It makes wonderful lip balms, hand lotions, hand creams, moisturisers, in cosmetics, wood finishes, waxes, leather polishes; waterproofing products, and dental moulds.
Beeswax is produced by the worker honeybees. The wax is secreted from wax glands on the underside of the bee’s abdomen and is moulded into six-sided cells which are filled with honey, once the cells are full they are then capped with more wax. The beeswax is collected during honey production, it contains some honey, bee parts, and other impurities, and therefore must be melted and filtered or strained. Our wax is heated and filtered through fine cloth and a sieve to remove impurities, so that we are left with a golden yellow wax.
It can be used to make a range of items from candles, household waxes to various cosmetics. We generally use our own supply of wax to produce other products with including our range of lip balms.
