Beeswax is a natural secretion originating from the wax glands located on the abdomens of worker bees. Beeswax is used by the bees to construct honeycombs, in which they store pollen and surplus honey for the winter, and in which they raise their brood. When beekeepers extract honey, they cut off the wax caps from each honeycomb cell with an uncapping knife, and thereby collect the beeswax. The color of beeswax can vary from white to brownish, but most often it's a shade of yellow. It depends on the purity, region, and type of flowers gathered by the bees.
Our beeswax pellets have a wonderful smell and texture. They're perfect for making handmade soaps, lipsticks, balms, polishes, and creams. These beeswax pellets are pure, natural and food grade. They come from the hives of bees that have mainly fed on flowers, hence they have a pleasant color and smell. The result is finished cosmetic products that are fragrant and sweet.
Beeswax has a wide variety of uses that don't just include cosmetics. It can be used in art and craft projects like candle-making, it can be used to coat tools to prevent rust, it can be used to strengthen thread for sewing, and it can be used to fix sticking drawers. Test some out today!
