Bougee Girl Candles Are 50% Pure Beeswax and 50% Pure Coconut wax! Beeswax candles are some of the oldest candles in history. Besides being all-natural, they possess several health benefits. They are reported to improve allergy and asthma symptoms. Like air purifiers, beeswax candles release negative ions that neutralize the particles from air pollutants, rendering them harmless.
They’re far superior in terms of health compared to paraffin candles. People who are sensitive to fragrances often prefer light-scented beeswax to overly perfumed paraffin candles. The problem with paraffin wax lies in its origin. It’s a by-product of petroleum refining and is actually made from the sludge at the bottom of crude oil barrels.
Beeswax emits negative ions much like some electric air purifiers do. Negative ions actually clear air of mold spores, pollen, dander, odors, germs, dust and other nasty particles. Most of these are high in positively charged particles, and in the atomic world, opposites attract.
When the negative ions grab hold of the nasty particles, they become too heavy to remain airborne. So they drop to the floor other other surfaces where, you guessed it, we can clean them right up with a good vacuum or dust cloth.
Several other benefits of negative ions have been noted over the years from various studies. Here are a few:
Increases sense of well-being and mental clarity. Often called a natural anti-depressant, especially for those with Seasonal Affective Disorder.
Improves breathing rate, decreases blood pressure and relieves tension. There’s some evidence that they may combat free radicals in your body too.
Helps you sleep better by normalizing serotonin in the brain.
Reduces headaches and other sickness. One study found that installing negative ion air cleaners in a high-tech work environment reduced employee reports of headaches and illness by 78%.!!
