WARMS YOUR HEART
Like a perfect stocking stuffer, this candle in a heart reminds your Valentine, your kids, your BFF, and/or your mother that the thought of them warms your heart. Scented with cinnamon essential oil, this "red hot" tin is a great little candle. Burns for 5 hours, then after a quick rinse, the heart shaped tin can be used to store love notes, snacks, jewelry... whatever! Buy 1 and pair it with chocolate, Buy 5 and pair with a lot of chocolate!
100% pure beeswax is naturally aromatic, infused with the sweet, subtle scent of honey. Non-toxic and non-allergenic, beeswax candles burn clean—and soot free. While burning, they release negative ions, improving air quality by eliminating pollutants and allergens from the air that we breathe.
WHAT DOES IT REPLACE?
Drippy, fast burning, soot producing, petroleum-based, fragrance-infused candles. Most soy candles are mixed with paraffin, too. In the US, in order for the label to read Soy Candle, it only has to be 51% Soy. Same goes for Beeswax, be sure the label reads 100% pure beeswax. Many companies claiming to produce aromatherapy candles use synthetic fragrances and/or paraffin wax, which is a petroleum by-product. These ingredients emit harmful toxins as they burn and contradict the true essence of aromatherapy.
BORING (BUT USEFUL) STUFF
Beeswax 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. About Negative Ions:
