No More Odorific 'Beeswax' Pellets For Me
Due to my own ignorance, I've been using 'beeswax' pellets/grains in my DIY beauty products for a couple years. I'd always gotten the white wax, so I could add color dyes to certain things. The white wax did not smell like anything. Recently, I decided to try yellow wax pellets - thinking the yellow must be more natural than white, because I imagine if honey isn't naturally white, neither is the wax. Anyhow, the yellow pellets stunk horribly of smoke - almost like an ashtray. There was no way I could use them in my body scrub. The smell was so strong, I doubt the scented essential oils would have masked it. Not wanting to be wasteful, I thought of making emergency candles, but the thought of filling the house with that smell, during a power outage, quickly changed my mind, so I returned them.
At some point, while consulting Google University about why beeswax would smell so awful, I came across a particular informative site (wish I could remember what it was) where, after reading several articles, I began reading some of the comments, and that is how I learned about eBeeHoney - one of the commenters shared a link to this site, and said they will never buy from anyone else. Whoever that person is, thank you for sharing!
I purchased 2 pounds of beeswax. It was on my doorstep within 3 days - super fast delivery! When I opened it, and took a whiff, I actually wanted to take a bite of it. I had no clue that pure beeswax had a scent, let alone a sweet honey-like scent. Yesterday, I used some to make a sugar scrub. It turned out fantastic. My skin felt so much smoother, and better moisturized with this wax, in comparison to what I'd been using. I will absolutely purchase from eBeeHoney again!
