Customers requiring beeswax of the finest quality should consider this Premium-Grade Canadian Beeswax, available in convenient blocks of 1 kg (2.2 lbs.) each! These Beeswax Blocks are made of 100% pure wax that has been refined through physical processes without the use of chemicals.
This wax is first melted then filtered through a centrifugal machine to remove any impurities. Bleached by activated carbon and filtered a second time with water to remove its scent and color, the appearance of this natural wax may vary from white to off-white. These all-natural, refined, premium-grade blocks can be used in formulations for which a cream base or end product is intended to be fragrance-free and white to off-white in color but to which color and fragrance can later be added.
Uses: For cosmetic applications, Beeswax White Blocks can be used in lip balms, lotions, creams, salves, body butter, and soaps to which they provide body, stiffness, and thickness.
In candlemaking, beeswax produces candles that burn longer, slower, and cleaner than petroleum-based waxes (ordinary paraffin candles); the absence of petroleum means that candles made from this wax will not experience ‘smoking.’ With a melting point that is higher than that of other waxes, beeswax gives off more light and heat with an even flame that does not cause the candle to drip, making it ideal for aromatherapy-grade candles. These Beeswax Blocks can be used purely as is, or they can be added to paraffin wax to increase its burning time.
Caution: The melting point of this wax is between 62-67 °C (143-152 °F). Overheating this wax will impact its delicate scent and its color; when melting it, ensure that the heat is as low as possible while stirring gently. To prevent poor-quality results, such as a burnt odor and variations in color, use this product as soon as it is entirely melted.
Warning: When melting beeswax, always use a ‘water bath’ by placing the container of wax inside a larger pan of water, such as a saucepan. Never place a container of wax directly on a hot plate or gas ring, as beeswax can easily become damaged by localized overheating and, if it ignites, it can burn more ferociously than any ‘chip pan’ fire. Beeswax does not boil – it simply gains intensity until it ignites.
