Additional information

Beeswax has been used as an antiseptic and research shows that it was used to treat wounds in ancient times. The ancient Egyptians, Persians and Chinese used it thousands of years ago for embalming, in paintings, as a cosmetic and medicine.

It is produced by the glands in the abdomen of worker bees. Worker bees collect the nectar of the flowers and carry it to the hive where it is turned into either honey or wax. Beeswax is used to build the walls of the honeycomb. The pollen and surplus honey are stored in the honeycomb. Beeswax is white at first and darkens over time.

The “Oros Machaira” Beeswax is raw, affordable, and can be used to make candles, cosmetics, soaps, ointments and other natural products. You can buy it online as it is hard to find it in supermarkets in Cyprus.
