What are the benefits of burning beeswax candles?

Apart from being natural, beeswax candles are highly recommended for a number of healthy benefits. These include;

Light – the light from beeswax candles is the brightest but still pure that is almost as bright as the light from the sun. In case you are using a beeswax candle as light, it will help reduce headaches and any straining on your eyes.
Relaxing – candles have a relaxing effect that can help in meditation and relieving stress. Beeswax candles have an added advantage of this, thanks to the aromatic natural, sweet and subtle honey scent they possess. 
Low toxic level – beeswax is a natural and renewable product that has a clean burn with no soot or release of carcinogens. Some candles, especially candles made from paraffin wax, will release soot and carcinogens, which is toxic. 

Do beeswax candles really clean the air?

Here is how beeswax candles help clean the air: When burning, beeswax candles release negative ions in the air. The air is full of positive ions made of dust, pollen, germs, odours, dander, and mould, among others. If you remember your science lessons, positive and negative ions attract. So, the negative ions released by a burning beeswax candle will attract the positive ions in the air, which are pollutants. When these 2 types of ions merge, the positive ions become heavier and cannot stay in the air. Due to this, they will drop down to the surfaces or ground, thus purifying the air you breathe.
