The Buzz About Beeswax: Why It's the Perfect Partner for Soy Wax
Candles have long been cherished for their ability to create cozy and tranquil atmospheres. However, not all candles are created equal and the type of wax used can significantly impact your candle experience!
In this blog post, we'll share the reasons behind our decision to craft our Taper Candles from a luxurious blend of 100% pure soy wax + the highest quality Canadian beeswax 🐝
1. Clean and Natural: Beeswax is a natural byproduct of honey production by bees. It's free from harmful chemicals and synthetic additives, making it an eco-friendly choice. Soy wax, derived from soybean oil, shares the same natural advantage. Paraffin wax, however, is actually a petroleum-based product and burning it can release harmful toxins into the air.
2. Longer Burn Time: Beeswax has a higher melting point than paraffin wax (which means it burns more slowly) and candles made from soy wax tend to have a longer burn time compared to paraffin candles of the same size. This means you get more hours of aromatic enjoyment from a single candle and have to replace it less frequently.
3. Cleaner Burn: Soy wax and beeswax candles produce less soot and smoke compared to paraffin wax candles. This cleaner burn not only keeps your candles looking pristine but also maintains the air quality in your home. It's a win-win for both aesthetics and health.
4. Natural Fragrance Enhancement: Beeswax has a subtle, sweet smell of honey that can enhance your surroundings with a natural scent. When combined with soy wax, it's creates a wonderful base for essential oils or other fragrances, resulting in a more authentic and pleasant scent experience.
5. Non-Toxic and Hypoallergenic: Beeswax and soy wax are naturally non-toxic and hypoallergenic, making them safer for people with sensitivities or allergies. Paraffin candles may contain additives and fragrances that can trigger allergies or respiratory issues.
6. Support for Beekeeping and Agriculture: We source 100% pure, Canadian-produced white beeswax for our Taper Candles. Your purchase directly supports beekeepers and helps to maintain healthy bee populations, crucial for pollinating plants and crops.
7. Environmentally Friendly: Both beeswax and soy wax are renewable resources, making them more sustainable choices than paraffin wax, which is derived from non-renewable fossil fuels. By using these natural waxes, you're reducing your carbon footprint.
In summery, candles crafted from a blend of beeswax and soy wax offer an array of benefits, from a cleaner and longer burn to environmental friendliness and enhanced fragrance. So, the next time you're shopping for Taper Candles, consider making the natural choice for both your well-being and the planet by opting for candles made with this power duo. Your senses and the environment will thank you! 🕯️🌿🐝
