Frequently Asked Questions About Beeswax

How long does beeswax last? 

Beeswax is renowned for its durability and longevity. When stored properly, away from direct sunlight and in a cool, dry place, beeswax can last indefinitely. 

Its natural properties prevent it from spoiling or deteriorating over time, making it an excellent investment for long-term use in candles, cosmetics, and various household products. 

The stability of beeswax also ensures that products made with it retain their efficacy and quality for years, making it a sustainable choice for consumers looking for products that do not degrade or lose their beneficial properties over time.

What is the difference between honey wax and beeswax? 

The term “honey wax” often refers to the wax cappings that beekeepers remove from honeycombs to extract honey, which still contains bits of honey and may have a softer consistency. 

Beeswax, on the other hand, refers to the purified form of this wax, which has been filtered and cleaned of any honey residues, impurities, and debris. 

The purification process enhances the natural properties of beeswax, making it ideal for a wide range of applications, from candle making to cosmetics. While both are natural products derived from beekeeping, beeswax is generally more versatile due to its purity and stability.

What is the difference between yellow and white beeswax? 

Yellow and white beeswax differ primarily in their processing and intended use

Yellow beeswax is the natural, unbleached form directly obtained after purifying the wax harvested from beehives. It retains its natural color and aroma, making it a favorite for applications where these characteristics are desired, such as in natural candles and balms. 

White beeswax, however, has undergone a bleaching process (either chemical or natural sunlight exposure) to remove its color and reduce its natural scent. This makes it suitable for products where a neutral color and minimal scent are preferred, such as in certain cosmetics and skin care formulations. 

The choice between yellow and white beeswax depends on the specific requirements of the product being made.

What’s the difference between honeycomb and beeswax? 

Honeycomb refers to the hexagonal patterned structure made by bees within their hives, using beeswax. This structure serves multiple purposes, including storing honey, pollen, and providing a nesting space for their larvae. 

Beeswax is the substance secreted by worker bees from glands on their abdomens, which is then used to construct the honeycomb. While honeycomb includes the entire structure, complete with honey or larvae in some cases, beeswax is specifically the material produced by bees for this construction. 

Beeswax can be harvested and used in a variety of products, whereas honeycomb might be used whole for eating or for decorative purposes, showcasing the natural beauty and ingenuity of bee architecture.
