Beeswax is a good value: It achieves a very efficient and complete burn and thus burns brighter, hotter, cleaner, and longer than any other wax. When properly burned, beeswax candles are smokeless and dripless. Measured by burn time, beeswax candles are usually a better value than boutique paraffin – even when they appear to cost more.
How beeswax candles purify the air: Beeswax releases negative ions when it burns. Pollen, dust, dirt, pollutants, and any other junk in the air all carry a positive charge, and that is how they can be suspended in the air. The negative ions released from burning beeswax negate the positive charge of air contaminants, and the neutralized ions are sucked back into the burning candle or fall to the ground. Many air purifiers and water filters harness this effective negative ion technology.
Be suspicious of labels simply stating "natural". If the label doesn’t say "100% beeswax" or "pure beeswax", it almost certainly is not.
For your security: Keep wick trimmed to 1/4", do not leave candle unattended or burn in fireproof container, keep out of reach of children.
