Beeswax is the secretion from worker bees used for the building of combs and the sealing of stores of honey.


The secretion of beeswax is produced by glands on the underside of the bee's abdomen. These glands become active when a bee is roughly 8 to 17 days old.

Pure beeswax is one of nature's most perfect products,
and is far superior to any other type of candle wax.

  The temperature of the hive is critical and must remain between 92 - 95 degrees Fahrenheit.  Additionally, an extra supply of food (Pollen) must be available to the worker bees that are of the correct age for secreting wax.  
  Beeswax is so pure that is actually has the highest melting point of any natural wax - 149 degrees Fahrenheit.
