Beehive Skep Candle Set of 2
Scented candles contain paraffin wax, derived from petroleum, coal or shale oil that when burned, relases toxic compounds into the air. Paraffin candles also produce a fair bit of soot which can be inhaled when it is airbourne. When scented candles are burned they give off tiny particles so small that they can get into the bloodstream and have been associated with both short and long term health problems, including asthma and cardiovascular disease. So it is far better to opt for natural candles made from renewable resources.
Beeswax candles can help clean the air while they burn as they are said to release negative ions which clears pollen, mild spores, bacteria and viruses. They also tend to burn for longer than soy and paraffin candles.
We love these 100% pure bees wax candles from Oakdale Bees which emulates the same hue as sunlight which is proven to make us feel happier and there are no toxic nasties in these gorgeous candles which can be found in cheaper candles.
