Organic Beeswax Candles
There’s nothing more relaxing than burning a candle and curling up under a warm blanket, am I right? The warm golden glow. The soft, flickering shadows. The delicious aromas. Ahhhh, pure zen.
But did you know that candles can actually be super harmful if you’re not purchasing the right ones? Let's dive in for a minute!
Research from the EPA shows that candles with lead core wicks can lead to higher levels of lead in the air and may also emit chemicals like formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, and acrolein far above acceptable EPA-recommended levels. Exposure to high amounts of lead has been linked to hormone disruption, behavioral problems, learning disabilities, and numerous health problems.
There is also the issue with traditional paraffin wax, which is derived from petroleum and can contain various toxins, carcinogens, and air pollutants. Petroleum releases carcinogenic soot when burned, which can cause respiratory problems and will aggravate the conditions of those who already have asthma, lung, or heart problems.
The overpowering scent of most candles comes from synthetic oils that release microscopic particles which can cause cancer and other health problems when inhaled. All of these things in commercial candles can lead to headaches, vision issues, asthmatic flares and so much more!
To keep your air clean when burning candles, it’s best to use candles with organic beeswax wax, 100% cotton or hemp wicks, and high-quality essential oils or added scents free of phthalates and toxins. Because natural waxes have a lower melting point, they often last longer as well. This means you get more for your money, and you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite candles for much longer. Plus, the wax used in these candles are biodegradable, so it’s easier to clean spills and re-use these gorgeous amber glass containers when they are empty.
Besides being all-natural, beeswax candles possess several health benefits when compared to the common paraffin wax candles that you find in many stores. Using these beeswax and coconut candles in place of paraffin candles may help improve allergy and asthma symptoms. Like air purifiers, beeswax candles release negative ions that neutralize the particles from air pollutants, rendering them harmless. Purify your air with natural beeswax candles instead of polluting the air with petroleum-based candles.
These are beeswax-based candle with added coconut to help extend the candle’s burn time, making a typical beeswax candle last longer. That means your candle burns slowly and throws scent well (meaning it can more easily fill up a space with smell)! Adding coconut also helps prevent ‘tunneling’ (when the center of your candle burns, but the outer edges don’t), an issue commonly associated with beeswax candles. Coconut also burns CLEANER and is more SUSUTAINABLE than other added waxes like paraffin.
