How we refine your beeswax
Every time we harvest honey we also collect a small amount of beeswax as we uncap the honeycombs. I refine the beeswax using only rainwater and filter it through cloths. This beeswax is unbleached and untreated. I sell blocks of beeswax for you to use in DIY projects and I use it myself to make beeswax wraps, balms and candles.
How you can use your beeswax
Natural beeswax has an abundance of uses. You may be interested in making your own beeswax wraps or candles, or perhaps you’d like to try your hand at beeswax salves or balms. We filter our beeswax so that it is ready for use and available in 200-gram packs of small blocks (8-12g). The colour often varies because it is an unbleached, natural product. ...
How can I use natural beeswax?
Beeswax is a versatile natural product that can be used for many different DIY and craft projects, including:
- Beeswax wraps are easy to make and all you need is some cotton fabric cut to size (add gum rosin for tackiness and jojoba oil for flexibility, see recipe here)
- Beeswax candles – either in jars or using a silicon mould (instructions here) are very easy to make, you just need a suitable wick and you will have a sweet smelling beeswax candle. https://eight-acres.com.au/blogs/news/how-to-make-beeswax-candles
- Beeswax balms and salves are very easy to make using a suitable oil (such as olive oil, sweet almond oil or macadamia oil), herbs and essential oils, with a small amount of beeswax to thicken the salve. You can find out more here. You can also make a simple lip balm or body butter using beeswax.
- Make natural crayons – just add pigment to beeswax to make your own crayons
- Other uses for beeswax include – to make a bow string for archery, to made natural firestarters, to make a mouthpiece for a didgeridoo, to lubricate everything from zippers to wooden drawers and even drill bits!

Is It Safe to Use Beeswax for Candles?
Beeswax is safe, biodegradable, and non-toxic. Our handmade pure beeswax candles have a pleasant natural honey scent – we don’t add anything to them other than the cotton wick.
- Beeswax candles are long-burning. Our candles are available in two sizes. The larger candle will burn for approximately 12 hours, and the smaller one for about 5.
- Since they are handmade, bear in mind that no two candles will be exactly the same; there are likely to be minor variations.
- As with any candle, be vigilant. Do not leave the candles lit in an empty room, and make sure that you place them on a heat-resistant surface prior to use. When about a quarter inch of wax is remaining, you should stop using the candle.
