Why Beeswax Candles are the healthiest choice? Beeswax Candles are said to reduce allergies, asthma and hay fever by naturally releasing negative ions into the air when burned (which are also found around a waterfall, beach, or rainforest). Some people burn beeswax candles in rooms where allergic kids sleep or play, and say they have no allergic symptoms whilst in this space.
Pollen, dust, dirt, pollutants and other particulates in the air all carry a positive charge and that is how they are suspended in the air. The negative ions released from burning beeswax negate the positive charge of air contaminants and the neutralised ions are sucked back into the burning candle or fall to the ground. Many air purifiers and water filters utilise this negative ion technology.
Unlike like soy or paraffin wax candles, which compromise indoor air quality, beeswax candles release no toxins or chemicals in the air as they contain no artificial fragrances or additives.
