Wholesale Natural Yellow Beeswax
Beeswax is a natural wax derived from honeybees. Typically ten (10) pounds of honey yields one (1) pound of beeswax. When originally formed, wax in the honeycomb is nearly white, but yellows with the addition of natural oils introduced by pollen from flowers. Beeswax is collected directly from the honeycombs of a beehive and can be found in different forms. Do to its high melting point; beeswax’s already easy workability is enhanced when in granules/pearl form.
Bulk Beeswax Uses and Benefits
The use of beeswax may be as old as history itself. From the earliest known example of therapeutic dentistry, dating back over 6,000 years ago, to modern uses which include fine candle making, skin care, and providing a protective coating for fine cheeses. Research even suggests that cosmetic and medicinal uses of beeswax may be superior to petroleum-based products. (See below)
The History of Beeswax
The known history of mankind’s use of beeswax dates back to Neolithic Europe. In order to reduce pain and sensitivity in a cracked tooth, beeswax was used as a therapeutic dental filling. Beeswax was also ancient humans’ first plastic. Written historical evidence, of the use of beeswax, dates back to the ancient Egyptians who wrote of beautiful Cleopatra’s use of it in her cosmetics and bath soap. More recently, physicians also recommended it for various therapeutic properties and it was applied to treat a number of ailments. Beeswax was also an important part of composite balms used in dressings after surgery.
Benefits and Uses of Beeswax
Beeswax has been found naturally useful in medicine, cosmetics, food and even art. To those who appreciate a safer, more natural environment, it provides many different uses.
A healthy Environment
Beeswax candles are naturally scented with the aroma of honey. This is highly desirable for those who suffer with asthma or is allergic or sensitive to smells. Pure beeswax candles as emit little (if any) smoke when they burn – keeping your home cleaner and more comfortable. Besides the smoke, these candles burn with little or no wax drip making them last longer. Recent studies suggest that burning beeswax candles can actually purify the air by releasing negative ions removing impurities from the air we breathe.
Natural Skin Care
By itself, beeswax locks in moisture, fosters cells and protects skin. With its amazing ability to work with in concert with multiple ingredients, beeswax can be utilized to benefit and beautify the entire body. With anti-bacterial properties and vitamin A, it aids in natural healing and cell development without clogging pores. With its water repelling properties, beeswax sustains sunscreen action.
Research on Beeswax
Studies continually show that yellow and white beeswax offers no toxicological concerns, even when ingested (in small amounts). Many commercial beekeepers prefer to chew beeswax honeycombs to traditional chewing gum. Beeswax acts as an anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiallergenic and a germicidal antioxidant. A study by German scientists, “Efficacy of barrier creams in comparison to skin care products in dental laboratory technicians – a controlled trial,” (translation) from the Journal der Deutschen Dermatologischen Gesellschaft found that, “…The results demonstrate that the use of after work moisturizers is highly beneficial and under the chosen study conditions even superior to barrier creams applied at work. This approach is more practical for many professions and may effectively reduce the frequency of irritant contact dermatitis.”

Unfortunately, this wax proved unusable in making unscented wax candles. When burned, this batch lets off an acrid, chemical smell that is very unlike the light, floral honey smell I'm used to with natural beeswax candles. The whole house now smells like the inside of a chimney and I can't use this for its intended purpose. Not sure if there's an issue with sourcing on this batch, as there are so many positive reviews, I'm hoping its a one off.
I have a candle company that produces pure beeswax aromatherapy. I noticed a burned smell from the wax but thought I may have overheated it. I made a new batch of candles. I still noticed the burned smell but once scented it wasn't as bad. I happened to make a new scent and decided to test burn it to see how the color and scent performed. That's wen I realized the wax didn't burn properly. I have made and distributed over 100 lbs. of defective candles which I will have to replace or fund customers for. I've made numerous candles with scent, without scent, with color and without to make sure it wasn't something else. Then I burned some of the white candles to see if it was burning properly. It's worse. Barely burns at all. I'm confident the wax is bad. I switched to bulk because their customer service and delivery is so good. I hope they are going to make this right. It's Christmas and I have no more wax to make product with and I'm going to have to pull much of my inventory from wholesale accounts. This is a disaster!
This beeswax works very well in my soapmaking, and you can't beat the price. The only downside for me is that it has a strong smokey scent rather than a sweet honey scent. It only shifts the scent in my soaps a little so not a big deal, but I can't really use it in lotions or beeswax ornaments very well because the scent is off. The white was is a little better, but still not a natural beeswax scent. Just depends on what you plan to use it for ...
The yellow beeswax I've purchased from other vendors has a light scent of honey. This yellow beeswax has no fragrance at all.
I use this to make mustache wax for my handlebar. When I discovered that I had a sensitivity to some commercially purchased waxes I decided to make my own. After I researched formulas online, I purchased ingredients here. Very satisfied with all purchases.
Very easy to work with. Will reorder soon.
Excellent product - the small beads melt easily. Great price. Fast shipping and delivery.
Great for homemade beauty products. The beads are much simpler to melt and there is no apparent difference in white or yellow other than the color. Great quality, lasts a long time and comes inside a reusable bag.:)
I have been a customer of Bulk Apothecary for 6+ years and have been very satisfied with every product I have purchased. This beeswax is no exception. It is clean, easy to work with and the color and odor are exactly what I expect and want. In 6 years I have contacted customer service twice and both times they exceeded my expectation for the way they handled my issue. I have looked at other companies and Bulk Apothecary almost always has the best price.
