If your anything like me you have a house full of candles in all shapes and sizes, in jars, in tins, in glasses or just sitting on the shelf.
All candles are not equal!
The best, most natural type of candle is a bees wax candle. Bees wax comes straight from the hive so it gives off a slight honey scent naturally. When scents are added to the bees wax it gives a longer scent throw both hot and cold.
Bees wax emits negative ions. This means not only will it make your rooms smell amazing but it will also purify the air while it's at it.
Because bees wax is a hard wax it has a longer burn time. Your candles will last longer saving you money. Bees wax is used in all types of candles including jar candles, pillar candles, votives & tea lights.
The next best wax for candles is Soy.
Soy wax is also a natural product derived from soybean oil. Soy wax is a soft wax so it is generally always used in jar or container candles. Soy wax has a slow burn time meaning your candles last longer.
Both Bees Wax & Soy candles or melts produce little to none smoke and soot and are both natural so you are not breathing in toxins of man made waxes such as parafin wax which is the type of wax used in mass candle making like the candles you purchase from most cheap stores.
There are other types of waxes used in decorative candles. These waxes burn fast and most will emit soot & toxins. They are fine for occasional use but if your like me and love candles burning constantly the natural waxes are better options for your health.
If you want natural non toxic candles look for bees wax or soy wax candles & melts.
If you don't particularly like to have a flame burning wax melts or candle warmers are a perfect option. Just plug in your warmer , pop in your candle or melts and let the heat bulb melt your wax & fragrance your room.
