Why do we use Beeswax for our Melts?

The Benefits of Using Beeswax

Why do we use beeswax for our products when it is far more expensive than other waxes?

When it comes to fragrant wax products, there are various options available, but beeswax has exceptional qualities that fit in with our ethics. Despite being more expensive than other waxes, the benefits it offers make it a worthwhile investment. In this blog post, we will explore the advantages of using beeswax for wax melts and why it is a our choice.

1. Natural and Sustainable:

Beeswax is a natural by product of honey production, making it an eco-friendly and renewable resource. It is obtained from bees in an ethical and sustainable manner, ensuring minimal impact on the environment. By choosing beeswax melts, you support sustainable beekeeping practices while promoting biodiversity.

2. Clean Burning:

One of the significant advantages of using beeswax for wax melts is its clean-burning nature. Beeswax has a higher melting point compared to other waxes, resulting in a cleaner burn with minimal soot or smoke. This means that your space remains free from harmful pollutants and carcinogens often associated with lower-quality waxes.

3. Air Purifying Properties:

When you burn beeswax, they release negative ions into the air that attract and neutralize positive ions (pollutants). This natural process helps purify the air by reducing allergens, dust particles, and other impurities present in your surroundings. This is a benefit for anyone with allergies.

4. Long-Lasting Fragrance:

Beeswax has excellent scent retention properties, allowing it to hold essential and fragrance oils effectively and release them slowly over time. This results in longer-lasting and more consistent fragrance experiences compared to alternative wax options.

5. Luxurious Aesthetic Appeal:

In addition to its functional benefits, beeswax has a beautiful creamy golden hue that adds an elegant touch to any wax melt product or display arrangement. We never add colourings to our melts, leaving the natural colour of beeswax. The difference in colour in our melts is due to the added fragrance or essential oil.

So, while beeswax may be more expensive than other waxes, its numerous benefits justify its value as an exceptional choice for wax melts enthusiasts. From its natural and sustainable origins to clean burning properties and air-purifying abilities, beeswax offers a superior experience. Embrace the luxury and eco-friendliness of beeswax melts, knowing that you are investing in high-quality products that enhance your space while supporting ethical beekeeping practices.

Not that we are against any other wax of course and we do from time to time make a range of carefully sourced 100% soy wax melts for our vegan friends.
