percent beeswax candle, so donÍt be fooled by clever marketing. Because our candles are 100 percent beeswax, you can be sure you are getting the highest quality candles available and enjoying all the benefits that these wonderful candles provide.
