I have worked with beeswax in my products (creams, lip balms, solid perfumes) for over 15 years. It is such a nice medium that is good for the skin, and also helps the reasonable shelf stability of the products.
It is secreted by the bees’ abdominal organs, 8 glands that worker bees have. It takes a little over a 1000 of those pieces to make 1 gram of beeswax.
What is it?
Beeswax is primarily a wax ester, which combines ester of a fatty acid and fatty alcohol. Beeswax is edible, and safe.
It can range in color from lighter to darker yellow, and has a divine sweet floral smell of honey. I have seen products that claim that it is 100% pure beeswax, and they smell nothing like real beeswax, so be aware of that possibility.
Tea light candles
I am excited to finally be able to offer natural safe and healthy candles, made with 100% pure beeswax with no extra additives or scents.
The beeswax candles burn longer, cleaner and so good for the air! The burning process actually infuses it with negatively charged ions, and can improve the air quality substantially. People have reported improved respiratory conditions while using the beeswax candles.
Regular candles are made with petroleum wax and sometimes synthetic fragrances. They deposit burn by products, that actually pollute the air and load the liver, and overtime can contribute to body’s toxicity.
These candles are made with natural cotton wick, and do not use any plastic parts.
How to use beeswax candles
The tea light candles can be placed in water, salt, sand, rice, candle holder.
Please always watch when the candle is in use, and do not leave it unattended.
