Maybe once or twice you have lit a candle? But do you buy those same old candles stating being 100% natural which only translates to being 51% natural? Oh no, you’re probably using the same old paraffin filled candles or the soy counterparts, which may cause health problems, like asthma, allergies and a chance of a birth defect you may acquire when pregnant and not only that it also tends to pollute the air around you. But if you choose 100% pure beeswax candles they will act as an air purifier. With that said, that is already one reason to switch. You may not be convinced with that just yet, because of the price the benefits of the candles come with. But basically, it is a whole lot better than almost all candles out there. Beeswax like many air purifiers and water filters have this effective negative ion technology, cleaning the air from dust and pollen. Beeswax candles effectively reduce the symptoms of asthma, allergies, and hay fever by drawing pollutants out of the air.
Another advantage that is a plus in buying or rather switching to beeswax candles over the regular paraffin candles can actually make you save more money because it burns longer.
Now, a candle burning longer than your regular paraffin made candle is a great thing, it’s like getting what you actually pay for which is the number one benefit when customers go shopping. But how is it possible that beeswax made candles burn longer than the other regular candles? 100% pure beeswax candles naturally burns up to three times longer than paraffin. Many other candle waxes have different degrees of toxic additives to produce longer burn times, but it uses toxic additives that is why it causes pollution in the air and might harm the environment. So for example, soy wax candles can be long burning by using additives or by providing only a small white flame. The candles cost only pennies an hour to burn and provide a strong amber glow, more than the regular candles. So if we describe what a beeswax candle is the only explanation is “Your go-to-candle but only 10x better.”
Here is the specific burning time of beeswax made candle.
Beeswax Candle Burn Times
|Candle Style||Burn Time (Hours)|
|Tealights||4 – 5|
|Tubes||5 – 6|
|Bases||8 – 10|
|Tapers||12 – 13|
|3oz. Tins||12 – 13|
|Votives||15 – 16|
|Columns||20 – 25|
|3″ Round Pillar||35 – 45|
|5″ Round Pillar||55 – 65|
|7″ Round Pillar||85 – 95|
|3″ Square Pillar||40 – 45|
|5″ Square Pillar||65 – 75|
|7″ Square Pillar||90 – 100|
Imagine even the small tealights design burn four-five hours and that is the smallest size they have. Well, aside from using long burning materials, beeswax also uses top quality wicks. It has a lead and zinc free candle wicks which are top quality 100% cotton or cotton with a paper twist, and they are also pre-waxed for easy lighting. Safe and surely a great candle investment.
Aside from these benefits of switching to beeswax candles it also promotes clean burning. Meaning pure beeswax is best for those with allergies or sensitivities to scents. Recent studies have shown paraffin candles, especially ones scented with synthetic fragrance oils, can increase indoor air pollution causing allergies to be triggered. Synthetic fragrance oils are commonly used to scent most candles and contain phthalates to stabilize and enhance the scent, but beeswax candles use only natural fragrance to avoid causing allergies to the one smelling it. Phthalates are a common hazardous chemical known to cause harmful abnormalities, birth defects and reproductive problems. Now you do not want any of those. If you have sensitivities to scents you better stop using the old candles. Try beeswax made candles instead of paraffin candles which release carcinogens like toluene and benzene into the air and their soy counterparts which are often derived from GMOs, instead.
