Coffee Infused Beeswax Candle

Our coffee infused beeswax candles use 100% pure beeswax (no fillers or soy wax) and fresh ground coffee to create a beautiful and unique finished product.  We 'steep' the coffee in the melted wax and the pour the mixture directly into a 4oz quilted mason jar with the wick.   Each candle looks a little bit different!  Try some today!  We can add these into gift boxes so that you have another type of product to add with your soaps, jams and lip balms.  We developed this product at the request of one of the coffee roasters we make soaps for.  This product is one more way that you can use natural beeswax in your life instead of petroleum based products such as paraffin wax.

Research on the benefits of beeswax candles in your home:

Beeswax candles actually clean the air when they burn. How is this possible?  Beeswax releases negative ions when it burns. Pollen, dust, dirt, pollutants, and any other junk in the air all carry a positive charge, and that is how they can be suspended in the air. The negative ions released from burning beeswax negate the positive charge of air contaminants, and the neutralized ions are sucked back into the burning candle or fall to the ground. Many air purifiers and water filters harness this effective negative ion technology.  In the Middle Ages, churches employed beekeepers on the staff solely for the purpose of producing candles, since the smoke from the candle does not create soot that would stain the walls or religious art.

Here is some research on the negative effect of paraffin candles in your home:

“Regular candles,” i.e. that bag of tealights you can buy for five bucks, are made from paraffin. As the name implies, paraffin candles are made from paraffin wax, a by-product of petroleum refining. The result? A highly toxic (and environmentally unfriendly) product that literally poisons the air you breathe.

Paraffin wax starts as the sludge at the bottom of the barrel of crude oit. Even asphalt is extracted before paraffin in the refining process! The black sludge, already filled with numerous toxins, undergoes bleaching and treatment by carcinogens benzene and/or toulene.

And the chemicals don’t stop there. Chemists mix in toxic concoctions of colors and fragrances to make this waste product marketable and appealing. The final result is a innocent looking candle which releases seven documented toxins –two of which are carcinogenic–when it burns.

And toxins aren’t the only problem with burning paraffin candles. Over time, repeatedly burning paraffin candles leaves black soot stains on walls, ceilings, furniture, and drapery. The microscopic soot particles at fault for the cosmetic damage also cause serious health problems. These tiny particles are easily inhaled and get trapped in the deepest part of the lungs, which may cause respiratory irritation.
