20lbs of Beeswax
Our 20-pound of pure beeswax is ideal for whatever project you have in mind. Beeswax is a valuable ingredient in any household looking to make their own beauty and cleaning products. This well sized block is also frequently purchased to make beeswax candles. The wax, filtered to remove both honey and pollen, is an eco-friendly alternative to paraffin. Pure beeswax candles are able to burn longer and cleaner than other types of candles. When melting beeswax for projects please avoid doing so over an open flame. Beeswax is highly flammable. At our farm we heat it in a double boiler over an electric flame. The double boiler also helps to prevent the wax from overheating, which can darken the final product. As with all natural beeswax, each batch harvested fluctuates in color from pale yellow to dark amber, and has a natural mild scent reminiscent of honey.
