Lighting a candle will never be the same again. Did you know that when you light scented candles in your homes, you are either adding pollutants or purifying the air? And you are either adding heavy harmful chemicals to your family’s breathing space or helping their lungs?
If it’s a paraffin candle, it releases positively charged ions that stay in the air and become pollutants. And it’s a danger to your family’s health. Soy candles are better alternative, but since most soy products nowadays are from GMO, you wouldn’t want to use this either. It is important to know your sources. In this day and age of just buying-and-selling through the internet, it is important that you go the extra mile to verify your sources. The healthiest candle you can light in your homes would be candles made from real, organic or natural BEESWAX. When lighted, it releases negatively charged ions that absorb air pollutants and purify the air. If you want a scented candle, you can add organic or natural or food grade essential oils. Nothing synthetic please specially perfumes as these have been proven to harm our health.
Everything we put in our homes, either gives and extends life to our love ones, or poisons and kills them gradually. These are things many of us, including me, are now ignorant of, because fast food, fast service, fast whatever has been our new normal. We’ve forgotten how to make and create things. We are too busy to make and create.
Yesterday, we learned how to make sustainable beeswax candles and balms. Thank you little BEES! I will be looking at you with fresh eyes and utmost appreciation from now on!
We tasted locally harvested bees from Siera Madre, Mount Banahaw, and other parts of the Philippines. All of them tastes so much different. Colors and consistency also differs. Do you know that honey collected from different parts of the Philippines, and in different seasons, would vary in colors, consistencies, potency, nutrients, and vitamins? Respect our nature as it is really the only one (aside from God) that can heal us.
All the candles and balms I made on this Create Camp, were carefully put together with my family’s well-being in mind. I made a medicated balm that would help my husband battle fatigue, dizziness, etc. Made a whipped body cream that will be perfect for massages – pure goodness in it! Made lip balms also (but my little Izzy is sad that it’s not pink hehe). Made 100% beeswax candles, and 50/50 beeswax with VCO oil candles and so many more. As soon as I get home, I lighted all of them to purify our air
