Using heat for our yellow wax and pressure for our white wax, debris is removed leaving a pure, natural wax great for making candles, lip balms, soap and more!

Whitened Wax

  • Whitened beeswax is ideal for projects where you desire a light color finished product or if you want to add colorants.
  • Contains NO BLEACH.

Yellow Wax

  • Yellow beeswax is ideal for candle making or projects where you desire the natural beeswax color to shine.
  • Varies in color from light yellow to yellow orange due to many factors, including nectar source, age of the wax, how heavily trafficked (by tiny bee feet!), among many other things.

Note:

  • Beeswax is a natural product and densities may vary, therefore weights are approximate.
  • One pound of wax makes roughly six "12" candles
  • Looking for a larger quantity? We also offer 11.5 lb. and 22 lb. beeswax blocks.
  • For cosemetic use and candle making

Additional Information:

Beeswax is mainly made up of esters of fatty acids and is water insoluble when solid. Its specific gravity allows it to float on water. By melting it in a vat of water one can "render" the wax and separate it from the other substances embedded in the wax, which sink to the bottom of the rendering vessel. The remnants of the rendering process are referred to as slum gum. Once rendered, the wax worker can further separate the wax by filtering it through various grades of filter cloth, leaving a beautifully colored wax once the wax is poured into shaping blocks and cools to a solid state. There is no residue at the bottom of any of our wax.

It takes approximately 8 pounds of nectar for a honey bee colony to produce 1 lb. of wax!
