Bees-wax candles

Thank you for your article! A caution about using bees wax candles. I've learned, since raising my own bees, that the wax is not only part of their home, it acts to protect them by absorbing poisons and pesticides that they are exposed to. While fresh, organic bees wax can act similarly in your home, you need to choose your candles wisely or you will be burning pesticide laden wax and having the opposite effect!
