If you are considering different types of candles, it is important to be aware of beeswax candle health benefits so you can choose candles that are best for your lifestyle and health needs.
About Connemara Beeswax and Candles
Our beeswax is the all natural, non-toxic waxy substance secreted by bees after they consume honey from the hills, forests, lakes and streams of connemara. Bees use this wax to construct their honeycombs, and when cleaned and filtered, it can be used for beautiful and beneficial candles.
Many people prefer beeswax candles to paraffin candles because as an all natural product, they are more attractive to individuals who practice a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle.
The bees are not harmed in the production of beeswax candles, and because it takes approximately 33 million visits to flowers for bees to create a single pound of beeswax, many individuals also feel beeswax has a stronger spiritual connection to an ancient force and power of mother nature than other types of candles.
It is the beeswax candle health benefits that attract most users, however, and those benefits can be substantial depending on the type of candle and the health of the person burning it.
Smell great as they are naturally scented by the honey and floral nectar in the honeycomb; carbon-neutral. They have a high melting point (in fact the highest among all known waxes) which results in a significantly longer (2-5 times) burn time and drip very little, if any at all. This offsets their higher cost.
Burn stronger and brighter. Emit naturally bright light of the same light spectrum as the sun (Green Rhino Spectrum, Solar Spectrum). They are a gift from nature! The only candle that emits negative ions to purify, cleanse, improve air quality, and invigorate the body. A natural ionizer!
Hypo-allergenic, benefit those with environmental allergies, sensitivities, and asthma. Originate from a renewable fuel - beeswax.
Burn with even more beauty with age. Over time, beeswax develops a white film (especially in cooler climate), which is deemed as a very desirable feature.
