Why beeswax candles? Beeswax candles have been burned for centuries as a main source of light. Beeswax candles burn clean, are virtually dripless and, while burning have a subtle honey aroma.
Why not paraffin candles? Paraffin is a petroleum by-product. When candles made from paraffin are burned, toxic chemicals are released into the air. Beeswax burns without any toxins released into the air and is smokeless. Burning beeswax candles also cleanse the surrounding air by releasing negative ions.
Beeswax burns longer than paraffin and soy wax. Paraffin has a much lower melting temperature of approximately 99 degrees Fahrenheit while soy wax has a melting point of 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Beeswax starts to melt at approximately 140 degrees Fahrenheit meaning that it will burn much longer than paraffin or soy based products. The approximate burning time for beeswax is 1 inch per hour.
