100% pure beeswax is organic and natural and candles made from it burn clean and have their own natural honey/floral scent, even when not burning. Unlike paraffin candles, they do not contain any additives, synthetic chemicals or leave behind black soot from smoke when they are burned.

Also, make sure the candles don’t have a metal wire in the wick which could contain lead.
