Healthier Wax for the Environment

Today is the best time to help the environment. Simple things like usage of conventional candle waxes goes a long way for our mother earth. This 2021, if you are still one of those people who sticks with paraffin wax, then we think it is time for us to educate ourselves about making a switch into a better and healthier alternative.

Why beeswax?

Beeswax is a 100% natural renewable resource created by the bees. They don’t release any harmful toxic chemicals when burned. In fact, it is the oldest candle known ever since ancient history. Nowadays, when you use beeswax, you are helping the environment in staying safe.

Health benefits from beeswax:

  1. Biodegradable – 100% biodegradable, eco-friendly.
  2. Natural air purifiers – When burning beeswax, they release negative ions. These things have a purifying effect, helping clear the air of dust and pollen. It removes any foul odor 
  3. Safe for children – Children who have a weaker respiratory system would get triggered with chemical scents from other candle waxes. Since beeswax includes no chemical compounds, it is proven to be completely safe for children.
  4. Supports responsible beekeeping – Unfortunately, healthy bees are under threat due to the increase of air pollution and lack of financial support for beekeeping. If you buy beeswax, you are also helping out by means of giving money to financially aid the population of bees.

For your information, beeswax candles can also be found at select areas seasonally because honey bees are the only ones who can make these, hence, resulting in the products’ inavailability, perhaps limited supplies only. It can be a little pricey as it is rare and expensive, costing 10 times more than paraffin but if this wax can help nature, then making a switch is never an option.
