What is Beeswax?
A natural wax produced by honey bees, beeswax has been used to create candles for thousands of years. The oldest surviving beeswax candles were found in the almannic graveyard of Oberflacht, Germany, dating back to the 6th century A.D., though documentation of beeswax candles can be found as early as 40 B.C. from the Han Dynasty of China.
