100% Beeswax is all natural and contains no chemicals or toxins. Waxes like paraffin contain many harmful chemicals and additives that are released into the air as they burn. Causing harm to the environment as well as yourself as you breathe these toxins in. Beeswax is a much better alternative because it is very clean burning, causing little to no soot output.
One financial benefit to Beeswax candles is that they have much longer burn times. The reason for this is beeswax has a higher melting point than other waxes. This means, you get to keep and enjoy your beeswax candles longer and don’t have to buy replacements as often. Beeswax candles may come at a higher cost but it’s worth it in the long run. The benefits they offer, outweigh the affordability of toxic paraffin candles.
Pure beeswax candles work as a natural air purifier. They clean the air as they burn and can even reduce allergies and help those with asthma. Beeswax candles with no added fragrance, have a natural honey smell that can help neutralize odors in your home. The gentle, sweet aroma is so relaxing and not overpowering in any way. But you have to make sure they’re 100% pure beeswax in order to properly experience these benefits and delicious scent.
To summarize, beeswax is an amazing alternative to toxic waxes like paraffin. Not only does it naturally have a sweet and intoxicating smell, Beeswax candles burn brighter, longer and stronger than many other wax types. They are also free from chemicals, carcinogens, additives and fillers that other candles may contain.
