Beeswax candles are a great way to bring health into your home.
All Hexton Bee Company beeswax candles are made from 100% pure beeswax from our own sustainably managed hives. They are hand poured in small batches and finished with a cotton wick that contains no lead or metals.
Beeswax candles burn brighter and cleaner than any other wax candles and burn up to 3 times longer! This is because beeswax has a high melting point, meaning they are dripless in a draft free area.
Beeswax is also naturally scented by the nectar from many different flowers that are visited by the bees giving off a subtle honey aroma.
It is the purest and most natural of all waxes (including vegetable waxes), and has the least amount of processing and no additives!
The wax is untreated and uncolored and contains no additives or artificial fragances - just as nature intended. We do not use any antibiotics in our beehives and have our bees are among the most disease free bees in the world. You can be assured there is no antibiotic residues in this beeswax.
Beeswax candles emit negative ions into the air. These bond with toxins in your home (such as dust, dirt, toxins which carry a positive charge) and help to clean the air, purifying it of dust, odours, pollens, toxins & mould as well as elevating your mood. Not only are these candles so much better than their toxic alternatives, they also help to remove other toxins from our environment. They can be a great benefit for anyone with allergies or asthma.
Simply burn for 2 - 3 hours each night.
Beeswax is the only fully natural wax available which is essentially a by-product of honey making. The bees use the wax to make cells which are then filled with honey. Once the honey has ripened, the cells a capped with a fresh layer of wax. We extract the honey ourselves and then separate the wax and honey using centrifugal force. The remaining wax is then melted and filtered before being made into candles.
We do not treat the wax in any way so it still contains all of the natural benefits. It is a renewable and completely sustainable resource. This is completely unlike paraffin candles which is a by-product of petroleum and emits toxins and known carcinogens into the air when burned.
A point to note: Don't be fooled by candles that don't state they are 100% beeswax. You only need 51% beeswax in a candle to make this claim. Go for 100% pure beeswax to gain the full benefit of beeswax candles.
