Beeswax 14-Day Candles

The best 14-day candles are made of beeswax, a natural, raw organic wax made by honey bees inside their hive. When the beeswax is created, it almost unadulterated white, but as it gets combined with propolis and pollen from the honey bees, it becomes more golden or tan. Beeswax can range in color from almost white to darkish brown, however, it is typically shades of yellow, but it is actually contingent on the cleanliness and kind of flowers the bees have visited. For instance, when bees gather nectar from mainly goldenrod, the wax will be golden yellow, while nectar from buckwheat flowers will result in a murkier wax. This stands to reason since  honey from buckwheat flowers has a deep, dark brown color.

100% pure beeswax candles burn clean and have a natural honey/floral scent even when not burning. Unlike paraffin candles, they do not contain any additives, synthetic chemicals or leave behind black soot from smoke when they are burned.

Burning beeswax candles assist to purify the air since they produce negative ions which attract positive charged particles like mold spores, pollen, dander, odors, germs, dust and other contaminates. When the negative ions combine with the positive particles, they become too heavy to linger in the air so they drop to the floor other surfaces where they can be cleaned up with a dust cloth or a vacuum cleaner.

When purchasing beeswax candles, make sure that you buy it from a trustworthy source, since there are many dishonest purveyors who sell so named “beeswax candles” that have as little as 5% of beeswax if any at all. If you are obtaining 100% pure beeswax candles, that is what your candles should be made of.
