Natural Beeswax emits negative ions when burned or diffused which are scientifically proven to clean your air of dust, mold and pollen, pet dander, smoke, odors and even bacteria and viruses. Beeswax burns 2 to 3 times longer than your regular paraffin candle and emits no harmful substances into your air. That is why so many churches use beeswax candles as to not harm the old artwork and historic artifacts inside the buildings and hanging on the walls.
People can melt down beeswax to make balms and salves. Many people make their own candles as well!
