Like honey, there are many variations in the beautiful colors of beeswax. Depending on where the comb was harvested from, it can be a very light cream color, a soft, warm golden hue, or have very rich brown tones.
Cappings wax has a very light cream color and is the precious wax that covers and protects the honey. Because it is the purest form of all, it is mostly saved for our skin-care hive products.
Candle wax is the beeswax harvested from any extra honeycomb from un-usable frames, damaged comb or burr comb. It is then put into our homemade solar wax-melter. The sun heats the inside of the melting box to a temperature of at least 145 degrees. The beeswax melts and then drips into a catch-pan at the bottom. Once it cools and hardens, we remove it from the drip-pan and use it as needed. Depending on how old or dirty the beeswax is, will depend on how many times we will have to clean the wax before use.
