Beeswax is a natural by product of our honey production and now that we have our Hive door we have been busy hand making different types of candles for people to be able to purchase. Not only do beeswax candles look great but they are also the best candle to burn as they burn cleaner than soy or paraffin candles and help clean the air around them.
Now I’m sure you’re wondering just how could a candle clean the air? Well the pollutants in the air such as pollen, dust, pollutants and other junk all carry a positive charge and that is how they are suspended in the air. When you burn beeswax it produces negative ions which then negate the negative ion of the pollutants and they are then no longer able to be suspended in the air and instead they fall to the ground. Now that all the pollutants have fallen to the ground and you have reduced the amount in the air you can effectively also reduce asthma, allergies and hay fever.
At our Hive Door in the Adelaide Hills we have a couple of different size jar candles as well as a range of rolled beeswax candles that have a lantern affect as they burn down. Beeswax has a long burning time that varies from one shape to another. Come by and check out the range we have to offer. We are also working on new ideas all the time and with the mosquito’s out and about we are working on a solution for that at the moment. We will keep you posted via our Facebook page when it’s ready.
