Pure Nebraska Beeswax (One) 1lb Block
100% Pure Beeswax straight from our hives. During the honey harvest we uncap the wax cells and save the beeswax. We use the excess wax and melt it down by hand, triple filter it, and pour it in blocks to resell. Pure beeswax is one of nature’s most perfect products and never expires. Beeswax is made from the nectar of flowers. The honeybees produce beeswax from wax glands on the sides of their body and use it to create “cells” to store their honey in. It possesses a subtle aroma, the fragrance of honey ingrained with the other scents present in a beehive. On the average, eight pounds of honey are consumed by the bees for each pound of wax made by the colony.
Pure Beeswax has many uses especially in making your own skin care products because of compounds called “wax esters” that exist in both beeswax and human skin. Beeswax is a hydrating ingredient that increases skins essential moisture.
Beeswax is also used as wood polishing and in candle making because it is clean burning, air purifying, smokeless, non-allergic, has longer burn time, and smells of sweet honey comb aroma.
