Will beeswax candles make your life better? I guess it depends on you. Someone just called me who used to burn our beeswax candles. However she moved and now isn’t close to a store that sells our candles. She says she really misses the wonderful smell of beeswax candles burning. So for her burning beeswax candles would bring back visions of forgotten times. We all like to be reminded of a happy past and there is nothing like our sense of smell to take us there. If you've burned premium quality beeswax candles the sweet natural honey scent is unforgettable!
Besides the ambience that the glow of a burning beeswax candle creates there are health benefits. That warm soft candlelight glow will stir feelings of warmth and a willingness to relax. Just let go! It is thought that beeswax candle light based on the light spectrum is similar to that of natural sunlight. If you walk into a room where pure beeswax candles are burning you notice the air is noticeably fresh, pure and clean. Beeswax candles purify the air rather than fill it with toxins like the most popular cheap candles made of paraffin. If you would like to find out more about that you can read this article about the scarier ingredients in paraffin candles. And don’t be fooled if they say it is ‘food grade’ paraffin. Paraffin is paraffin and you can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. (When was the last time you heard that phrase? If you don’t know what it implies Google it!)
