The Benefits of Using Beeswax Candles

The Benefits of Using Beeswax Candles

  January 9, 2018

There are numerous benefits to using beeswax candles.

Beeswax candles are not only gorgeous to look at, but help clean the air.

Beeswax candles have a wonderful natural color and honey-like scent from the nectar of the flowers the bees are pollinating. Because the color of the candles comes from nature, you may notice slight inconsistencies. If you opt for colored beeswax candles, make sure they are made with eco-friendly dyes that contain no hazardous additives.

Beeswax does not smoke as it burns nor does it pollute the air like some other candles. Beeswax candles benefit the air by releasing negative ions when they burn. This ionizes the air with free electrons, which attach to pollen, dust, bacteria, cigarette smoke creating larger particles which drop to the floor or attach to positively charge objects like walls and tables for easy cleaning. By removing those pollutants from the air, the beeswax candles may benefit people who suffer from allergies or hay fever. Your mood can also benefit from beeswax candles.  Are you feeling down with the lack of sun in the winter? Seasonal affective disorder is common when the seasons change. Beeswax candles emit a warm, healthy light that is the same spectrum as the sun.  The warm light may be just the thing to help brighten up your day!

What do you do with the little bit of beeswax that is left over at the end?

There are TONS of things that beeswax is good for:

  • Lubricant: Do you have a sliding door or drawer that sticks? Rub some beeswax in the area and give it a try.
  • Rust prevention: coat your hand tools to prevent them from rusting. You can also put beeswax on nails or screws to help them get into place better and coat them to prevent rust.
  • Seal envelops: Want to make your letter stand out? Seal it with melted beeswax. Pick out a cool stamp and create an amazing first impression.
  • Food Wrap: You must see our Beexswax food wrap. Sustainable, non-toxic and reusable.
