Beeswax is a by-product of honey harvesting. It is a natural wax produced by individual honey bees of the genus Apis. Beeswax has non-allergenic properties that can make it a useful skin protector from various airborne allergies. It also provides slight anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant qualities which can benefit the body. Each balm is blended with other natural flavours and oils, to add to the health benefit of the balm.
One of the oldest and easily recognizable scents around, is sandalwood. It holds high regard in Ayurveda and its origins are deeply rooted in many traditions in India.
