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.
