Our organically crafted Beeswax Absolute, also colloquially referred to as Honey Absolute or Beeswax Essential Oil, is extracted from the honeycomb wax (Cera alba) of bees (Apis mellifera) in India. The absolute has a sumptuous, mild honey-sweet, floral aroma with a smooth green, hay-like body note, and a mild, waxy undertone.
Available worldwide, and used in many diverse applications, Beeswax is a natural wax produced by honey bees. Beeswax forms the honeycomb walls within a nest. Honey and pollen are stored in the honeycomb, a mass of hexagonal cells. Once beekeepers have harvested the honey, the honeycombs are available for extraction of beeswax. The quality of the beeswax used in the Flavor and Fragrance industry is critical. We have sourcing agreements with suppliers that guarantee a premium quality, free of any kind of additives, chemicals or pesticides.
REPORTED BENEFITS AND USES
Due to its excellent natural fixative value and familiar gourmand aroma, Beeswax Absolute is extensively used in the perfumery industry where similar notes occur (as a modifier), or where
rough or chemical corners of synthetic materials must be rounded off. Beeswax has natural fixative property with a soft long lasting vanilla like undertone. It also makes an excellent choice as a rich and exotic fragrance in skin and hair care products.
In skincare, Beeswax Absolute is used to hydrate, condition, soothe, and calm the skin. It exfoliates, repairs damage, promotes the skin's regeneration, diminishes the appearance of the signs of aging, and creates a hydrating, long-lasting protective barrier against environmental pollutants. The antioxidant, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties of Beeswax Absolute can also help treat topical skin ailments, such as eczema and rosacea.
In aromatherapy, Beeswax Absolute is believed to promote overall physical and mental well-being by invigorating the body with increased energy, reducing stress, strengthening focus, helping decrease physical pain, and regulating blood pressure.
Safety-Always perform a skin patch test for allergies.
