Why add Coconut Oil to Beeswax in container Candles?
Beeswax burns hotter than other waxes, giving it its signature bright ambient glow and making them last longer. In a container/jar, this can make the jar too hot to touch, so adding a bit of another all natural oil that doesn’t release toxins into the air produces a cooler burning candle.
What’s so fantastic about Beeswax Candles?
The first candles made in ancient Egypt were made from beeswax, and have been found in the ruins of Pompeii as well. Beeswax Candles create a brighter flame and burn much cleaner (producing zero soot), and last much longer than the subsequent fats and by-products that have been used in more modern times. Beeswax produces negative ions when burned, which attach to the positive ions (think pet dander, pollen, mold, toxic chemicals, etc.) causing them to fall to the ground (not floating around in the air for you to breathe in).
