any beekeeping supplier
[HYPERLINK@www.dadant.com]
http://www.brushymountainbeefarm.com (has everything for soap making)
there a few more out there. You could also see if a local beekeeper sells wax.

when looking for bees wax search for candle supplies or candle wax most places don't list any where else for some reason.

I almost forgot check with your local department stores a lot of them carry it in the canning section because some people use it to seal the jars. I know my wal-mart has it. I'm not sure of the price I think its like 4 or 5 dollars a pound. It will save you a lot on shipping cost if it there.

That cost too much thats almost $1 more then the store and you have to pay for shipping and handling. You got to be kidding. Let me guess your advertising you own eBay sale.

LOL, no not at all! I don't even raise bees, I was just trying to be helpful because that's where I bought my beeswax for sewing.
Don't assume people are trying to be sneaky. For me it works better to have the stuff delivered to my house than going out looking for it.
