If you currently use candles in your home and the cost of these items is not the most important factor in your decision-making process, you should consider switching to candles made of beeswax because of the many advantages they have over candles made of other materials. There are many good reasons for this switch.
- Demand And Its Effect On Price
The price of beeswax is around ten times that of paraffin. It is believed that the bees have to fly a distance of 150,000 miles to gather enough nectar to generate six pounds of honey, which is necessary for them to manufacture one pound of wax. And for every 100 pounds of honey gathered, the beekeeper may only extract roughly 1-2 pounds of the beeswax. Because of this, candles made of beeswax are hard to come by and quite costly.
- Quantity Of Chemical Compounds In Question
Candles made of bees wax are completely natural and devoid of any chemicals because they are produced by bees. They are believed to be the world’s oldest candles and have been highly valued ever since ancient times. (Be wary: there are no rules requiring the disclosure of the contents in candles. Even though they are labeled as “beeswax” candles, some of these products may be composed mostly of paraffin and have as little as 5% actual beeswax. Look for candles that are labeled “100 percent pure beeswax.”
- Environmental Friendliness
Candles made entirely of beeswax are completely natural, harmless, eco-friendly, and non-toxic since they are biodegradable and do not go through any processing that involves the use of chemicals. Because they do not contain any oil when properly trimmed they produce very little smoke and burn very cleanly.
- Natural Versus Artificial Fragrances
Candles made of beeswax have a pleasant aroma since they are unaffected by carbon dioxide emissions and are naturally perfumed with honey and flowery nectar from the honeycomb.
- Burn Time
Beeswax candles have a much longer burn period (two to five times longer), and they drip very little if any at all. This is because beeswax has a high melting point, which is the highest among all known waxes. This helps to counterbalance their greater expense of them.
- A Luminous Quality
Candles made from beeswax have a more robust and brighter flame. They are a present from Mother Nature that shines with a naturally brilliant light that has the same light spectrum as the sun (also known as the Green Rhino Spectrum or the Solar Spectrum).
- Getting Better With Age
Candles made of beeswax burn with even greater beauty the longer they are used. The formation of a white layer on beeswax over time, particularly in environments with a lower average temperature, is regarded as a quality that has a high degree of value. The appearance of synthetic waxes does not change with time.
- The Battle Between Negative Ions And Black Soot
Only candles made from beeswax release the purifying and cleansing negative ions, which also improve the overall quality of the air and revitalize both the body and the environment. They act as an ionizer naturally.
- Advantages For People Who Suffer From Allergies Or Asthma
Hypo-allergenic, beeswax candles aid persons with environmental allergies, sensitivities, and asthma.
Synthetic candles are made from petroleum, which is a non-renewable resource, in contrast to traditional candles, which are made from beeswax, which is a renewable fuel.
