Bulk raw beeswax from the wax cappings on honeycombs. Nice yellow color. Will contain some natural impurities. Sold by the pound. Uncooked, unfiltered, unprocessed – just raw beeswax.
- Beeswax is produced when honeybees consume honey. It takes about 8-1/2 lbs. of honey to produce one pound of beeswax.
- Beeswax is great lubricant for oiling furniture joints. It is also good for smooth movement of doors and windows.
- Beeswax is a regular component for mustache creams.
- You can polish your granite counter tops regularly with molten beeswax to keep them shiny bright! Just apply the beeswax, allow it to dry up and then wipe it off with a suede piece of cloth.
- In archery, bow strings are bees waxed both in order to reduce friction as well as to protect the string from damage due to dirt.
- To waterproof leather boots & gloves, rub beeswax on to outerwear.
- Baking pans are coated with beeswax for a natural non-stick surface.
- Beeswax is used to coat the sewing thread to strengthen it and to give it a smooth coating so that it is less likely to catch or snag material while sewing.
- Beeswax has a melting point between 146 and 149 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Burning of beeswax candles produces a white rounded flame, giving a wonderful warm glow.
Very happy with the wax, it was a pleasure doing business

This wax is fabulous to work with. The color is great and it smells divine!
awesome wax.. it weighed well within any tolerance that my scale has here.. 10lbs is 10lbs :)..
it melts perfect in a slow cooker. pours beautiful into 2oz tins or into large cupcake (teflon for easy removal)..
will be purchasing more!
Great Wax. I used it for demos during the St. Louis Renaissance Faire last year. It smelled wonderful, and has made great candles! I plan to order more for this next season!
Love the wax! Melts easy, smells awesome!
Beeswax is one of my favorite smells in the world and I could smell this beeswax before I even got the box open. It’s amazing. The color is just like the photo, golden and beautiful. There are some "impurities" (as mentioned), but just a few, and a quick melt and filter took care of it. I’m totally in love.

I was very happy with the quality of the was and the fact that it was in chips and small pieces which made it very easy for me to use, I ordered 4 lbs and used all of it for my project! Thanks again for a great product. Paul G.

Oh my, this is my first experience with beeswax and I wanted to go made in the USA. Not disappointed. This stuff smells AMAZING. It’s sweet and lends a great scent to my homemade lotion bars! I can’t wait to use it in deodorants and lip balms! Be warned though, it doesn’t come wrapped or anything but beeswax doesn’t spoil. Best price I’ve found online and they’ve won my business! I’ll be back for more and I’ll try your delicious honey!
Thanks for the bee, also! Love that the artist signed it :p

Fabulous – RAW wax. As a beekeeper, I look for wax to pour molds – this wax is in its raw form, just what I expected, and wanted. I will be ordering again!
Great wax. needed extra as a beekeeper – will buy again

Excellent beeswax! Smells WONDERFUL!! We have purchased beeswax in the past, from other vendors, and their product did not compare to the quality of this product. Their beeswax either had a smoky or chemical smell to it. These type of scents are not what we want in our products! Sleeping Bear’s beeswax is of excellent quality! It melts well and blends good in our salves and hand balms! Buy some! You’ll love it!

I decided that I wanted to start making my own candles to get away from the toxic chemicals found in most commercially made ones. This was my first time ordering beeswax so I wanted to buy good quality. I looked for over an hour at different places online, almost all of them having at least some bad reviews and most having terrible reviews. Fortunately, I stumbled upon this lovely business and I could not be happier with the product I ordered. I bought 3 pounds of raw beeswax and used almost all of it in one day making candles. I’ve already ordered more!

My first time dealing with beeswax.
It is much cleaner than I expected, and smells amazing! Shipping was quick too.

I love raw honey and this product is exceptional! I like to test beeswax by chewing a small bit, its smooth, pliable, fragrant and holds its form without crumbling. 5 stars, two thumbs up and a very satisfied customer. I will be buying for sleeping bear farms from now on.

I use beeswax to make drinking horns. The reviews convinced me to give this place a try. Not dissapointed! The wax is much cleaner than I had anticipated. Arrived as one large brick that melted wonderfully in a pot on my woodstove. So glad I found this company. I thank you and the bees!

My mother I. Law buys me ur Tupelo honey for Christmas each yr-it is my favorite. This yr product arrived with damaged top. Called and asked if they would send me another one. They sent me 3, along with another bottle of honey. I am a customer for life now! Excellent customer service going above and beyond what I asked for or expected.
Perfect beeswax. I used this for my plastic foundation and the bees built on it so readily. It smells amazing too.
