Did You Know? Blooming Beeswax

Did you know that beeswax blooms? When beeswax is stored in a cool place it develops a frost-like appearance on its surface, much like chocolate does. This bloom doesn't affect the burning quality of the wax and is quite easy to remedy, if you should choose to do so. Simply wave the heat of a hair drier or heat gun across the surface of the candle. It doesn't take much heat to restore the deeper color of the wax, so take care not to melt the surface. This process works all beeswax, dyed or natural, and only beeswax. Keep your colors deep and vibrant with a little swish of heat.
