Beeswax Candle Brilliance: Air Purifiers!
When you are at the ocean, or on top of a mountain, and you get that uplifted feeling, it is because the air is rich in negative ions. Compare that to being in a traffic jam and hardly being able to breathe because of all the exhaust in the air. The pollution experience is when the air is full of positive ions. Odd that the positive means bad and the negative means good, but that is the way it is.
Beeswax candles give OFF negative ions, the good ions. Negative ions clean the air. Negative ions remove the pollution and allergens from positive ions, allowing them to drop harmlessly to the ground.
Best of all, beeswax candles offer a honey scent, and lend a honey hue to the room.
