Beeswax - Another Gift From Mother Nature
Posted by Alisia Smith on
The benefits of beeswax has been recognised by humans for more than 9,000 years! It was loved for use in cosmetics, painting and even embalming Egyptian mummies. Egyptians believed beeswax and honey was magical and sacred, and was seen as a gift from the Sun God Ra, made from his tears of joy! Honey and beeswax was valued as a luxury and given as gifts to Pharaohs!
When beeswax candles burn, they clean the air like a brilliant, natural, air purifier. Just like lightning and waterfalls, beeswax candles release anions (negatively charged ions). These anions attach to positive ions - like dust, pollen, mold, odor, toxins, viruses - floating in the air, making them fall to the ground and in this process cleanses the air. Anions have also been scientifically proven to improve mood!
Beeswax is the purest wax and giving the cleanest longest burn, in comparison to other waxes. Beeswax candle flames also have the same bright and warm, spectrum of light as the sun, giving warm bright golden glow to the room. And, another major boon is they carry fragrance beautifully, leaving a lingering scent even after burning!
Beeswax is a gift from Mother Nature that keeps on giving!
