Our Beeswax is made by our bees. We do not buy and re-sell beeswax from other sources. The honeybees make the wax from glands in their abdomens. They use the wax to make honeycomb, where they store their honey and raise their brood. We collect our wax mostly from the wax cappings that must be cut off the honeycomb before extracting the honey. We melt the wax down and skim off impurities (slum) during the rendering process.
