Why Beeswax Based Candles?

Regular candles are made out of Paraffin Wax, which causes indoor air pollution when lit. They put put of chemicals that are considered to be just as dangerous as second-hand smoke. Paraffin is a petroleum waste product and it has to be deodorized and chemically bleached before it can be made into wax. Paraffin creates highly toxic benzene and toluene when burned (both are known carcinogens). In fact, the toxins released from paraffin candles are the same as those found in diesel fuel fumes.

Soy Wax has been the trending healthy candle lately (as opposed to the most toxic Paraffin candle). The problem with soy is that they are Genetically Modified, bleached and hydrogenated. Toxic pesticides are often used on Soy crops. Now, you are burning these chemicals and breathing them in.

Beeswax Candles ionize the air and neutralize toxic compounds and other contaminants. So, instead of contaminating the air with Paraffin candles, your can be purifying the air in your home with beeswax and beneficial essential oils.

Beeswax is the most expensive wax, but the healthiest candle option.

  1. Love this! Where do you buy your ingredients?

    1. Thanks!
      Beeswax- I bought the Beeswax off of Amazon because I went to two stores that did not have this in store. I bought it from Awaken Nature- Certified 100% Organic but it looks like they are out of stock in the yellow color (which after doing research is the best color to order). I am hoping to get this from Local farms in the Hamptons during the summer.
      Coconut Oil- I like the Trader Joes Coconut Oil which is Fair Trade, Organic and more reasonable than buying it from other stores. I have also bought from Whole Foods, or used the brand Spectrum. Just make sure whichever you get, buy it in a glass bottle since all oils are plastic soluble.
      Essential Oils- I have aura cacia and a few from DoTerra. From my research, DoTerra seems like a reputable brand.

      1. Awesome, thank you for the details! I love TJ’s organic coconut oil, too! 😊
