How is Beeswax made?
The story of the bee is a marvel of nature. First, bees collect nectar from local flowers and bring it to the hive where it becomes either beeswax or honey. A bee's diet consists primarily of honey and surplus is stored for consumption in the winter when no flowers are available.

The production of beeswax is essential to the bee colony. Wax is used to construct the combs in which the bees raise their brood and into which they store pollen and surplus honey for the winter. Worker bees have special wax-producing glands on their abdomens.
Bees consume honey causing the special wax-producing glands to covert the sugar into wax which is extruded through small pores. The wax appears as small flakes on the bees' abdomen. At this point the flakes are basically transparent and only become white after being chewed. It is in the chewing process that salivary secretions are added to the wax which help soften it and which causes its change in colo
ur to a golden yellow.

Beeswax Uses
Beeswax is commercially used to make fine candles, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, in polishing materials (particularly shoe polish and furniture polish) and as a component of modelling waxes. It is commonly used during the assembly of pool tables to fill the screw holes and the seams between the slates.

Beeswax candles are generally preferred in most Eastern Orthodox churches because they burn cleanly, with little or no wax dripping down the sides and very little smoke. Beeswax is also the main ingredient of the Paschal candle (‘Easter Candle’) and is often the recommended candle for use in churches.

Beeswax has been used as a protective coating for cheese and whilst some cheese-makers have replaced it with plastic, many still prefer natural beeswax so as to avoid unpleasant flavours that can be associated with some plastics. As a food additive, beeswax is known as E901 - glazing agent.


All our bees wax is ethically produced. In particular, the beekeeper of our British wax is an expert in his field and is extremely passionate about his bees and their welfare. When you buy from Aboriginal Arts, you can be assured of a high quality, ethical and low carbon footprint product.
