Beeswax is Non-Toxic and Clean Burning

Beeswax candles, unlike paraffin candles, are non-toxic and non-carcinogenic.   Most people are unaware that paraffin wax starts life at the bottom of an oil barrel.  Once the petrol has been processed from the oil, the waste that is left is then whitened, bleached, and a few other ingredients are added and there you have paraffin wax. 

Have you ever wondered why you get those black marks on the jar and on the walls when you burn a candle?   This is because paraffin wax when burnt, emits the same toxins found in diesel and petrol, these toxins leave a soot residue which is visible on walls and ceilings and is polluting your air.   

Would you want this burning in your home around your family and your pets?

Our beeswax candles are clean burning, they produce no soot which means no more black marks on your walls and ceilings!

Therapeutic Benefits of Essential Oils

Most candles contain fragrance oils which are manmade and synthetic.  There can be as many as 4000 different chemicals used by the fragrance industry and many of which have never passed any safety checks.  Our candles do not contain any manmade fragrances.  They contain only 100% pure essential oils which are natural and distilled from plants and flowers, the inhalation of which can support and balance our body’s various systems.

We have spent a lot of time researching the properties of essential oils and our signature scents have been carefully blended for not only their therapeutic benefits but also for their beautiful aroma.

Beeswax is a Natural Air Purifier

When burning, beeswax candles release negative ions which can relieve stress and boost energy. Most ions in the air around us are positive ions and are released from everyday items including food, pets, dust, even viruses and bacteria.  Too many positive ions in the air can make us feel bad and draw pollution and allergens to them.  The negative ions, released by beeswax candles, bind with the positive ions in the air causing the positive ions to fall to the ground creating a cleaner atmosphere.  As a result, beeswax candles, can be better for allergy sufferers than other candles.
