Mouldmaster Beeswax has been formulated for the use of candle and polish making. Supplied in a beaded form to help it easily and accurately weighted. The pellets are quicker and easier to melt than in a solid block and give a more consistent result. Beeswax is a natural wax produced by honey bees. The wax is formed into scales by eight wax-producing glands in the abdominal segments of worker bees, which are discarded at the hive. Beeswax candles are superior to other wax candles, because they burn brighter and longer, do not bend, and burn "cleaner”
Candle-making has long involved the use of beeswax, which burns readily and cleanly and this material was traditionally prescribed for the making of the Paschal candle or "Easter candle".
