There's nothing better than the soft, warm glow of a candle in a space, especially in the
fall and winter months. They add warmth, comfort, and soft scents to a space, but unfortunately so many of the candles out there are loaded with toxic ingredients that you do not want in your home! We want to make sure we are bringing items into our home that will be beneficial to the home environment as well as our health. There are options out there for a healthier and more environmentally friendly candles and my absolute favourite is beeswax!
*Beeswax is all natural and it is the only natural candle wax that does not require dedicated land use – it is a by-product of the honey and food pollination industries. *Beeswax naturally burns cleaner, brighter, hotter, and longer than most choices
*Beeswax does not require chemical processing or additives to enhance these properties
*Beeswax candles are less toxic, all natural, they do not produce byproducts and heavy soot when burned
*Beeswax candles have a mildly sweet natural honey scent and does not require artificially scents. You can find ones with added pure essential oil if you desire different scents in your space or learn how to anoint candles yourself with oils at home to suit your mood
* Beeswax candles produce negative ions when burned, and those ions help neutralize pollutants in the air
When shopping for beeswax candles, it is important to buy high quality candles to take maximum advantage of their health benefits. The candle should be 100 percent beeswax without added chemicals that can taint the wax and negate its natural benefits. If essential oils are used to give the candle an alternative scent, the oils should themselves be 100 percent pure. I personally and in my clients home use Honey Candles. It is a Canadian company that is family owned and operated. They have been perfecting their candle making craft for over 20 years and are a leading choice for premium handmade 100% pure beeswax candles.
