TOP 3 BENEFITS OF BEESWAX

purify your air with beeswax

That's right! When beeswax is heated (usually in candle form), it releases negative ions. Pollution, dust, toxins, etc. in the air are positively charged, allowing these negative ions produced by the beeswax to attach to the to the positive ions and weigh them down. The results: the air you breathe is pure & clean. This is especially beneficial to someone with asthma or allergies. 

NOTE: Though more costly than other waxes, beeswax extends the life of our candles because it takes longer to burn, but the main reason why we include it in our soy blend is because we are looking out for your health ;)
