Beeswax is the only all natural candle wax. It is also a sustainable and renewable resource. Beeswax burns cleaner, brighter, hotter and longer than candles made from any other substance (including vegetable waxes such as soy). It achieves a very efficient and complete burn. When burned properly, beeswax candles are smokeless and drip less. Typically burning up to times longer than paraffin candles,beeswax candles are a better value - even when they appear to cost more.
