Big Dipper Wax Works


100% beeswax candle is tealight form. 

Beeswax is a product of the sustainable industry of beekeeping, making beeswax a sustainable and renewable resource.

Beeswax is naturally aromatic, infused with the sweet, subtle scent of honey. Nontoxic and non-allergenic, beeswax candles burn clean and soot free. While burning, they release negative ions. These negative ions improve air quality by eliminating pollutants and allergens from the air that we breathe.

The high melting and burning temperature of beeswax translates into exceptionally long burn times. While burning, their golden flames glow with the same energy and spectrum of light as the sun.

Each tealight has a burn time of approximately 5 hours. Made in Seattle. 100% cotton wick. Pack includes 6 tealights.

  • Beeswax candles have been the choice of candle connoisseurs throughout the ages. They are a gift from nature that embodies a simple and healthy state of being.

    Beeswax is 100% natural and a renewable resource that actually cleans the air by emitting purifying negative ions.

    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.

    Beeswax candles are naturally dripless and smokeless, and they tend to have a longer burn time than candles made from other waxes.

    Beeswax also burns clean and purifies the air at the same time! In addition to supporting sustainable beekeeping, the consumption of beeswax candles is also good for the air we breathe. Unlike paraffin candles, which are made with a petroleum-based wax, beeswax candles have a completely clean non-toxic burn and produce negative ions when burning.

     

    Negative Ions

    These charged molecules are created when air molecules break apart because of sunlight, radiation, or the movement of air and water. The number of negative ions in an environment can vary greatly depending on the environment. For example, Yosemite Falls has approximately 100,000 negative ions per cubic centimeter as opposed to anywhere from a hundred to none in the average office or home.

     

    Positive in a variety of ways:

    Negative ions relieve stress, boost energy and alertness levels, reduce the amount of dust mites and dander in the air, and they may help protect against airborne germs by attaching to positively charged ions that are holding other contaminants airborne.

     

    How do negative ions work?

    It is unknown exactly why negative ions affect the body in such a positive manner. Theories about how they work include:

    • They cause a biochemical reaction that increases serotonin levels
    • They increase the flow of oxygen to the brain
    • They stimulate the pituitary gland, which regulates the endocrine glands including the adrenal and thyroid glands
