Candles made from 100% organic beeswax with a hint of coconut oil, scented with peppermint essential oils, plus organic wicks et al is now being introduced at Crystal House. The color of the wax is all natural, never dyed, and may vary from batch to batch. Beeswax candles burn slower than candles made from other ingredients, so they last much longer. Our beeswax does not undergo any chemical processing; thus, it is biodegradable
Besides the pure pleasure of burning our naturally scented beeswax candles we also wanted to share some exciting health-giving facts about how burning these candles can improve your life and those around you. The wax produces negative ions when burned which help to neutralize pollutants in the air. This aids in the elimination of dust, odors, and mold in the atmosphere, easing allergy and asthma symptoms and improving breathing for everyone around. Pure and simple, you and your family will feel better.
Given all these health-enhancing properties, you might be thinking, beeswax is rare and expensive. Yes, it does cost more than paraffin which, by the way, creates highly toxic benzene and toluene when burned. These chemicals are known carcinogens. Toxins released from paraffin candles are the same as those found in diesel fuel fumes. While soy candles will release less of the carcinogens and toxins found in paraffin most soy candles on the market today contain a high percentage of the poisonous paraffin. Hence, they are highly toxic and environmentally unfriendly products that literally poison the air we breathe. Conversely, burning beeswax candles improves air quality.
It is estimated that the bees must fly 150,000 miles to collect enough nectar to produce six pounds of honey just to secrete one pound of wax. Today we are becoming more and more aware about the vital importance of saving the bees. Not only do they pollinate our plants by nature, they produce nutritious and yummy honey. Honey has also been found to have healing properties, e.g., it is currently being made into skin lotions as well as pharmaceutical ointments. And, now we know, as the Egyptians did since 3000 BC, that the air we breathe will be purified when burning beeswax candles.
We invite you to realize the experience of literally breathing fresh air in your naturally ionized home when you burn our health lifting beeswax candles. And, if that isn’t enough, the organic wick and wax are lovingly cradled in a stunning reusable black glass vessel topped off by a decorative parade of bees deep etched by hand around the rim.
Our mission is to raise awareness about the importance of preserving bees on our planet and to continue to obtain beeswax from American organic apiaries. But, most of all, we want to share the amazing purifying air benefits of burning beeswax because it’s just one more reason to save the bees!
