7 Reasons you Should Switch to Beeswax Candles
Beeswax Candles are adored for their gorgeous natural look but there are numerous reasons why they are the preferred candle of choice, especially over Paraffin Candles. We've summarised the top 7 reasons for you!
1. 100% Natural
Millbee’s Beeswax Candles are 100% natural made from pure Irish Beeswax. They are naturally chemical and paraffin free.

2. Purifies the Air
Beeswax Candles are believed to release negative ions into the air that purifies by causing airborne particles such as dust, toxins and even odours to fall to the ground via static electricity. This appears to be the reason why Asthma or Allergy sufferers find Beeswax Candles non irritating. On the contrary, reports in the past have shown that Paraffin Candles are an ‘unrecognized source of exposure to indoor air pollution, including the known human carcinogens’.
3. Burns Cleaner
When burned properly (keeping wick trimmed and away from drafty areas) beeswax candles burn clean with hardly any soot or black smoke emission. So your walls won’t stain black which can be very hard to remove!
All organic compounds when burned will produce some soot due to incomplete combustion. Beeswax burns hotter than paraffin wax and therefore will have less soot.
4. Warm Glow
Beeswax Candles burn brighter with a beautiful warm glow. They emit a natural light of the same light spectrum as the sun. This helps create the perfect ambience for dining or for a quiet moment of meditation, reading or while you’re in the bath!
Beeswax Candles don’t cause any harm to your pets! Many scented candles with synthetic fragrances irritate cats and dogs as they release toxins into the air which are inhaled by pets and humans! Small animals are more sensitive in general to these toxins. Furthermore, Millbee only uses 100% natural unbleached cotton wicks.
6. Naturally Scented
Beeswax candles have a gorgeous natural subtle honey scent that makes them ideal for a dinner setting as they don’t emit a strong scent or a synthetic fragrance that would compete with the smell of food.
Beeswax is the least processed natural candle wax that is also 100% biodegradable. Paraffin candles burn much quicker than Beeswax and are considerably less sustainable.
