Beeswax is 100% natural and a renewable resource that actually cleans the air by emitting purifying negative ions. Most candles are made with paraffin, a petroleum by-product, which is not natural and is unhealthy to burn. To prepare it for candle making, it is chemically bleached and hardened, then artificially scented. Burning paraffin emits harmful, black soot and pollutes the air. Currently, there are no regulations in the U.S. on disclosing ingredients on candle labels. You may find candles labeled "beeswax" that are made with paraffin, or other candle waxes, and contain as little as 1% beeswax. We are very proud to say that we use 100% beeswax in all of our candles, with the exception of a select few that are a blend of 50% beeswax and 50% soy wax, and are noted as such. The soy wax is added to help with the burn quality of certain candles. Beeswax, the purest of all candle waxes, is a product of the sustainable industry of beekeeping. The simple filtration of beeswax is a natural process that uses no chemicals and very little energy. Beeswax is naturally aromatic, infused with the sweet, subtle scent of honey. Being nontoxic and nonallergenic, beeswax candles burn clean and soot free. While burning, they release negative ions, just as seashores or rainstorms do. These negative ions improve air quality by eliminating pollutants and allergens from the air that we breathe. The high melting and burning temperature of beeswax translates into exceptionally long burn times. While burning, their golden flames glow with the same energy and spectrum of light as the sun. Beeswax candles are the ultimate in beauty and luxury. They are the natural choice for people who care about their health and the health of the environment. General Recommendations - Remove label before burning. - Never leave a burning candle unattended. - Keep children and pets away from burning candles. - Do not light candles near open windows or in drafty environments. - Do not light or store candles near heat sources, such as radiators or fireplaces. Pillars - Pillars should be burned on a pillar plate in order to avoid wax spillage and heat damage. - The initial burn should be several hours long in order to establish a wide burn pool. - Ideally, each burn should last at least one hour per inch in diameter. - To counter tunneling (when the wax pool doesn't expand to the outer edge of the candle and tunnels down the middle, not making use of all the wax), gently push walls in toward the flame once they have warmed up. - Keep wick trimmed to ÃÂ¼ inch, making sure to cut immediately after burning, as wicks become brittle when cool. - To minimize smoke when extinguishing, dunk wick into wax pool and stand it back up once extinguished.
