    Beeswax candles are among the oldest candles, and they are an excellent air purifier. Beeswax candles, like air purifiers, emit negative ions that neutralise toxins in the air and make them harmless. Beeswax candles not only improve the air quality in your home, but they also burn slowly, so you won't have to replace them as often. Pure beeswax candles, in fact, produce almost no smoke or odour when burned.
