Sunflower Candles has been happily making candles for over 50 years.

Before candles became essential decorative pieces, they were made of the fat of slaughtered animals. Beeswax, paraffin and soy are all advancements on this oily substance. Paraffin, composed of petroleum sludge and refined using carcinogenic chemicals, is the most polluting. The black smoke you see from a paraffin candle is actually diesel exhaust.

Beeswax is the most natural among all candle types, and highly renewable. The candles emit a honey-like scent. When burned, beeswax candles give off negative ions that work as an air purifier, beneficial particularly to people with allergies.

OTHER ADVANTAGES OF MY BEESWAX CANDLES

•Pure and clean-burning flame produces very little smoke. No paraffin, benzene, acrolyn, lead, stearic acid, or other chemicals. So no toxic petrochemical by-products during burning.

•No synthetic fragrance oils to contribute to black soot deposit. Only a natural aroma.

•Only natural plant fiber wicks. No metal-core wicks, some with lead that creates unhealthy air.

•Longer burn than paraffin. Because of a higher melting point, beeswax burns more slowly.

•Virtually dripless when placed away from drafts.

•Brighter flame than paraffin.
