Pure Beeswax blocks – 100% Pure Natural Beeswax
We only use beeswax from our hives to make these blocks. We also use foundationless frames so all the wax in our hives comes purely from our bees and nowhere else.
We warm the wax gently until it just melts in order to retain as much of the natural oils and fragrance as possible. The only processing is the filtering we do to remove any dirt etc from the wax.
All of this care and attention means our wax is of the highest quality and has the lovely scent of beeswax.
Beeswax has many uses as a lubricant and water proofer, either applied straight to the object by rubbing, or mixing with suitable oils such as linseed to form a softer, more pliable wax that is easier to apply to fabrics and wood.
One of the oldest uses of beeswax is in candle making as it provides a bright, smoke-free light. Our blocks are great for making candles using one of the many available silicone molds.
Other applications include:
Sporting applications such as in archery, sailing, surfing and fishing
Arts and crafts including furniture repair, sewing, jewellery making and batik.
Cosmetics such as lip-balms, hand-creams and moisturisers
Food preservation when used to make beeswax wraps.
