As well as their awesome Sanctuary candle they sent me, Buy Green also sent me one of their smaller Pure Beehive candles. Available in the same nine scents like the larger candle, I got the Clarity candle which includes a “Lime and May Chang citrus tonic”.
I’ve no idea what May Chang is, but it smalls lovely, almost edible. Beeswax is a 100% natural and renewable resource that actually cleans the air by emitting purifying negative ions apparently. This is also entirely beeswax and doesn’t contain any paraffin or soy wax.
According to Buy Green “Most candles are made with paraffin, a petroleum by-product, which is not natural and is unhealthy to burn. To prepare it for candle making, it is chemically bleached and hardened, then artificially scented. Burning paraffin emits harmful, black soot and pollutes the air.”
They even sent me some matches to test it. It’ll burn for 35 hours and looks great in the beehive style glass container. Scent is great and later when summer arrives I might try it outside to see if it wards off the bugs.
It also made me hungry… take a look at the full beeswax candle range here.
