A candle is the best way to relax. The warm, golden glow, the soft, flickering shadows, the wonderful aromas
Burning candles is a great way to relax, create a sense of calm, and add a pleasant scent to the environment. Your average candle is made from petroleum and scented using chemicals. The candle emits soot when it burns. This is bad for your respiratory system and the environment.
Natural beeswax or soy wax candles can make it easier to breathe. Natural candles are more effective than paraffin wax-based alternatives because they purify the air and use renewable resources. Continue reading to learn more about why natural is the best choice today.
We’ve used a lot of candles in preparation for the Candle Issue. Our favorites are without a doubt those made with natural ingredients. Don’t delay if you haven’t yet switched to natural candles. Natural candles offer so many benefits; you won’t want to go back.
Natural candle making are better than synthetic candles.
They don’t contain unsavory chemicals
Natural candles are safe and don’t expose you to potentially hazardous chemicals.
Traditional paraffin wax is made from petroleum. It can be contaminated with toxins, carcinogens, and other air pollutants. It is possible to avoid exposure by using organic waxes such as beeswax or soy wax.
Wicks made of natural materials like cotton, hemp, and wood are better than metal-cored ones, which can cause toxic reactions or even lead traces in extreme cases.
They burn longer
Natural waxes last longer because they have a lower melting temperature. This means that you will get more value for your money and be able to enjoy your candles for longer.
They produce less soot
Natural candles burn cleaner. Black soot won’t gather on candles or creep onto walls as much.
Natural wax is biodegradable
Natural wax is biodegradable so spills can be cleaned easily and empty containers of candles can be reused.
Help support small and local businesses
Natural candles are becoming more accessible in certain stores, but there are still many artisans who make all-natural candles. Support them instead of the big-box stores.
Cleaner burning – Breathe easy
Soy wax candles and beeswax candles provide a clean burning experience. They are almost carbon neutral and produce very little soot. Avoid inhaling soot as it can cause respiratory problems and leave marks on walls and furniture. The black soot from paraffin candles can often collect on the jars, which is evidence that CO2 has been released into the environment.
Great for asthma and allergies – air purifying
After a thunderstorm, you will notice a freshening scent in the air. Because lightning produces negative ions. These ions attach to pollutants in the atmosphere and then become heavier and fall to the ground. The same air cleaning effect can be achieved by burning pure beeswax candles at home. The natural negative ions from beeswax candles remove dirt, dust, odors, and other pollutants from your air, making it cleaner and less irritating to the respiratory system.
Longer Lasting – better value for money
Soy wax candles and natural beeswax candles have a longer burning time, which makes them more durable. While you may be more expensive for a natural candle at first, the longer-lasting burn will mean that you won’t need to replace them as often. This and the other benefits mean you get a lot more burn for your money.
Better Scent – Natural and Delicious
Beeswax Candles don’t have any added fragrances and are naturally scented. Because soy wax candles burn at a lower temperature, they release their fragrance faster than other candles. The result is a faster release of the fragrance and a longer burn time. This makes for a more pleasant dispersion.
It doesn’t have to be environmentally friendly.
The Earth’s cost
Beeswax candles and soy candles are both popular choices for eco-conscious consumers. They are not made from petroleum and are made from sustainable resources. Another benefit is that beeswax candles are less likely to drip, making them safer and cleaner for the home. Any mishaps with soy wax candles can be quickly and easily fixed with warm soapy warmers. You won’t need to take a knife to the varnished table again!
