Beeswax Australia

Escentials of Australia

Australian unrefined bees wax

Fairly clean, light yellow, fragrant and lovely - fresh from Sunshine Coast honey bees.

It has some light black specking, so it will need to to filtered one more time when you melt it.

Beeswax has a high resistance to the passage of heat and is best heated and cooled slowly. Otherwise it tends to become more brittle and liable to develop cracks. To preserve the aroma of fresh honey it should never be raised more than a few degrees above melting point and then only for a short period.

IMPORTANT When melting beeswax always use a water bath by placing the container of wax probably a small saucepan inside a larger pan of water. Never place a pan of wax directly on a hot plate or gas ring. Beeswax can easily become damaged by localised overheating and if it ignites can burn ferociously. Beeswax does not boil it just gets hotter and hotter until it ignites.
