Beeswax Candle Benefits
When burnt, beeswax releases negative ions, which helps to remove toxins from the air. Perfect for allergy or asthma sufferers. These dripless beeswax taper candles are also great for the table and candelabras.
Beeswax candles burn cleanly with a soft glow.
Also helps to remove odour from the house, particularly useful for the kitchen.
How to Use Beeswax Candles – Burn Time
Firstly to understand how best to use beeswax candles you need to know that beeswax has a lower melting point than paraffin and soy candles. Therefore beeswax candles are best burnt on a plate or similar heat proof surface rather than in a lantern (as this increases the heat the candle is subject to – speeding up burn time)
Burn time on beeswax candles is generally longer per weight of candle as the wax is more dense.
The wick used for beeswax candles is thicker than the wick in other candles (which allows for a larger flame further from the wax thus keeping the wax cooler). Therefore when it comes to extinguishing beeswax candles this is best done with a candle snuffer and will create less smoke.
