The healing benefits of beeswax have been recognised since the beginning of civilisation. Discovered in pharaohs’ tombs, Roman ruins and sunken Viking ships, beeswax is believed to have been used to treat cavities, smallpox, wounds and burns.

This amazing substance is produced by female honeybees for storing the colony’s honey. The process of creating beeswax also contributes to the production of other forms of raw honey, including our very own UMF Mānuka honey.

Benefits of Beeswax

New Zealand beeswax has natural antibacterial properties and is commonly used to soothe skin conditions by assisting with inflammation and pain relief.

Natural Skincare

Beeswax can help to create a protective layer on the skin, helping to seal in moisture and guard against environmental damage. The vitamin A found in beeswax helps to soothe and soften skin, while supporting cell regeneration.

The solidifying properties of NZ beeswax make a wonderful, natural addition to cosmetics. Combine honey or coconut oil with beeswax to create your own lip balms, creams and lotions.

How to Use Beeswax

Making Candles

Consider purchasing beeswax moulds from NZ specialty stores and make your own 100% natural, environmentally friendly, non-toxic candles. The long-burning candles will fill your home with a natural honey aroma.

Beeswax Wraps

In NZ, using beeswax wraps is a versatile, natural alternative to plastic wrap and tinfoil. You can use natural wax wraps for the following:

  • Save half a fruit, such as an apple/lemon/avocado for later
  • Pack fresh berries or grapes in a lunchbox
  • Store a snack in your purse/pocket/briefcase
  • Wrap a sandwich
  • Roll up baked goods or a loaf of bread
Other Incredible Uses for Beeswax Wraps
  • Encase soap while travelling
  • Cover the top of open jars, carafes or bottles
  • Use to graft two plants together
  • Polish granite and furniture
  • lubricate squeaky furniture and hard to open windows and door joints
  • Grease baking pans and barbeque grills
  • Coat tools and cast iron to prevent rust
  • Make your own cheese wax

How to Store

Pure, natural beeswax remains solid at room temperature.

How long does beeswax last? Natural beeswax doesn’t spoil, but it can develop a powder coating when stored at cooler temperatures. Use a blow dryer or soft rag to remove the ‘bloom’ from a block of beeswax. Wrap it in plastic - or a beeswax wrap - to prevent dust from sticking to it.

Beeswax wrap

The quality was excellent, but it was hard to grate because of the size of beeswax for making beeswax wraps.

The gift of bees

I ordered the beeswax to grate & melt with coconut oil & lavender to make homemade body moisturiser bars as Christmas gifts for our neighbours and the teachers at my sons school. Everyone loved them & the quality of the beeswax was awesome and smelled of rich honey.

Used this beeswax to make kawakawa balm to go in my home made Xmas hampers, everybody loved it! Plus the amount you get for this price is the cheapest I could find. Great product!
