Miel’s unscented, 100% Beeswax Candles, when burned, release negative ions into the air. Negative ions are oxygen atoms with an extra electron and are often found in nature, such as near waterfalls, after a thunderstorm, or in forests. These ions are believed to have a positive impact on air quality. They can attach to and neutralize positively charged particles in the air, such as dust, pollen, and various pollutants. This process can help reduce the number of airborne particles that may contribute to allergies and respiratory issues. Beeswax candles produce minimal soot and do not contain many of the harmful chemicals that paraffin or other types of candles can emit when burned. This can lead to a decrease in indoor air pollution, which is important for individuals with respiratory sensitivities.
