Description

Beeswax is a yellowish plastic substance secreted by bees, which build the honeycombs of their hives with it. This is a quite rare product: to obtain 300g of wax, bees have to produce between 2 and 7.5kg of honey. Wax is harvested at the end of the season and without any solvent. Centrifugation and separation with boiling water are only used. With its smooth touch and nice smell, beeswax is unique for its film-forming, moisturising, protective, anti-static and sanitising properties. It is a component of many products, such candles, wood maintenance products… These flakes melt at 64°c.

Recipes

For wood and leather maintenance. To prepare a homemade wax polish, cover beeswax flakes with Turpentine oil in a closed jar. Add a little bit of Turpentine oil everyday (only during 2 days), until a creamy liquid is obtained. Store your homemade polish in an airtight jar, use with a lint-free cloth and apply in fine layer. Five days after application, remove the excess by rubbing vigorously with a cloth, in the direction of the wood grain.
