There is simply so much to know about beeswax.
Rare and expensive as bees must fly 150,000 miles just to secrete one pound of wax. For every 100 pounds of honey harvested, beekeepers obtain about 1-2 pounds of beeswax.
Beeswax is 100% natural and chemical free. For candles it is clean burning, non toxic to you and your pets. Beeswax has the highest burn point of any wax, it burns brighter and lasts longer. It will not leave a soot residue on your walls. Virtually drip less when placed on a level surface.
Beeswax is hypoallergenic and known to benefit to those with environmental allergies, lung sensitivities, and asthma. Helps air purification during cold and flu season. The only candle that emits negative ions to purify, improve air quality, and invigorate the body.
Prized in cosmetics as it is rich in Vitamin A beeswax can help heal and seal the skin and makes a great non-toxic base for many natural body products. Our wax is locally harvested and minimally processed to retain all of the amazing benefits that are in pure beeswax from the honey, pollen and propolis residues.
The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of beeswax make it a good ally when it comes to treating acne too. Its combo of both protective, restorative, and antiseptic properties prevent further infections, but also soothe your skin and slow down the progression of acne. Additionally, beeswax contains a lot of Vitamin A, which has restorative effects on the skin and speeds up its regeneration processes. Vitamin A is also beneficial for making the skin softer and more flexible, which in turn has the added effect of making scars less prominent. Heals and restores, makes a great base for skincare, helps eczema and psoriasis.
