This raw beeswax we are offering is from cappings we’ve collected over the last few seasons. We use a commercial wax melter and liquefy the caps at 180 degrees for 24 hours. Read about our process in detail here. The wax floats to the top and the slum gum sinks to the bottom. We pump the molten wax from the middle and pour into a variety of molds in different shapes and sizes. The resulting product is relatively clean with consistent color, though the color is different from season to season based on pollen color.
We do not recommend using this wax in cosmetic preparations. Wax that has been cleaned for cosmetic preparations go through many more intricate processes to make it free of contaminants. Try this great source for cosmetic grade wax.
If you are new to using beeswax in various projects, the easiest way to work with beeswax is to put the beeswax into the freezer for a few hours and then grate it or cut with a sharp knife.
