Description

100% Natural, premium quality white beeswax pastilles produced sustainably in West Africa. This product has a very different scent to New Zealand Beeswax, milder with smoky notes.  Learn more about how this beeswax is changing lives in West Africa here.

Pure beeswax is white in colour but usually, it appears yellow/orange coloured. This is due to natural staining from pollen and propolis gathered when the bees are producing the wax.

Beeswax is produced by young worker bees and serves as the construction material for the hive. It is produced by special glands on the bee's abdomen and then chewed and moulded into intricate cells that store honey, bee larvae and royal jelly and more.

Chemically, Beeswax is comprised of esters, fatty acids and long-chain fatty alcohols. It is brittle at cold temperatures, becomes mouldable once above room temperature and melts at 62 – 64°C.
