Beeswax candles have been used since the beginning of time and are far healthier to burn than paraffin. Paraffin is a by- product of petroleum and paraffin has only been used for candle making in relatively recent times. Paraffin candles emit gases, soot, and up to 11 documented toxins when burned. Two of these toxins have been documented as being carcinogenic. A Smokey film in your home and indoor air pollution can be directly related to the burning of Paraffin candles with synthetic fragrances. The soot particles from burning these candles can get into the duct work in your home, stick to your rugs, furniture and walls. The American Lung Association has warned consumers that there is a danger of breathing unhealthy air when burning paraffin candles.

Burning Beeswax candles does not create any airborne toxins and as a matter of fact it does the opposite for your home. Burning beeswax candles emits negative ions. These ions capture and neutralize dust particles, toxins, molds, bacteria, pollen and unwanted odors. This makes these candles a great preventative tool during the winter months. Your candles must be 100% beeswax in order for you receive these benefits from your candles. Because of these attributes, burning beeswax candles before bed will provide you with cleaner air to breathe while sleeping, creating a more restful sleep. Candles that are 100% Beeswax also burn as a drip-less candle making them a much less messy candle to burn.
