Benefits of Burning Beeswax Candles

Benefits of Burning Beeswax Candles

Here at Tamarack Jack’s, we spend a lot of time working on products that are natural and have health benefits. We are especially proud of our handmade beeswax candles. Our main beeswax creator, also known as Mama Bear to us, makes her molds and her wicks from scratch. That’s no easy feat, so we are beyond proud of our one of a kind beeswax candle collection!

Here are the reasons we do it :)
Beeswax candles are a natural and sustainable alternative to conventional candles made from paraffin wax or other synthetic materials. They have been used for centuries for their warm, golden glow, but the benefits of beeswax candles go far beyond aesthetics.

  1. Beeswax candles are environmentally friendly Unlike paraffin candles, beeswax candles are made from natural, renewable resources. They are biodegradable and do not release harmful chemicals or toxins into the environment when burned. Plus, beeswax is a byproduct of honey production, so using beeswax candles supports sustainable beekeeping practices.

  2. Beeswax candles are long-lasting Beeswax candles burn much slower and last longer than other types of candles. They have a higher melting point, which means they burn more slowly and evenly, giving you more burn time per candle.

  3. Beeswax candles have a natural scent Beeswax candles have a natural, honey-like scent that is soothing and calming. They do not contain any artificial fragrances or dyes, making them a great choice for people with allergies or sensitivities to synthetic scents.

  4. Beeswax candles emit negative ions When burned, beeswax candles release negative ions into the air. Negative ions are known to purify the air by neutralizing pollutants and allergens, which can help improve air quality and reduce respiratory problems.

  5. Beeswax candles produce less soot Unlike paraffin candles, which can produce a lot of soot when burned, beeswax candles produce very little soot. This means they are better for your indoor air quality and reduce the amount of cleaning needed to keep your home clean.

In conclusion, beeswax candles are a natural and sustainable alternative to conventional candles. They are environmentally friendly, long-lasting, have a natural scent, emit negative ions, and produce less soot. Whether you want to create a cozy atmosphere in your home or enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy, beeswax candles are a great choice.
