Description: Our blocks of Beeswax are of the highest quality and are locally produced by busy bees not far from JustIngredients HQ.Each block measure 8 x 2cm. Beeswax has a long historical use, the Ancient Egyptians used it as part of the embalming process, and Ancient Greeks used it to make dolls, whilst the Romans used it to make death masks. Beeswax has a rather long shelf life, beeswax does not get affected by mould or go rancid over time, left unprotected beeswax will get a soft ‘bloom’ on the surface but this does not affect the beeswax at all, it will attract dust and grime so it’s best to keep your beeswax in a sealed container or plastic bag to prevent ‘bloom’ from forming.
