Smells funny and absorbs fragrance

There was only 1 review that said anything negative about this beeswax so I went with the positive reviews but I have to say, I agree with Laura. This beeswax had a strong smell almost similar to rancid olive oil. I used it anyway thinking it may not matter but I does and it seems to absorb all the fragrance and not let it go. I used the same recipe as always (I normally use yellow beeswax) for chocolate peppermint lip balm. I ended up putting in extra chocolate and peppermint and after it cooled it still tasted and smelled pretty waxy. My friend and I used it for wax melts as well with the same effect. We wasted a lot of fragrance and the melts barely threw off any fragrance. I'm new to Bramble Berry and I have loved pretty much everything else I've purchased but I won't buy this again.

Not thrilled

I still haven't used it and thus can't evaluate this beeswax in terms of its efficiency or functionality yet. However, I am docking two stars because the bag I got smells awful- like burnt plastic, maybe. I'm quite worried about what happens when I do decide to use it. Will my candles smell like this? I really hope not! What sucks is that according to the reviews and item description, this item shouldn't smell (it's deodorized). Maybe I got a bad batch? All I know is, unlike many other of their products, this is one product I shan't be repurchasing from Brambleberry

Smells & Works Great

I have tried beeswax from a few vendors and they always have a funny smell. This beeswax smells like it should, with no funny scent. It works great in all my salves as well as to make candles with.

White Beeswax

I really like the quality of this beeswax, but I'm wondering if I should have bought the yellow instead? MY friend made me a lip balm and I absolutely loved it. I followed her recipe exactly except she used yellow beeswax. Her lip balm seemed softer and more spreadable. The recipe is below: Does anyone know of a variation / how much to make this softer / more spreadable with a white beeswax? Or maybe I should something instead of coconut oil.... mix 4 tablespoons of shaved beeswax, 4 tablespoons of coconut oil, a little squirt of vitamin E oil, and five drops of lemon essential oil and five drops of lavender essential oil

Hi Carrie! I'm so glad you really like the quality of our White Beeswax! If you're wanting to make your recipe a little bit softer you can add a small amount of a lightweight liquid oil like Sweet Almond Oil or Avocado Oil.

White beeswax

I use this in mainly in my lotion bars, lip balm and bath melts. I like that it doesn't have the yellow color or smell of yellow beeswax. It helps keep products hard but goes on smooth and melts easily. One thing I will say is always melt beeswax in a double boiler and never in the microwave or the glass container could shatter.
