Brick of Beeswax
A 1 oz Brick of Beeswax is 100% natural beeswax. We use purified beeswax so candles burn smoothly. Customers purchase one or more of these bricks for use in various craft projects. Our natural beeswax by nature is far superior to paraffin when it comes to its uses!
The Color of the brick of beeswax will vary depending on many factors. One factor is the age of the wax. New wax is very pale, almost white. This wax is typically obtained from the “wax cappings” This is produced by the bees when they seal the honey in a cell of honeycomb. As honeycomb ages, it gets darker. This is typically obtained when beekeepers decide to replace the old honeycomb.
Another factors is the exposure to light. As the brick of beeswax sits in exposure to light, it changes from yellow to more ivory. This is a very slow process and often not observed because the beeswax is used long before change occurs! That being said, it is good to keep in mind that your natural brick of beeswax may not match exactly as depicted here.
