Beeswax Facts

Honeybees ingest honey to make beeswax.  Once they ingest the honey, the bees hang inside the colony for 24 hours while their bodies convert the honey into wax.  The was is released from 8 glands on the underside of the bee's abdomen.  When the wax leaves the bee's body and comes in contact with the air, it causes the wax to solidify into dinner plate shaped flakes.  The bees then grab these wax plates with their legs, bring them up to their mandibles, and chew them to soften the wax.  They then carefully mold the wax into the perfect honeycomb structure.

Beeswax cleans the air!

Burning beeswax produces negative ions that circulate in the room and attracts pollutants.  Pet dander, dust, odors, and other toxins are captured!
