Bees Wax


Our family is planning on making our own candles and want to make bees wax candles, as they burn longer and are better for you. We also use bees wax for making lip balm and skin balms. Does anyone know of a supplier who sells in bulk and is reasonably priced? I have done some research but usually only find distributors who sell in small quantities, which makes it quite expensive. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

Hi Lanita. I found this site online http://www.beeswaxfrombeekeepers.com/bulkbeeswax.html

Not sure if that is a good price or not, but thought I'd pass it on to you.

Hi Lanita,
We get many supplies from Dadant:

or you can google Dadant bees wax

If you have any lib balm recipes that turn out well, I'd love to see them!
