What is Beeline?
Beeline is a natural alternative to butane lighters and matches. Bee Line is made using only 100% organic hemp string, which is dipped into 100% organic beeswax.
Beeline is a multi-purpose product, made from two ancient renewable resources straight from Mother Nature.
Beeline is used as a flame source, to light the smoking product of your choice. First time users will notice a truer taste in their smoke. Whether you choose to smoke fine cigars or medicinal herbs you will appreciate the positive effects of Beeline vs a butane lighter.
How Beeline works?
In taper candles the wick is the structure which supports the first layers of wax that create the candle. In all candles it acts as a fuel pump, supplying liquefied wax up to the top where all of the action takes place. As a regulator, different size wicks allow different amounts of wax up into the combustion area providing different size flames.
In most cases a smoking wick is a sign that the wick chosen for the candle was too large.
When a wick is too large, it will try to consume more melted wax than the flame can efficiently burn. The unburned material escapes the flame as soot or smoke. If there is more fuel flowing up the wick than can be fully combusted with the available oxygen, smoke is generated which is the visible remnant of the unburned fuel.
The wick works by a principle called capillary action. The fibers are spun into threads, which are bundled and braided together.
The spaces between the fibers, threads, and braids act as capillaries, which cause liquids to be drawn into them. If you place a drop of water in the center of a paper towel you will see that the drop is absorbed and the wet spot expands. Where the expansion occurs is where capillary action is taking place, the candle wicking absorbs wax the same way.
All combustion is the rapid oxidation of a fuel ( in the case of candles a combination of carbon and hydrogen ) that produces carbon dioxide, water vapour, ozone, heat and light. The flame is provided by the user to heat the bees wax causing the bees wax to liquify and vaporize. Once vaporized, the fuel combines with oxygen in the atmosphere to form a flame.
This flame then provides sufficient heat to keep the hemp string burning via a self-sustaining chain of events. The brighter, hotter, yellower part of the flame is the remaining carbon being oxidized to form carbon dioxide.
How to use Beeline?
- First you will need a source of fire, usually a lighter (don't worry you wont be inhaling it this time). Candles are also great for multiple lighting's.
- Take your Beeline (slightly pointing downward) and light the end for 1-2 seconds.
- Hold the burning beeline just above your pipe bowl or in front of your cigarette and light as you would with a typical lighter.
- Take a puff and enjoy the natural taste and health benefits!!
- Extinguish your Beeline safely and then tell your friends so they can enjoy the benefits as well!
Beeline is a natural, organic alternative to butane lighters and matches. Beeline is the "connoisseurs choice" because it retains high quality flavor. Never inhale butane gas and flint directly from a lighter. Skip the stinky chemicals released from matches altogether.
