BEESWAX IS NON-TOXIC.
Beeswax candles contain none of the harmful chemicals sometimes found in paraffin candles. Unlike Soy waxes, Beeswax is not Genetically Modified, bleached and hydrogenated.

BEESWAX IS LONG BURNING.
Beeswax candles naturally burn significantly longer than paraffin and soy candles, ranging from two to five times as long. Paraffin wax burns quickly.

BEESWAX IS CLEAN BURNING.

Pure beeswax candles burn very clean when trimmed properly, producing hardly any soot. Paraffin and Soy wax produce that black soot that stains candles holders, walls, and furniture.

BEESWAX IS A BETTER VALUE.
You may not believe it but beeswax candles are often similar in price or even cheaper in cost than paraffin and soy candles because paraffin and Soy waxes burn quicker and do not last as long as Beeswax candles.

BEESWAX NATURALLY DRIPS LESS.
Beeswax taper candles are naturally drip less in normal draft free conditions. Paraffin candles can be made drip less, with additional non-natural chemicals added to them.

BEESWAX BURNS BRIGHTLY.
The light emitted by a beeswax candle is much stronger and brighter than that of any other type of wax. Its light spectrum is the same as that of the sun. Since paraffin and soy wax have a lower melting point, its flame is weaker and lower on the color spectrum.

BEESWAX IS RENEWABLE, NATURAL, AND SUSTAINABLE.
Beeswax is a renewable resource while paraffin wax is a petroleum / oil by product.

BEESWAX IS SAFE FOR ALLERGIES.
Beeswax candles can be burned around those with allergies, asthma, or those who are sensitive to chemicals. Paraffin wax is a fossil fuel byproduct. Studies have proven that burning a paraffin candle releases some of the very same carcinogens as burning gasoline and oil.

BEESWAX EMITS NEGATIVE IONS.
Studies had shown that Beeswax candles are the only candles that emit negative ions while burning. Negative ions help clean the air of toxins, dust, and allergy causing agents.

BEESWAX NEVER EXPIRES.
Unlike soy wax, Beeswax will not go rancid. However, a harmless white film called “Bloom” develops naturally over the beeswax over time. Many find this to be very desirable as you can determine the purity of beeswax by the evidence of Bloom.
