If you look closely at our label there’s a number of phrases that describe Honey Candles®. I would like to tell you what each of those adjectives mean for you. I will go through them as they may appear on your label.
Eco-friendly Beeswax is a totally all natural product used in its native state using no additives and very little processing, (unlike soy, palm and paraffin waxes). Beeswax is the purest of waxes. Honey bees are multifunctional and large amounts of agricultural land are not required only for the production of beeswax. Beeswax candles are the environmentally friendly choice.
Burns Longer Beeswax naturally burns three times longer than paraffin. You can enjoy your all natural beeswax candles that much longer without the danger of exposure to harsh additives that are added to paraffin candles to make them burn longer.
Made in Canada Not only are our natural beeswax Honey Candles® made in Canada, so is our packaging and all our printed material. Our beeswax supply comes from Western Canada. We support Canadian printers, manufacturers and beekeepers as well as provide jobs for many residents in our community.
Clean All natural beeswax candles burn cleanly, are non-allergenic and are recommended by the American Lung Association. Beeswax is best for those with allergies or sensitivities to artificial scents. Recent studies have shown paraffin candles, especially if they are scented, can decrease indoor air quality and contribute to toxicity.
Air Purifier If you burn natural pure beeswax candles you will find your air noticeably cleaner. It will smell pure and fresh with a light natural honey aroma.
Natural You can't find more 'natural' than pure all natural beeswax. Beeswax candles have been used as a source of light for centuries and nothing has really changed except perhaps the filtering process and the character of the wicks and moulds that improve the quality of burn and light.
Warm Amber Glow Based on the light spectrum, light emitted from a beeswax candle is similar to sunlight. The warm amber glow is relaxing and soothing. Studies show that burning beeswax stimulates the pituitary gland, heightening dream activity and increasing intuition and creativity. Some say burning an all natural beeswax candle before bed helps them to have a restful sleep.
Bee Friendly Bees pollinate 1/3 of the food we eat. Just think about the fresh peaches and apples we enjoy. Honey bees are a vital resource in our ecosystem. Most of us know they are in danger. Without them Honey candles® would not have natural beeswax to make your candles. We have donated two years in a row to honey bee research to help find the cause and reverse their disappearance.
Dripless We do not add anything to make our natural beeswax candles dripless. Our candles are virtually dripless burned in an ideal environment without drafts from things like open windows, doors, fans or furnaces . But if the environment changes and you have a draft your candle may react. Find out how you can protect your furniture in the event of the unexpected.
Honey Aroma As your natural beeswax candles burn you can expect the lovely natural scent of honey to fill your room.
