Beeswax is a natural, tough wax that is harvested from the caps that forms on each individual cell of a honeycomb. When bee keepers remove the honey from the comb, they must first remove the wax plug. Naturally, the wax is very tough so it is often combined with other oils to soften and become more pliable. Beeswax can be used in many, many ways and is very popular among those who prefer natural crafts.

      I once was able to buy bees wax in sheets which weren't sheets of honeycomb. I for the life of me can't find who I got it from so I can get more. They're great for rolling into candles. Lots of options here for getting bees wax supplies.
