Rare and expensive. Beeswax costs about 10 times more than paraffin. It is estimated that the bees must fly 240,000 km to collect enough nectar to produce 2.7 Kgs of honey. just to secrete less then half a Kg of wax. For every 45 Kg of honey harvested, the beekeeper can only obtain about 0.9 Kg of beeswax.
Created by the bees, 100% natural, chemical-free. Oldest candle known to man and prized since ancient times. (Note: There are no regulations on disclosing candle ingredients. Candles labeled as “beeswax” may be predominantly made of paraffin and contain as little as 5% beeswax. Look for “100% pure beeswax candles”.
Environmentally friendly and safe, non-toxic. Burns very clean with little smoke when trimmed properly as they are not oil-based. 100% beeswax candles are natural, undergoes no chemical processing and are biodegradable.
Smells great as they are naturally scented by the honey and floral nectar in the honeycomb; carbon-neutral.
Have a high melting point (in fact the highest among all known waxes) which results in a significantly longer (2-5 times) burn time and drip very little, if any at all. This offsets their higher cost.
Burns stronger and brighter. Emit naturally bright light of the same light spectrum as the sun . They are a gift from nature!
Burns with even more beauty with age. Over time, beeswax develops a white film (especially in cooler climate), which is deemed as a very desirable feature.
The only candle that emits negative ions to purify, cleanse, improve air quality, and invigorate the body. A natural ionizer!
Hypo-allergenic, benefit those with environmental allergies, sensitivities, and asthma.
