Do you love to burn candles around the house? I do! I delight in the warmth and comforting ambiance candles give a room. But I prefer beeswax candles over any other type! The reasons being they let off a light sweet fragrance that's not too overpowering and they also are all natural. Unfortunately most candles you buy in the store contain all sort of interesting chemicals that I don't want my family exposed to.
While on my search for beeswax candles I found the company Honey Candles. After talking back and forth they offered to let me review a set of their new line of Essential Tins which are their 100% beeswax candles mixed with pure essential oils to scent your home naturally! They have several different scents and they all sounded so great I had a hard time choosing. I finally narrowed it down to their Lavender, Mulled Spice, and the Kootenay Forest scents.
Honey Candles is a small business owned by Roy and Leah Honkanen who live in Canada. For over 15 years they have focused on creating bee-friendly, green, healthy and natural beeswax candles and incense.
They have a wonderful site that is not only beautiful but also set up very nice so that it is easy to navigate. They have tons of information on beeswax candles and how to care for them that you can find HERE. They carry dozens of types of candles in not only the natural beeswax color but also many other colors as well.
Some of the reasons I prefer Honey Candles 100% beeswax candles over other candle types is
The candles from Honey Candles are bee friendly, eco friendly, and renewable. Something else I learned is that beeswax candles can actually help clean your air! Beeswax candles have long been known for their air purifying effects. Unlike soy and paraffin candles, 100% pure beeswax beeswax create negative ions when burning, creating a similar effect as houseplants. Negative ions neutralize bad positive ions such as allergens, dust and air borne toxins thus improving air quality.
When I received my candles I was excited to try them. I lit them on different nights and the light sweet honey scent along with their different perfumes filled the air. I loved all four scents equally. They are fresh and clean without being cloying or overpowering. I especially liked the Kootenay Forest. I did notice that when I burn my candles after dinner it helps to clear any food smells which I like. Also the glow they let off is lovely. They are very bright I noticed, compared to standard tins and I feel so good knowing that they are not letting off toxic chemicals into my home.
The only drawback is that beeswax candles are more expensive than what you would buy in places like Wal-Mart. However I have looked through candle catalogues and they run about the same as Honey Candles but still contain all the chemicals I try to avoid.
Honey Candles would make a great gift for Mothers Day, birthdays, housewarmings, or hostess gifts. They are the highest quality candles I have ever used and are eco responsible at the same time. I would recommend them to anyone. You can see the care and commitment Roy and Leah Honkanen have put into their products.
