BEESWAX & YOUR HEALTH

Beeswax is produced by “honeybees” in their wax glands at a certain age of their life. It takes 8 lbs of honey to produce 1lb of beeswax. As one honeybee exudes wax flakes, another collects them off her and 
after chewing the flake awhile to shape it, she construct their homes in their self-developed, highly efficient shaped honeycomb, a shape that is the strongest with the most space and with the least 
amount of materials and is unsurpassed even by computer generated models. 

Beeswax was used as one of the original forms of “light”. The light produced by beeswax is the full spectrum of light. Burning beeswax produces negative ions that circulate the room and attract pollutants, 
in much the same way as a magnet attracts iron filings.

Dust, odour, moulds, bacteria, viruses and other toxins are captured and then neutralized. Beeswax Candles have always been known for their clean burning capabilities. All of our candles are made using 100% Pure Beeswax and 100% cotton wicking which are the healthiest candles you can burn.
