Here are a few uses for the Beeswax Queen to ease drawer runners, curtain tracks and zips. It will fill scratches or worm holes in wood. You can use it to wax thread and string. The wax melts at 65 degrees C. It may develop a “bloom” if kept at low temperatures – this will rub off with a cloth, or if stored in a warm place.
Beeswax is produced as a liquid by young bees, which secrete wax from special glands. On contact with air, the wax hardens to form small scales. Naturally white, the wax is coloured by pigments in the pollen which bees collect. About one million wax scales make 1 kg of wax.
Tucked away between the hills of West Dorset and the sea sits the landscape that gives us distinctive honey and beeswax. Born from a love of the land and a desire to make a living from it, Filberts has grown from three generations of British farmers.
Our proximity to nature runs through the heart of why the business started in 2008. From beeswax balms and salves to candles and polishes, we make functional and sustainable beeswax products with a quirky sense of style. Made for those who love a natural way of living.
