Pure Beeswax is naturally scented and produces a fragrant candle that burns longer and cleaner than ordinary wax candles. Our Beeswax has a light, delightful scent of honey that is not overpowering, making it a wonderful alternative for those who cannot tolerate perfumes and other scents.
Pure beeswax also has the highest melting point of any known wax. It's slow, smokeless flame gives off more light and heat then other waxes. Our beeswax can be used in many manufacturing processes for many products including candles, cosmetics and soaps.
Is it Natural?
Our 100% natural beeswax comes as pictured, in a 2 lb block, in a cream to off white color. Our Beeswax is not bleached but instead goes through a natural color removing process. The exact process is proprietary but we believe it involves charcoal filtration.
Why use Beeswax in Soap

Why use Beeswax in Candles instead of paraffin
- Beeswax is a 100% natural fuel created by bees whereas Paraffin is a toxic byproduct of the oil industry.
Beeswax candles burn cleaner than any other, Paraffin candles give off many of the same toxic fumes as are found in auto exhaust.
Beeswax candles burn longer than others and do not drip, Paraffin candles are relatively short burning and drip excessively.
Beeswax candles emit bright light that has the same light spectrum as the sun, Paraffin candles produce a disorganized light spectrum very similar to old-fashioned incandescent bulbs.
Beeswax candles emit negative ions that actually clean the air and invigorate the body, Paraffin candles produce toxic petrol-soot that eventually stains all interior surfaces.
Beeswax candles are naturally scented by the honey and nectar of flowers packed into the honeycomb within the beehive. Paraffin candles typically contain artificial fragrances and colors which also produce toxins and stains when burned.
Beeswax candles come from a renewable resource: beeswax which is being farmed and renewed naturally everyday. Paraffin candles come from a nonrenewable resource: petroleum.
When melting beeswax, always use a water bath by placing the container of wax - probably a small saucepan - inside a larger pan of water. Never place a pan of wax directly on a hot plate or gas ring. Beeswax can easily become damaged by localized overheating and if it ignites, can burn more ferociously than any chip pan fire. Beeswax does not boil - it just gets hotter and hotter until it ignites.
