When on the hunt for a new candle, you may find yourself basing your decision solely on the scent. But the truth is, paying close attention to every detail from the burning time to the type of wax used could make or break your candle experience. Beeswax candles are a little trickier to come by, but this unique, all-natural form of candle will become your new favorite once you try it.
People tend to make the assumption that all-natural and toxin-free products tend to be a little less effective. Well, that's certainly not the case when it comes to beeswax candles. Not only will a candle made from beeswax emit a brighter flame and avoid producing soot when burning, but they also have a ton of benefits. While your beeswax candle works to fill your space with the scent of your choice, it actually also works to cleanse the air by neutralizing pollutants such as dust and mold in your atmosphere. A candle with a purpose! It helps that beeswax candles tend to come with an underlying note of honey scent that's super relaxing.
Scent: Just like any other wax, beeswax candles come in a variety of scents - although, if you're into honey scents, they do them best!
Flame: For fans of beeswax candles, one of the best parts is how bright the flame is. The potency of beeswax candles can emit a brighter and longer-lasting flame than other wax types. This makes it great at lighting up the room if you're going for a lights-off candlelit vibe.
Benefits: Beeswax candles being all-natural isn't their only upside. While paraffin candles should generally be avoided by those with asthma or allergies, beeswax candles are actually beneficial as they cleanse and purify the air around them.
