Pure beeswax chips collected and refined from cappings.
Cappings are the top layer of wax that beekeepers remove when extracting honey. Bees add the top layer of wax once nectar has completely transitioned into honey.
We refine our beeswax by melting cappings in a vegetable steamer and straining out large impurities with cheesecloth. Our beeswax usually undergoes this process twice.
