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.”
- Add to your lotions to add skin protective properties
- Add to your lip balm (as recommended by the Mayo Clinic) to provide greater permanence and elasticity.
- Use in candle making for a brighter, healthier home

I teach classes and workshops in encaustics, as well as am a practicing encaustic artist. I've been making my own clear encaustic medium using the Bulk Apothecary white wax pellets along with Damar resin crystals. I've been thrilled with the results as well as the savings. I'm guessing my cost is less than half over the retail costs at the art supply stores! The quality and shipping have been excellent.

Beware if you find a much lower price for beeswax pellets, many of those suppliers sell beeswax adulterated with paraffin. This is genuine beeswax. These are quite small which makes them even easier for measuring out by volume. I’ve found unbleached beeswax, whether in block or pellets, varies in aroma, some more sweet honey-like than others, along with a smoky scent. That’s how the batch is I received. This can result from the hives being heavily smoked by the keepers. But for most applications this doesn’t present an issue in the final product.

I used this for lotion bars (I made 150 of them) and am very pleased. Will buy again.

I purchased this to add to my homemade body butter for my eczema & pregnant belly stretch marks prevention (under the advice of my doctor, make sure this product is right for you) and it is AMAZING!! Seriously the quality is great, my very sensitive skin did not react and my skin has welcomed this alternative! Packaging was a large box with popcorn styrofoam filling, seemed too much for the beeswax bag but its the only safe way to transport it. Received it in a timely manner and LOVE it!

This is the first time I've ordered from this vendor. I got a pound of the yellow beeswax pellets. The color was great and the small pellets are convenient for melting.
I wanted beeswax for a few of my personal projects and for some projects for friends of mine. I wanted to be able to use the wax for coating special metals, for lip balms, and even candles.
But the smell was not good at all. Not like honey or anything similar.
One thing I'm good at is identifying smells of specific flowers and fruits, which is why I started making candles.
But I'm not going to use this wax to make candles or lip balm, because the smell is not pleasant and strong.
I will still use the wax on other projects, just not on any projects that need a good fragrance.

I bought the yellow beeswax and am so happy with it. I made candles and they turned out perfect! Great price too!

This bulk beeswax works great for our encaustic medium. Love that they are pellets rather than blocks.
Posted by Karen Jenkins on 29th Jan 2018
I love the fact that this product doesn't have a strong waxy odor like some other vendors.
