White Beeswax - White beeswax is the wax separated from the honeycomb of the hive bee. It is bleached by exposing it in thin layers to the action of the air, sunlight, and moisture. This wax comes in a granulated pastille form and is made white without the use of chemicals or chlorine.Ingredients:Botanical Name: Cera albaCommon Name: Beeswax, White
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
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.
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
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...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.
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.
I am very happy with this beeswax. Zero scent, melts nicely & played well with the butters I chose for making hard lotion bars. If you are iffy about buying yellow beeswax due to scent try this product. You won't be sorry.
