I've ordered from this company many times. Always pleased with their service. They are a Canadian company but do ship everywhere and with the exchange rate...

I get my block of bee's wax at Webster Flea Market in Webster, Florida. I am going on Monday and would be glad to pick up some extra blocks. Mrs. Hill charges $6.50 for a 3 lb block.

This natural wax, comes in blocks or sheets. It can also be bought as natural, unbleached or bleached white. Beeswax possesses a natural honey fragrance. And many candle makers like to add it to a paraffin mix base because it lengthens the burning time of the candle.

Are you in Oakwood (Butler,TX), TX (Zone 8b)??

Thanks,

How much for shipping? I read they ship by the pound. That would be $44.00 to ship to me. Zone 5

oilsbynature is no longer in business.

Columbus foods is an excellent source for soaping oil supplies.
