Natural Beeswax for Healing Balms and Candles
The colour of beeswax depends on the plants the bees feed on and comes from pollen and propolis. Natural beeswax can range in colour from a pale yellow to almost black.
Our Natural Beeswax 500g comes straight from the beekeeper and Mr Bee. It is not bleached, with no added chemicals. Supplied in blocks of 500g. Please note : because this product is natural and untreated, it may contain bee propolis.
Beeswax does not expand and contract with heat as paraffin wax does. This is one of the reasons why beeswax is a good choice for container candles.
