For each pound of beeswax provided by a honey bee, the bee visits 33 million flowers and consumes 10 pounds of honey. It secretes the wax from its abdomen, and then uses it to construct brood and honeycomb.
From squeaky doors and drawers that get stuck to soap making and beauty products, beeswax has countless uses for household and craft projects. Listing is for 1 bar (1 oz) of natural, filtered beeswax.
Over time beeswax develops "bloom", a white powdery fog on the surface of the wax. It is not a flaw but a natural occurrence of the wax and is easily removed with a damp cloth, renewing the golden sheen.
