Beeswax Candles at Lee's Bees!
We have had so many requests for pure, poured beeswax candles that I am happy to let you know that they are now being made here at the farm in time for Christmas giving. Since I began investigating these candles, I have learned some things that I never knew! Here are some of them:
BEESWAX CLEANS THE AIR: Beeswax, (unlike paraffin, which produces soot and toxic particulates and actually adds to indoor pollution), burns completely cleanly. While burning, it produces negative ions, much like a rain shower does, and these negative ions attach themselves to pollens, dust particles and other particulates in the air, causing them to drop harmlessly to the ground, where they can be vacuumed up.
Beeswax candles, when burned for 30 minutes before bedtime, lead to more restful sleep, probably because of the negative ions that they produce.
Beeswax burns at a very high temperature, yet burns far longer than candles made from soy or paraffin. It also produces a light spectrum that is very close to that of natural sunlight. Perhaps this is why people gravitate to these candles and why they are preferred for spiritual settings.
Beeswax candles smell great!
Pure Beeswax, as labeled, can contain by law, up to 39% paraffin. This seems wrong to us! All our candles are 100% pure, unrefined beeswax, hand-poured here at the farm.
At this time we are offering 2.5" tall by 1.75" thick, and 6" tall by 2.25" thick pillars. We will continue to add more as we go along. AS ALWAYS: if you have a special request, call us, we'll see if we can fill it.
Our candles will become part of our gift line for Christmas as well as being available individually. Photos this week!
