These candles are 100% beeswax collected from Miel Rebel Honey hives. Beeswax candles are known to be air purifiers by releasing negative ions that trap dust and allergens from the air. The beeswax comes from the wax cappings that the bees use to seal in the honey. The wax is melted and filtered of debris, at times leaving behind some small particles of propolis, a resin from the sap of trees that bees collect for its antifungal properties. The propolis lends a delicate scent to the beeswax.
