This beeswax option is provided in chunks to make it easier for you to use to melt and use in smaller quantities. the chunks vary in size and shape, but will equal 1kg.
This is the perfect beeswax for:

- making gorgeous beeswax candles
- making balms and cosmetics including beeswax lip balms, heel balms and moisturisers
- making a conditioning and protective furniture polish or leather polish
Australian beeswax is some of the purest in the world. And we guarantee our beeswax is all natural with no additives or fillers.
Depending on what plants our bees have been enjoying nectar and pollen from, the beeswax will slightly vary in colour each harvest from yellow through to olive. It will always have that beautiful, gentle beeswax and honey scent. Just love it!
Feel good knowing you are buying direct from the beekeeper and that this is 100% pure Australian beeswax.
Did you know that Australian beeswax is some of the best in the world? This is because we are one of the very few countries that does not have a varroa mite problem. That means Australian beekeepers (unlike beekeepers in the US, NZ, Asia and Europe etc) don't need to use miticides in our hives - therefore your beeswax is more pure and free of miticide residue.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q. Is you beeswax food grade?
A. Yes it is.
Q. What is beeswax bloom?
A. Beeswax bloom is the dusty-looking, dull 'film' that you will sometimes see on the surface of beeswax and beeswax candles. It usually occurs when the wax cools and is exposed to differing temperatures. It's basically that the softer oils in the wax rise to the surface, it's a natural phenomena and not harmful in any way. If the look bothers you, you can either buff the wax with a cloth, or gently apply warm air via a hairdryer. Beeswax bloom is actually a great sign as it shows your beeswax is 100% natural, but we also sometimes wipe it down a bit before shipping, and it is dependent on the temp.
Q. What have your bees been feeding on to create the wax?
A. Depending on the time of year, our bees will have been feeding on different native species including yellowbox, ironbark, stringy bark, Australian manuka, bloodwood, applebox and various ground flora.
