Pure bees wax is extensively used. The most popular and usable size is the 100g blocks, but if you are wanting different sizes we have 1kg blocks or for larger quantities please get in touch. Buying Australian beeswax from local hives has never been easier.
Beeswax is one of nature’s most amazing products! The beeswax comes directly from uncapping our honey frames from our hives, so we know it’s good. It often varies in colour but the majority is yellow.
How do I use beeswax?
It can be used in a very extensive list of projects. Beeswax blocks can be melted down gently in a double boiler on the stove and then add other ingredients depending on what your project is. Some projects I’ve come across are:
- make your own balms
- home made beeswax food wraps
- surf board wax
- lubricating wood
- make a batch of french canelés
- condition your cutting board
- make your own crayons
- water proof your shoes
- polish your bronze
- prevent tools from rusting
- violin string coating
- didgeridoo mouth piece coating
- coating bowls
- water proofing medieval horn mugs
- unstick your jumper zippers
- and much much more…
All our beeswax has been lovingly hand-melted with steam and double-filtered but may still contain pollen and honey remnants. See our old melting process here. Beeswax is often yellow due to the variety of nectar, pollen, and resins gathered by the bees to make the wax and also by thousands of little bee feet walking on the frames every day. When fresh beeswax is first built in the hive it can also be white.
Our happy hives are located on suburban and rural properties from Brisbane to Gympie. We use no chemicals in the management of our bees or the processing of our raw honey or pure beeswax. We are organically minded in every step of our beekeeping journey.
When you buy any of our products you are supporting a local family of beekeepers that support an important industry and other family-run businesses. Dream big for local impact!
