White Beeswax

Pure Beeswax Tea lights Votives

How do you get the White Beeswax white?
When the beeswax is generated by the wax glands in the abdomen of the bee it originally comes out creamy white. The foraging worker bees bring nectar and pollen into the hive thereby staining the wax to a golden hue. The beeswax can be filtered back to white.
By exposing it to sunlight or UV rays (bleaching), the yellow pigments are destroyed and white wax - Cera alba - is obtained. Bleaching is carried out after the wax has been converted into ribbons or grains by casting (to increase the oxidation surface).
Our White Beeswax is pure, chemical free and pressure filtered beeswax. It has a beautiful ivory color and a sweet beeswax fragrance.
