Welcome to Candles by Sunchasers
The benefits of burning beeswax candles
- Are non-toxic, non-allergenic and non-carcinogenic
- Produce negative ions, which clean dust from the air
- Are a source of natural aroma-therapeutic honey essence
- Are beneficial for people who have allergies
- Cost only pennies to per hour to burn
- Burn longer than paraffin
- Give off more heat and light than paraffin
Honey bees are nature's engineers
Beeswax is a remarkable natural substance that scientists do not yet fully understand. It is a by-product of honey made by the youngest honey bees in the colony, who have not yet become foragers for the plant nectar that ultimately becomes honey.
To produce the wax, the young bees gorge themselves on honey and link themselves together, forming walls made of hundreds of bees. After several hours, the wax begins to flow from pockets in the bees. abdomens. Each bee then scrapes off the was with her legs and chews it into soft pellets, which she uses to construct honey comb cells, with walls of wax that average only 1/100th of an inch thick.
Mathematicians have recently proven that the hexagonal pattern found in honeycombs is the most efficient storage structure ever developed by any species, including humans.
Bees in danger
Bees are a critical link in the ecosystem, as they are responsible for the pollination of our crops. In recent years, the massive use of herbicides and insecticides had led to an alarming decline in bee populations. Shrinking bee populations have already caused an annual loss of $6 billion worth of food crops in the U.S. alone . and that number is rising.
By burning beeswax candles, you are supporting our beekeeping industry, ensuring that more crops will be pollinated and more people will be fed. You are also burning candles that contribute to cleaner air by producing negative ions.
When you burn beeswax candles, you benefit yourself and your family as well. Beeswax is the purest of natural waxes and will not produce toxic by-products. Paraffin candles are manufactured from petroleum, and a variety of chemicals are used in the processing. Burning paraffin candles releases toxic irritants into the air, and breathing the fumes is essentially the same as breathing in exhaust fumes from a diesel engine.
