A frequently asked question, here's why...

beeswax

paraffin wax

soy wax

  • Beeswax is the ONLY all natural wax and the purest of all candle waxes. It purifies the air you breath naturally of odors, pollen, smoke, mold and other allergens.

  • Beeswax candles burn brighter and exceptionally longer than paraffin wax or soy/palm wax.

  • Beeswax gets its wonderful colour and honey aroma from the pollen and nectar of the flowers that the bees have pollinated. This natural, sensual aromatherapy is often described by our customers as heavenly.

  • Beeswax candles burn with a soothing, warm golden glow

  • Paraffin wax is a non-renewable byproduct of the petro chemical industry and is created from the sludge on the bottom of crude oil barrels. The black sludge is bleached and processed into candle wax.

  • In addition to the chemicals that are already inside of this wax, candle manufacturers will then add colors and fragrances to enhance the appeal of the candles.

  • Numerous studies show that regular (paraffin) candles pollute indoor air as it contains toxins that are carcinogenic (cancer causing) when burned. Now imagine burning this in your home and breathing it in every day!

  • Soy wax is produced from soybean oil (hydrogenated oil) and is not a natural wax.

  • Soy wax is a naturally soft wax therefore other ingredients such as stearic acid or other additives are used to produce longer burn times.

  • Fragrance oils and synthetic dyes are often added to soy candles

Eco-friendly beeswax candles have been the choice of candle connoisseurs throughout the ages and are the natural choice for those who care about their health and the environment. 

A carefully handcrafted beeswax candle reminds us of our connection to nature and supports local beekeepers
