Pure Beeswax is naturally scented and produces a fragrant candle that burns longer and cleaner than ordinary wax candles. Our Beeswax has a light scent that is not overpowering, allowing you to add your favorite essential oils to fragrance it. It also makes a wonderful middle-ground alternative for those who cannot tolerate perfumes and other scents, allowing you to add your favorite essential oils to fragrance it. In fact, pure beeswax has the highest melting point of any known wax. Its slow, smokeless flame gives off more light and heat than other waxes without dripping.
Our 100% natural beeswax comes in blocks of 2.2 lbs (1 kg) each and is golden yellow in color.
Uses: Beeswax can be used in the manufacturing process for many products including candles, soaps, natural wood polishes and pastes, and sealing wax.
Caution: Overheating this product will impact its delicate fragrance. Please melt at as low a heat as possible while stirring gently, and use as soon as it is melted.
Warning: Never melt beeswax over direct heat, always use a double boiler! Beeswax does not boil, it just gets hotter and hotter until it ignites, and then it will burn ferociously.

Rating: BUYER BEWARE!! I haven't worked with this yet so I cannot give it a proper review really and I'm hoping that NDA lets people come back to their reviews to update them like some other places do. But it's all my fault, I saw yellow, block and assumed without reading about it that it would smell like regular bees wax.. Usually if a bees wax is processed people whiten it as well. Were it white i would have looked to see if there was a yellow one. I took it out of the bubble wrap and didn't even open it before putting it to my nose for a big whiff expecting my usual ahhhhh. As usually when you buy bees wax you can smell it through the wrapping. So I came on here and lo' and behold it has been purified of smell. I assumed that purified simply meant that it had been filtered not that it has been chemically altered to remove fragrance. Again totally my fault. But buyer beware - this has no fragrance to it. Hence if I'm going to make a candle with it - which is what I use my bees wax for more than using it for any other product (although I do too make salves and add it to soap occasionally), I will have to fragrance it myself. Which kinda defeats the point of trying to clean the air with it (normally when you burn bees wax, the negative particles it emits grab hold of the positive particles in the air, like allergens and dust and whatnot causing them to become heavy and fall to the ground, hence purifying your air - as such it is good to burn in a room of someone with the flu for instance - but if you are going to fragrance it then it will emit it's own toxins in the air and so well I guess if I want it to be all natural I could use EOs but do you know how much EOs are required to make a big candle? - especially bees wax? - omgoodness!!! - sooo much!! - much more than soap!!) Anyway I hope it performs better than usual bees wax due to the purification - that would be one thing at least that would save it from being something I spend my money on in order to make special products using bees wax as opposed to say soy or candelilla - I'm hoping for really good lip balm!!! Or in order to make up for the lack of smell! Now the lip balm I should fragrance too - although I could use cocoa butter in a larger amount and less bees wax in order to produce a natural fragrance I'm going to give it 4 stars because otherwise it appears to be just fine and if I am able to come back on here to update my review then I will have some news about how it performed. Sorry bout that.

Rating: I didnt notice any smoky smell. It smelt like bee pollen but more intense. However once I melted it that strong bee pollen smell went away. and I really loved using the wax in my face balm. I will try the beads next time, is a bit hard to cut but the end results are worth it

Rating: I would have given this 5 stars, but the smell was hardly anything close to honey. A great product and high in quality, but the smell was very overpowering, smokey, and strange. Fortunately if used in small amounts, the smell can be covered with essential oils, but I'll try a different beeswax next time.

Rating: Great price. But very disappointed. Extremely strong smokey scent. Overpowered my herbal infused oils in hard lotions. I have purchased wax from many different suppliers. Ive neverbrun into this before. Beeswax usually has a sweet hint of honey scent to it. :( Will not be purchasing this again.
Rating: I was surprised to find it had a strong smokey smell. The wax is also darker than I am used to. I will not be purchasing this beeswax again.

Rating: Good quality and no noticeable smell. It has worked well combined with cocoa butter and jojoba for a customizable salve or balm.
