A time-honored natural resource, beeswax begins as a translucent wax secretion from the abdominal glands of a honeybee. It’s made up of fatty acids and oils. The honeybee uses this to create the honeycomb walls and cappings. Its color yellows after being in contact with plant material stored within the honeycomb.
Beeswax candles are hypoallergenic and cleanse the air on a molecular level. Scientifically, burning beeswax candles emits negative ions which neutralize positive ions (airborne allergens like dust, dander, pollen, smoke). In nature, negative ions are found at beach fronts and at the top of mountains, where there is little to no air pollution. This medicinal property contributes to why we feel good after lighting a beeswax candle.
