is one of nature's most perfect and pure products and has been used since ancient times (since the 6th century, to be exact) for candles, beauty, health, and other uses around the home. It is created by honeybees to build the comb structures within their hives. The Homey Hippies use locally sourced organic beeswax in our signature products. We believe the products you use everyday should benefit your health and beeswax is one of the most beneficial ingredients on the planet.
•Beeswax is a natural stress reliever. Burning it as a candle gives off the same spectrum of light emitted from the sun, so it's perfect for chasing away the rainy day blues.
•Unlike paraffin candles which give off soot that coats your walls and lungs, beeswax is naturally smokeless. And instead of the artificial fragrances used in many candles on the market, you will enjoy a subtle honey scent and cleaner air from your beeswax candle.
•Beeswax is made up of negative ions. When burned, these charged molecules help purify your air by reducing the amount of dust, dander, and other allergens and pollutants lingering in the environment. (Those who suffer from asthma or allergies can greatly benefit from this property of beeswax candles.)
•Additionally, beeswax can be used to treat skin conditions, as a moisturizer, as an anti-inflammatory, for liver protection, and lowering cholesterol.
•Studies also show that beeswax stimulates the pituitary gland and increases oxygen in the brain, increasing intuition, creativity, and heightening dream activity.
•By supporting beeswax candle makers, you are supporting sustainable beekeeping. We rely on honeybees to pollinate roughly 1/3 of all of the crops, worldwide, that create our food, spices, medicines, and clothes.
