Glowing Sunday Haven With Pure Beeswax Candles.
While Mondays might be the day of the week to pull things together, freshen up and get to work, and Wednesday is famous as being “hump day” as we move closer to the weekend, it is Sunday that, in my opinion, is the most glorious of all of the seven. And when I think about why that is, there is a slower pace built into the very make-up of Sundays that begs even the busiest of us to relax and take things easy. There are lots of ways we can relax at the end of the week – a long walk in the neighbourhood or bush, gardening, checking in with a great movie or TV series, a bath – but for me, I like to say farewell to the past six days with an afternoon of cooking, music and TV surrounded by the warm glow of beeswax candles.
You see, as many of you have noticed, my family and I have been super-duper busy making Ben’s Bees beeswax candles of all shapes and sizes for you in the past few weeks. This is because here at Ben’s Bees we are MAD about beeswax. Beeswax is a truly magical substance with a long history of being valuable around the home. It is a natural wax made by our friend, the honeybee, formed into scales from eight wax-producing glands in the abdominal sections of female workers, who discard the wax in the hive. Hive workers then collect and use the wax to form cells for honey storage and larvae protection. Chemically speaking, beeswax is made mainly of esters of fatty acids and various long-chain alcohols.
Historically, beeswax is considered the first plastic, and as we become increasingly aware of how important it is to embrace natural products in a world full of pollutants and free radicals, beeswax is a winning substitute for nasty chemical-based plastics, release agents, cosmetics and protective coatings. And you really don’t want to be emitting those nasties into the air of your home when you burn candles on your lazy Sunday! That’s why I fill my lounge room, bathroom, porch, kitchen, bedroom with beeswax candles (today, every day) and indulge in the natural, earthy scent and light that would calm even the most frazzled nerves.
And if you can’t decide which candle suits you best, Ben’s Bees Beeswax Candle Collection is a perfect choice. Whether it’s bath time, bedtime, study time, romance time, meditation time or just everyday chill-out time, this collection will help you relax, focus and unwind. Made using high-quality natural beeswax, these beautifully crafted candles have a long burn time, don’t drip, emit a subtle earthy fragrance, and have been said to neutralise pollutants in the air, making them the perfect gift for yourself or someone special. So light up some beeswax candles, keep it simple and natural, and say farewell to the week that has been.
