100% Beeswax Bars
Bees secrete and use beeswax to build the hexagon shaped cells they store honey in. When the cells are full of 'ripe' honey, bees cap the cells with wax. When collecting honey, the Rita Bees removes, collects and purifies the cell cappings. The purified material is 100% beeswax and can be used in candle-making and other crafts. And beekeepers apply 100% beeswax to new foundation to encourage the bees to secrete more wax to build more cells to store more honey . . . and the cycle begins again.
Rita Bees collects beeswax from the honey extraction process, purifies it using the solar wax melter method and offers 100% Beeswax in one ounce bars and in a 1 pound package of 16 bars.
