These beeswax flakes have a wide range of uses such as wood polish, for candles, in models and during the preparation of cosmetics.

As a wood polish, it helps nourish the wooden surfaces while also producing a water repellent layer that can help protect the wood.

Since it melts at around 64 degrees it’s very malleable and useful. It’s sanitising and moisturising ability gives it so many uses around the house.

Beeswax is an important component of many of our day to day products which proves its versatility. Unlike many other products, it is stored in kraft bags which are plastic-free. It’s all produced and packaged in western Europe so has a low carbon footprint while it’s being transported.

Eco Plus

Beeswax has been used since ancient times. Considered a noble and precious material, beeswax has been found in the tombs of several pharaohs and in Roman times was used as a currency to pay taxes. It is also mentioned in Greek mythology in the story of Icarus  who used wax to glue his wings and escape from his prison labyrinth but the wax melted from the heat of the sun and it all ended very badly!
