• Beeswax is the absolute BEST source of wax you can burn - it is natural and renewable.

• Beeswax candles naturally burn slower, brighter and cleaner than soy or parrafin candles.

• Those who suffer from allergies, asthma or headaches often love beeswax candles for their ionic properties.

• When lit, beeswax releases negative ions into the air. When these negative ions attach to positively-charged particles like dust, allergens, bacteria and other pollutants, their they neutralize the pollutant and fall to the floor

Not all candles are made equal!

Mainstream candles are often made from paraffin wax. This is the cheapest material to make candles from, so unsurprisingly, it is the most common. Another name for paraffin wax is mineral wax, which you might see on labels. The problem with candles made from paraffin wax is the substance itself – paraffin is made from a petroleum by-product (often unethical palm oil), which is essentially the grey sludge at the bottom of the barrel of gas. It is bleached and processed before it is thought suitable to work with.

The most well-known alternative to paraffin wax is soy wax. Soy wax candles are a massive improvement from paraffin, but they are also not without their concerns. 94% of soy agriculture in the US is GMO, meaning the soybean crops have been sprayed with tons of pesticides. Soy wax requires intensive chemical processing in order to bring it to oil form. Additionally, the WWF has raised concerns about deforestation, mostly in South America, associated with the increase in soy demand. It can be hard for small-scale candle makers to trace the farms from which their soy wax derives from, as they often get it from bulk suppliers.

Beeswax and coconut wax are amongst the most sustainable waxes. They both burn clean and slowly, with beeswax famous for its incredibly bright flame. But with anything, ensuring you’re buying from farms and makers who support ethical farming techniques is vital.
