Bee Coco Candle Beeswax Facts

There's are a lot of buzz words around bees these days and we are here to deliver facts.

Bee Coco Candle handpours unscented beeswax lip balms, hand balm, tealights and melts using natural, sustainable, 100% natural beeswax from Kane County, IL. We also teamed up with an amazing hand-dipped beeswax candle company from Montrose, CO to bring you votives, tapers, pillars and 3-wick jars.

Did you know that beeswax candles have health benefits? Made from the caps of bee honeycombs, beeswax candles burn clean, are very long-burning, and give off a pleasant natural fragrance as they burn. Beeswax candles release negative ions which help clean the air in a room. They are also non-allergenic and can help soothe the symptoms of hay fever, asthma and allergy sufferers. Beeswax is also derived from a sustainable natural source, unlike paraffin.

Although more expensive than paraffin or soy, beeswax candles last up to three times longer. Pure beeswax candles have a golden to amber color. Beeswax candles that are ivory colored typically have less of a natural honey scent. Be wary of candles labeled blended beeswax since these will often contain paraffin; look instead for the 100 percent beeswax label.
