Candle Light Therapy- The Beeswax Way

An added health benefit is that burning pure beeswax candles releases negative ions into the air. These can then bind with toxins and help purify the air you breath. Some air purifiers and water filters harness this effective negative ion technology.

On the other hand, beware of scented candles that do not burn clean. Candles made with paraffin, a petroleum product, emit harmful gases and sediments into your breathing air. They offer a more sinister scent or atmosphere to a room filling it with toxins such as toluene, benzene, styrene and formaldehyde, all known to be carcinogens. Add to this the chemicals present in artificial dyes and synthetic fragrances and one will be basking in a veritable chemical soup that can invariably lead to respiratory irritation at the very least.

With this knowledge in my back pocket, my candle choice will always be 100% pure beeswax. I also consider them a high quality gift when thinking of friends and family.

Lit candles create an inviting atmosphere and present a luxurious feel to a room. They delineate a space, your space. The soft light grounds and relaxes. Focusing on the flame will invite you into meditation. The subtle light impacts your mood and sense of wellbeing.

Lighting a candle sets the intention to RELAX and enters into my realm of wellness tools.

However, being someone who is highly sensitive to synthetic fragrances and chemicals , I have to choose my candles wisely.  I have found my source.

Luisa of LVF Creations creatively sculpts shapes from layered sheets of 100% pure beeswax into bright burning candles. Her creativity and passion result in bougies that are not only resplendent, but also safe.  Shapes are simple and pure, inspired by special events and themes, or simply derived from the intrinsic need to relax. Candle colours are made from natural plant dies. Wicks are 100% cotton. Depending on the size and shape, an LVF Creations candle can burn up to six hours, clean and drip free. They have their own distinctive natural honey aroma.
