Yellow Beeswax Pellets
Beeswax is a natural substance generated and secreted by honeybees. It is hard and breakable when cold but soft and pliable when heated. Just like honey, Beeswax varies in colour, depending on various factors related to the bees themselves as well as the flowers from which the honey is derived. Beeswax is known for its long, slow, clean, smokeless burn. It not only exudes the aroma of honey, but it also produces comparatively brighter flames, facilitates the elimination of airborne pollutants, and promotes the overall health of body and mind. Beeswax hydrates, conditions, soothes and calms the skin. It exfoliates, repairs damage, promotes the skin’s regeneration, diminishes the appearance of the signs of ageing, soothes itchiness and irritation, and creates a hydrating, long-lasting protective barrier against environmental pollutants. Used in hair, Beeswax nourishes, conditions, and softens the strands while and promoting the hair’s lustre.
