Pourquoi choisir des chandelles de cire d'abeilles



Toutes nos chandelles sont faites avec 100% de cire d'abeilles qui provient d'un apiculuteur local et familial. Les chandelles trempées à la main sont faites avec une méthode ancestrale, c'est-à-dire elles sont trempées une à une. Toutes les mèches utilisées sont faites de coton donc sans zinc ni plomb. Les chandelles de cire d'abeilles pures: elles sont non toxiques, non allergiques, ne dégagent aucune fumée et ne coule pas. Elles produisent des ions négatifs qui purifient l'air, à chaque usage, des poussières, des odeurs, des toxines, du pollen et les autres particules en suspendent dans l'air. Elles sont un excellent diffuseur d'huiles essentielles (il vous suffit d'attendre que la chandelle forme un bain de cire pour y ajouter 3 à 4 gouttes au rebord du bain de cire). Finalement, les chandelles de cire d'abeilles pures, elles sont faites à partir d'une substance NATURELLE et non d'un sous-produit du pétrole (les boues grises du pétrole qui sont transformées par des techniques chimiques pour éliminer l'odeur et la couleur). Enfin, à cause de sa chaleur, sa lumière réconfortante et son odeur de miel qui embaume toute la pièce, les chandelles fabriquées avec 100% de cire d'abeille sont un incontournable lors d'un bon repas entre amis, dans un moment de détente ou pour favoriser le sommeil.

Petit guide d'utilisation pour les chandelles trempées:


Why? •Beeswax is the only fuel known to science that releases a negative ion as it burns. Negative ions are proven to eliminate dust, pollen, mould, smoke, food odour and pet dander, as well as airborne germs and bacteria. These ions are nature's way of cleaning up man's pollution. They are a fundamental aspect of our planet's survival and are found in high concentrations in several ecological areas like mountain regions, seashores, waterfalls, and oceans. Electrical storms and rainfall also release a tremendous amount of negative ions. They help alleviate asthma and allergies and invigorate the most basic cells of the human body. Beeswax also promotes healthier and less fitful sleep and dream patterns. Unlike paraffin's "burn off", beeswax reacts more like water and evaporates by the heat of the flame. This is one of the reasons why beeswax doesn't smoke. Keep your wicks trimmed! Trimming the wick to 1/4 inches before lighting will help prevent smoking wicks and your candle will burn evenly. This is essential for a clean, smoke-free burn. This can be eliminated by trimming the wicks every time you burn the candle. Sometimes your candle may develop a "mushroom", which is a carbon buildup on the wick. A wick "mushroom" is a small clump on the tip of the wick; carbon deposits that have built up on the wick and are fed by the burning of the wax and the exchange of oxygen. It is very common for the wicks to develop mushrooms or excessive carbon build-up along the top of the wick. Bending the wick to the side a bit keeps the mushrooming to a minimum. Trim any mushrooms that develop on the wick. BURN CANDLES ONE HOUR FOR EACH INCH OF IT'S DIAMETER. This allows the flame time to melt the wax to the outer edge. Burning less time will cause the candle to core burn down the middle and shorten the burn time. After the first burn of the candle, wait until the candle cools and cut off the "mushroom." The "mushroom" will be greatly minimized and possibly eliminated each time you re-light your candle by keeping the wick trimmed. If your candle is smoking despite trimming the wick and checking for debris in the melt-pool, extinguish the candle immediately. Trim the wick again a little more and allow to cool before re-lighting. The smoking will stop. It is worth remembering that qualitY. Place candles on a heat-resistant surface away from anything that can catch fire. Always keep burning candles in view and never leave unattended. Never burn the last ¼" of "any" candle. Burning to the bottom presents a higher fire hazard (heat can break the container causing your flame to travel). If soot builds up inside the container, clean with a paper towel. Wipe over the cleaned area with a dampened paper towel. Allow the container to dry thoroughly before relighting. If the wick moves off center, use a butter knife to gently push it back to the center. If there is a draft, rotating the candle can help. Candles need to breathe. If you burn a candle in a small room, it is likely to smoke. Consider the size of your room when you burn your new candles. Never "blow out" a candle. Blowing will spray the wax everywhere and cause the candle to smoke. The most effective way to extinguish the flame of a candle is to use a wick dipping candle snuffer. If you don’t own one, the best way to extinguish the candle is to place your forefinger in front of the flame before you blow. This clever trick means that the air will keep the flame from the sides instead of hitting it directly. Never touch or move container while burning or still hot. Extinguish and wait for the candle to cool.
