Beeswax should speak for itself but there are so many
full of fillers, pesticides, and other unnatural weirdness
and refined it can hardly be called beeswax!
Our bees wax comes from happy dancing bees that are
not medicated or fed artificial food supplements. They
are free to roam acres upon acres of wild flowers,
veggie blossoms, medicinal herbs and blossoming fruit
trees. Most of the wax is considered a beneficial
byproduct of honey harvesting; Beeswax is produced
by the (female) worker honeybees. The wax is secreted
from wax glands on the underside of the bee's
abdomen and is molded into six-sided cells which are
filled with honey, then capped with more wax. When
honey is harvested, the top layer of wax that covers the
cells, or the cappings, must be removed from each
hexagon-shaped cell. SO to make a long story short we
take all of the wax cappings from the honey comb,
save them, then melt them down into nice manageable
bricks, and last but not least allow them to solidify in a
clean environment free from chemicals.
Just to put it into perspective, one pound of wax
requires the bees to consume about ten pounds of
honey. Honeybees collect nectar from approximately
two million flowers to make one pound of honey, so
nectar is collected from 20 million flowers to make 10
pounds of honey to make one pound of beeswax!
You will notice the color of our wax varies from pale
yellow to a deep gold, that is due to the pollen and
propolis content of the wax. You may also notice dark
spots and swirls; again this is due to pollen content and
propolis. Because our beeswax has not been refined,
filled, or otherwise altered other than being melted
down it smells amazingly like honey!
Even after melting, it still remains a biologically active
product, retaining some anti-bacterial properties and
also contains vitamin A.
