 Beeswax candles are some of the oldest candles in history. Besides being all-natural, they have many health benefits. They are reported to improve allergy and asthma symptoms, as they produce negative ions when burned, and those ions help to neutralize pollutants in the air. This helps eliminate dust, odors, and mold in the atmosphere, easing allergy and asthma symptoms and improving breathing for anyone nearby.

 

-Beeswax candles are 100% bee-made, therefore 100% natural. Making it a renewable resource too, unlike the petroleum products used to make paraffin candles. They also smell natural, since beeswax picks up the honey and nectar scents found in honeycomb. While burning, they emit the same light spectrum as the sun, which gives a more comforting ambiance.

 -People who are sensitive to fragrances often prefer light-scented beeswax to overly fragranced candles. The problem with paraffin wax lies in its origin. It’s a by-product of petroleum refining and is made from the sludge at the bottom of crude oil barrels. As a result of the subsequent bleaching treatment from benzene or toluene, paraffin wax is filled with seven documented toxins, including two known carcinogens. As well as, chemical colorings added to make them more appealing. Our eyes and noses may be fooled, but our bodies pay for all the toxins we breathe in when we burn those candles.

 

Other benefits of beeswax candles have been noted over the years, some are as follows: 

  • Increases sense of well-being and mental clarity. Often called a natural anti-depressant, especially for those with Seasonal Affective Disorder.
  • Improves breathing rate, decreases blood pressure and relieves tension. There’s some evidence that they may combat free radicals in your body too.
  • Helps you sleep better by normalizing serotonin in the brain.
  • Reduces headaches and other sickness. One study found that installing negative ion air cleaners in a high-tech work environment reduced employee reports of headaches and illness by 78%.
