Make a soap recipe with this ingredient
Yellow Beeswax - The most commonly used wax in the toiletry industry, our beeswax is fully refined (but not bleached) and comes in granules, which makes measuring easy and convenient. Beeswax is a substance secreted by the worker honey bees used for the construction of their honeycomb. In addition to making an excellent hardening agent in lip balm and lotion bars, Beeswax is a wonderful fuel for candles. It burns longer and more clean than candles made with most other waxes. Due to the nature of the product, this beeswax does have a smoky scent. If you prefer a unscented beeswax, we recommend the White Beeswax.

This beeswax has become an imperative part of my skin routine. I started having skin irritation and allergy issues after applying self-tanners and it seemed as though nothing felt good on my skin. Now, I use the beeswax for a salve that I use made with coconut, grape seed and essential oils…and it is amazing!! The beeswax melts beautifully and provides wonderful consistency to the salve. I just placed a new order and can't wait to get it in! I love the beeswax, it's the best! I've used another beeswax from Whole Foods and it did not melt and provide any consistency to my salve recipe--only floated to the top. Yet, this beeswax mixed in my salve and feels incredible on my skin! Now I can't live without it!
I use this beeswax to make candles. I love it with "Pure Honey" fragrance oil. It melts smoothly and does not have any off-putting scent to it.
Because this is a natural product it can vary from batch to batch. This past order was a more dark yellow and has smoky/earthy notes to it. I personally prefer it when it has a softer honey-like smell, when it's a lighter yellow. In lotion bars with the FO being OMH the earthy notes were hard to overpower. Rachel was very helpful in resolving this issue for me. Great customer service!
I, personally, LOVE the scent of this beeswax! So sweet and honey-like! Works great in my massage melts!
I have just started making Body Butter Bars using this and my customers have LOVED it. I have had no issues with smell and it melts down well with my other ingredients, sets up well in containers. I like the natural color since most my customers are buying for all natural bars and soaps.
