3 Reasons Why Beeswax Candles Are the Best at Keeping Your Home Toxin-Free
From tealights to taper candles, the perfect way to set a mood and create an inviting atmosphere is with a stylish candle. However, not all candles are made the same! Some candles could be toxic (read more about that in our Archive here) or unsustainable. Luckily, we have found some of the best environmentally friendly candles in the market— Apis Cera. Here are 3 reasons why beeswax candles are the best at keeping your home toxin-free:
01. There are zero chemical compounds in beeswax
Because beeswax candles are all-natural, they don’t produce any toxic byproducts when they burn. A 100% pure beeswax candle is not mixed with other waxes and therefore its production is not interfering with the environmental ecosystem. Beeswax is used in its native-raw state which does not involve bleaching or hydrogenation, and has a natural honey aroma. (also, a pure beeswax candle actually has a longer burn time than any other type of candle!)
02. Beeswax helps neutralize odors in your home
100% beeswax candles add a naturally sweet aroma to your home and are an easy way to deodorize the air without artificial fragrances. When you burn a beeswax candle you actually purify the air in the room as opposed to contaminating it when burning paraffin/soy/palm wax candles.
The air we breathe contains billions of electrically charged particles called positive ions. Positive Ions help us absorb and utilize oxygen, and therefore affect our lives and well being in a powerful way. The positive ions in the air can affect our mood, energy and health. Too many positive ions make us feel bad and they are loaded with toxic particles and allergens that are drawn to them and suspended in the air. Negative ions, on the other hand, balance the air by increasing the ratio of negative ions to positive ions, the ideal and necessary scenario for clean air.
The more negative ions you have in the air the better you will feel. Negative ions are nature’s air purifiers, cleaning the air of dust, mold, bacteria, viruses, and other pollutants. Beeswax candle is the only candle that actually produces negative ions (burning other candles produce positive ions), which help to remove pollution from the air.
03. Supports the health of the beehives and small businesses!
When you purchase pure beeswax candles you support beekeepers and the entire beekeeping industry. Bees are absolutely vital to the health of our environment and ecosystem. Supporting brands like Apis Cera will help support bee communities worldwide!
