Bees wax is a 100% natural wax produced by honey bees. The wax is secreted from the glands of worker honey bees and is used to construct the combs in which the honey bees raises young bees (brood combs), as well as storing honey and pollen (honey combs). The honey combs are “capped” by the bees with a thin layer of beeswax. When we extract honey from the comb we must remove this layer of wax. Hence for every thousand pounds of extract honey we produce, we have around 20 pounds of beeswax.
Our handcrafted candles are made from this pure beeswax. We craft our candles from virgin capping wax derived from the honey extraction process, which results in a very high quality light wax with a faint but pleasant sweet aroma. We have many different styles and sizes of candles. Please contact us for more information.
We also hand make a premium lip balm using pure beeswax produced by our very own local chemical free hives. Balm from beeswax is superior to other balms in that pure beeswax is non-water soluble. This property means our balm is nearly impervious to the elements (and an occasional lick!).
