One ounce bars of beeswax collected from our hives and cleaned in a solar extractor. The hives are located in a community apiary supported by our local club on agriculturally zoned land. The wax is extracted from individual frames, with raw wax separated from the residual honey in a solar extractor. As it melts it filters through paper. It is softened to pour into a mold. At room temperature it requires a couple of hours to cool beeswax to a temperature where the bars separate from the mold. The color of beeswax depends on the age and the temperature at which it is melted for processing.
All beeswax is initially white when secreted by bees, then often turns to a light yellow when pollen and honey are stored in the wax cells. Older wax turns brown as a result of accumulating propolis with age. Yellow wax will also darken if heated to more than 170 degrees Fahrenheit. This wax is well suited for conditioners, such as our leather or wood conditioner, or polishes.
