A by-product of the honey production process, beeswax (or beewax) is used in a multitude of applications, from candle making to skincare applications. N-Essentials sells beeswax in bead form as it is easier to melt and weigh. It is impermeable to water and it isn’t affected by mildew. It also has a melting point between 62 and 65 degrees Celsius and is pliable at 38 degrees Celsius.


Beeswax is one of the most versatile natural products you can have at home nowadays. As previously mentioned, they are secreted by honey bees in building honeycombs. This makes them a completely natural substance.

It is composed of esters, fatty acids, and more. As such, it can be reused for as many times possible as it does not easily spoil and become rancid. The wax itself comes with different colours including almost white, bright yellow, dark yellow, and light amber.

In candle making, beeswax has already built its reputation as an excellent key ingredient in most luxurious candles. They burn longer than other regular ingredients such as candelilla, paraffin and soy wax, and can be used up to 7 hours. Its naturally sweet-smelling characteristic makes it a good essential to create a relaxing atmosphere. Perfect for use in aromatherapy applications!

In skincare, beeswax is commonly used as a thickening agent, binder, emulsifier, emulsion stabiliser, emulsifying surfactant, skin-conditioning agent, and humectant. These applications may sound technical but these are actually present in most cosmetic products such as face moisturisers, body lotions, and makeup. Aside from that, it also works to soothe skin issues and allows it to breathe without clogging the pores.

As we all know, clogged pores are the often the cause of many skin impurities. It is full of dirt, sebum, and dead skin cells that accumulate over time. To prevent this, it would be best to cleanse it and look for safer and healthier products.

Be advised that when it comes to producing makeup products, make sure to use it properly by following the manufacturer’s recommended usage. Continued use may promote a soothed, moisturised-looking skin.

    I’ve never purchased shop bought skin care/hair care/cleaning, products, only using recipes passed down through the women in our family through the generations, and this beeswax does the beauty recipes total justice. It’s fantastic!
