Unfiltered Beeswax chunks
I made body balm to protect my skin. It turned out great. The natural smell of this beeswax doesnt really smell so much like honey like the filtered beeswax I use, but the scent I added carried nicely. Overall, I love it.
beeswax for candles
Because this wax is unfiltered, I wouldn't recommend it for candle making. I found that the tiny particulate matter in the wax prevented proper burning, if they even burned at all, and I threw out a lot of my partially burned candles made from this wax. I bought a filtering system from Wicks & Wax in Burnaby and filtered out the rest of the beeswax I had purchased from Organic Matters, but even after three filters, the candles came out ineffectual. I think that same particulate matter would make excellent additions to the body butters and salves that people make. But as a long time candle maker, this wax didn't work for me.
Thanks for the feedback Donna - We will soon be offering filtered beeswax pellets - check back soon, potentially this product will work a lot better for your needs!We have had success making candles without wax, however well filtered could definitely make for a cleaner burning candle.Best, Om
