Yet another benefit of having treatment free hives, treatment free beeswax! Untreated hives means: no pesticides, miticides, or medications used inside the hive, so no chemical residue in your candles, balms, body, or craft projects! Our beeswax is an all natural product, therefore color can vary slightly depending on the frame that the wax came from making each bar unique in color. If you have a preference, please specify when ordering. Discount offered for 16 or more ounces, contact us under Sweet Services to discuss.
