Our bees provide many essential and natural benefits.
Bees play an important role in keeping our world functioning. With the amount of pollination that they do, they contribute to various animal and plant species' survival, including our own.
Beeswax Benefits for Candles
One of the biggest benefits of beeswax candles is that it burns and combats indoor air pollution by releasing negative ions into the air, refreshing it with its sweet honey scent. Choosing to use beeswax candles with simpler, gentler ingredients reduces exposure to toxic compounds in the household and prevents those compounds from making their way into your environment.Paraffin candles are shown to negatively affect indoor air quality because of the chemical by-products in their soot. All paraffin candles produce soot. Another benefit of beeswax candles is that they burn cleanly, without soot.
Beewax benefits for Skin Care
Beeswax has been shown to have multiple therapeutic properties. The natural components of beeswax also give it healing properties. Beeswax products are used on the exterior of your skin. Unlike honey, it's not meant to be consumed. Some of these include:
Moisturizing – Beeswax contains natural emulsifiers that help retain moisture, making it a great ingredient for dry, chapped lips.
Protects lips from UV rays – Much like how sunblock protects your skin, beeswax can protect your lips from harmful UV rays.
Protective – Beeswax contains antibacterial elements that are great for protecting sensitive skin.
Natural – No parabens, added chemicals, or alcohol that could be irritating to skin.
Sweet taste and smell – Natural beeswax has a sweet taste and smell that is pleasant to wear on the lips.
