Rendered and filtered cappings beeswax in 500g blocks.
Cappings wax is the layer of wax the bees build to cover the honey in the comb as it matures. This needs to be removed before the honey within the comb can be spun from the frame.
Our honey and wax is separated and extracted in an MPI accredited facility that operates under a Risk Management Programme (RMP). The facility is export certified and holds EU status.
The wax is then rendered down (using a very gentle heat to liquify it), filtered and poured into moulds. We do not bleach it or add anything to it like synthetic or soy-based waxes. It's just pure New Zealand beeswax suitable for a variety of applications such as food wraps, balms, lotions, cosmetics and wood treatments.
Colours do vary from batch to batch, depending on the pollen collected by the bees. The predominant floral types this season are Manuka, Kanuka, Towai/Kamahi & Rata.
We only sell wax that is the by-product of the honey extraction process. This means that every honey season there is only a limited supply available and it sells quickly. To avoid disappointment later in the year, we suggest purchasing enough to last you through until the following Summer when honey harvesting resumes. During harvest periods (Nov-Mar) stocks will be continually replenished as extractions are completed and the wax is made available to us for rendering. So if you find it's sold out during this time, do check back often.
