1. I love the smell of beeswax! I keep some close to my bedside because the fragrance is so relaxing.
2. Beeswax candles burn without smoking, as paraffin candles do. Who wants to breathe in a petroleum based product like paraffin, anyways?
3. Beeswax candles burn longer than paraffin candles.
4. Certain religious traditions favor the use of devotional candles cast in beeswax because the rich substance typifies well, the blessed body of Christ, born of the Virgin Mary.
5. It takes a lot of bee work to create beeswax so it is a costly material. I have blended a mixture of 1/2 beeswax & 1/2 soy wax (an all plant product) to cast my candles, allowing me to keep the prices reasonable. You can request your candle to be cast in PURE beeswax if you would prefer, for an extra $8.
