Why Beeswax is Better
What's the buzz behind our candles?
People often ask us why we're committed to using all-natural ingredients in our candles. Simply stated, these ingredients are better. Better for you, me and the environment. Our candles are the perfect blend of beeswax and soy wax, vegetable wax derived from soybean oil, infused with a high concentration of Citronella, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Peppermint and Cedarwood. Plant-based ingredients that burn clean, naturally. When you enjoy a Murphy's Naturals candle, you're not only getting an all-natural and pleasant bite-free environment, but you're also helping the planet and those around you.
Why use beeswax?
We use beeswax in our products because it offers a handful of healthy benefits. We left out all the ingredients we don’t want, so you won’t find D.E.E.T. or petroleum in our candles. Our sustainable formulation of these key plant based ingredients burns clean, naturally. When heated, beeswax releases negative ions that help purify the air by neutralizing the toxins. Beeswax also has natural healing agencies -- aromatherapy, anti-inflammatory properties, & natural moisturizer.
Where is Murphy's Naturals beeswax sourced from?
Thanks to Bee Downtown, a North Carolina based company using businesses in cities like Raleigh and Durham to help save honey bee populations, Murphy's Naturals utilizes beeswax from it's own rooftop honey bee hives and neighboring hives in it's soy and beeswax candles.
