Beeswax candles are environmentally friendly, no petrochemicals are used, compared to a normal candle which is usually made of paraffin wax . Therefore you get a cleaner burning candle which also makes it better for you too!
In fact they produce negative ions which are said to make for healthier living by helping to clean the air from pollens,dust and cigarette smoke.
The beeswax has a higher melting point than a normal candle wax making it last longer, so although a beeswax candle may appear more expensive when you first buy it, you are going to replace it less often.You can get about 30-35 hours from a 2and1/2 inch by 3and1/4 pillar candle.
It also smells nicer, giving a wonderful hint of natural honey without the use of unatural chemical fragrances. If you are looking for fragranced beeswax candles then it’s best to burn candles that are made with natural essential oils.
