Naked candles contain only pure white and yellow beeswax and a wee bit of organic coconut oil. The natural beeswax scent is so sweet!
The burn time for beeswax candles is longer than any other type of wax. Beeswax candles are said to produce negative ions when burned, and those ions help to neutralize pollutants in the air. They can help to eliminate dust, odors, and mold in the atmosphere which may ease allergy and asthma symptoms and improve the air for anyone nearby.
There are a few things that you want to do in order to ensure you get the longest burn time on your candles. The initial burn should be for a period of between 1 and 2 hours. Trim the wick down to between 1/8 and 1/4 inch after each time you burn the candle. Also, keep your candle out of windy areas and as a general rule, burn your candle for a minimum of 1 hour and a maximum of 4 hours each time.
Estimated burn times by size are as follows:
- 4 ounce 15-18 hours
- 8 ounce 35-40 hours
- 12 ounce 60+ hours
