As the weather cools down, the candles come out! Beeswax candles can be a great source of comfort and joy throughout the cooler months as we spend more time indoors. Did you know that beeswax candles offer more than just a pretty scent?
Here are a few of the benefits of burning beeswax candles in your home:
ONE: Release negative ions.
When burned, beeswax candles produce negative ions which bind with air pollutants (positive ions) and drop to the floor, removing them from the air and leaving it cleaner!
TWO: Purify the air in your home.
Beeswax is a naturally safe, environmentally friendly, and nontoxic wax.. They're biodegradable and are free from chemical processing. They burn extremely clean with minimal smoke since they aren’t oil-based like paraffin candles.
THREE: Alleviate stress & anxiety.
Negative ions are odorless, invisible molecules that we inhale in certain environments such as mountains, near waterfalls, and beaches. Once inhaled, they reach our bloodstream and are believed to produce a biochemical reactions that increase levels of serotonin. Increased levels of serotonin is linked to helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and provide an energy boost.
FOUR: They burn slower.
Beeswax candles have a naturally higher melting point. This causes beeswax candles to burn longer and slower than paraffin and soy candles making them an excellent investment when buying candles.
FIVE: Relieve allergies.
Because of the natural ability to purify the air, beeswax candles are great for allergy sufferers. Burning beeswax candles naturally removes allergens from the air, decreasing the amount floating around your home.
SIX: Create a calming ambience.
Beeswax emits a beautiful glow and light spectrum similar to that of the sun, creating an uplifting atmosphere.
SEVEN: Closest to natural sunlight.
Because of the high melting point of beeswax, the light from a beeswax candle is brighter than that from paraffin and soy candles. Interestingly, it's the most similar to natural sunlight!
