Don’t Run Low on Beeswax
Wow. The world has changed dramatically since we last posted. From our family to yours, we hope you’re healthy and happy, taking time during this forced vacation (for many people) to light your beeswax candles and just be (or bee?).
We want you to know, also, that we’re still open and working away. The bees aren’t resting, after all, so neither are we. In fact, The Beeswax Co. is considered an essential business during the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re proud to be an important part of the U.S. supply chain, filling the need for naturally filtered, 100% pure bulk beeswax for manufactures in various industries including cosmetics, food, and even auto part manufacturing.
And while much remains to be understood about COVID-19 and how it spreads, simply lighting a beeswax candle in your home may do a world of good for you and your health.
That’s because, unlike paraffin, beeswax is known to the clean the air when it burns through a process called ionization. And while no studies have been done that show a direct correlation between beeswax candles and the reduction of airborne virus transmissions, we can tell you that ionized air has been proven to prevent airborne transmission of influenza and other viruses. The prospect is so compelling that negative ion air purifiers are selling out on Amazon as a coronavirus protection measure. Only, these machines that ionize the air can give off ozone as a byproduct, which is a toxic chemical you don’t want in your home.
Plus, who couldn’t use the stress relief of lighting a candle at home right now? We’re hard at work making sure you have convenient access to beeswax candles that are 100% pure and natural. Paraffin and even soy candles do not offer the same respiratory benefits, especially when they’re scented (which introduces an entire host of toxins into the air you breathe).
So whether you want beeswax candles around your home or you need bulk beeswax—perhaps to help you accomplish those DIY projects and crafts you’ve been meaning to tackle—shop online with us. Buying beeswax from The Beeswax Co. doesn’t just support our business, but it also supports a host of local Texas beekeepers who keep our shop filled with honey-scented golden beeswax.
