Orb Candles bring pure brilliance to your Shabbat table.
Here’s what’s in them that makes them so special :
100% Pure Canadian Beeswax
The purest and most natural of all waxes. Pure Canadian Beeswax burns cleanly, and actually purifies the air, improving indoor air quality, while giving off a beautiful, warm glow.
Organic Cotton Wicks
Orb wicks are made from 100% certified organic cotton (plus, no wire or lead!), that is safe for your health and our planet.
A 4 to 6 hour burn time
Perfect for your Shabbat table.
Plus as a bonus…
Beeswax is the only substance known to humankind that, when burned, emits a negative ion. Negative ions circulate the room neutralizing the positive static charge that keeps contaminants airborne. When this charge is neutralized, the contaminants – dust, odours, mold, pollen, viruses and other toxins – fall to the floor.
Self Enhancing Properties
It is said that pure beeswax candles improve your sleep, provide relief from allergies and hay fever, and can cause less severe asthma attacks. It can also improve concentration, aid in natural detoxification and add a sense of well being.
Orb Candles are all Canadian made. Toronto-based Borden Communications came up with the idea, developed the concept, designed the branding (and this website!), and of course, is in charge of the ultimate customer service (all while being just another fun hobby on the side of their daily work!).
We believe what’s not in orb candles is equally as important as what’s in them. The inspiration to create Orb Candles came after learning what’s in so many candles on the market. We are committed to not have the following in Orb Candles:
Paraffin is basically the final by-product in the petroleum refining chain – petroleum sludge, if you will. When paraffin candles are burned, the carcinogens fill the room with toxins that coat the walls, furniture and your lungs (think second hand tobacco smoke).
Many conventional candles have wicks with metal cores that contain lead. When lead is burned and inhaled, it is extremely dangerous to our bodies and can result in anything from minor ailments to chronic illnesses.
No Artificial Fragrance
Most generic candles are scented with artificial fragrances which are harmful to our bodies and our planet (in production and in burning).
No Toxic Colourants
Most generic candles are bleached and dyed with toxic colourants (yes, even white ones). These are harmful to our bodies and our planet (in production and in burning).
Harmful pesticides are frequently used to treat hives that directly contaminate much conventional beeswax. In turn, the pesticides are released into the air when the candles are lit. So why risk it?
