What is the difference between beeswax candles and ordinary candles?

Home > Blog >

Beeswax is a fatty substance secreted by the wax glands of workers about two weeks old. Honey bees absorb honey, a liquid secreted by a series of changes in the wax secretion organ, the wax gland, which condenses into scales when exposed to air, and then aggregates from these scales to form beeswax. Beeswax is solid at room temperature. The color of beeswax varies with the bee species, processing technology, nectar source and the age of the comb. Its main components are: acids, free fatty acids, free fatty alcohols and carbohydrates. In addition, there are carotenoids, vitamin A, aromatic substances and so on.

Candles are composed of high-grade aliphatic hydrocarbons, and candles originated from torches in primitive times. Primitives put things like fat or wax on bark or wood chips and bundled them together to make torches for lighting. Beeswax, which appeared around the 3rd century BC, may have been the precursor to the candles seen today.

Beeswax candles will release negative ions when burning, which can reduce allergens and essential air. It is very helpful for people with asthma and allergies. If you want to buy pure natural beeswax candles, you can choose us.
