Made from beeswax, these candles are a good way to clean the air in your home! They are especially helpful for those with asthma or allergies as they are effective at removing common allergens from the air like dust, odors, and mold. With a hint of natural sweet honey, your room will naturally smell better. Beeswax candles burn longer since the beeswax is a much harder wax. We were careful to use a naturally made wick... in fact, we found that twisting two wicks together gave the best flame to burn all the fuel of the beeswax. We are addicted to burning these in our home, knowing that they are emitting so much goodness (especially during the winter time when more "germs" are floating around) and are confident that you will be, too!
