Takeaway: Nice quality, fresh scented, smooth textured bees wax. Easy to work with.

The bees wax is shipped as a 1 lb block in a vacuum sealed bag. The block measures about 5” square and 1.25” thick. Upon weighing it I found it was actually a bit over 17 oz. It has the same deep yellow color as in the product photos and a sweet natural honey aroma to it. I did not notice any off smells from my block. It has a dry, dense texture. I use it primarily for coating tools like leather punches and making the occasional lip balm. The lip balm recipe I use is one part bees wax to two parts coconut oil. The block is a bit tough to cut but I use a sharp heavy cleaver which works well. It also helps to heat a metal knife for cutting. The wax melts readily over medium heat in a double boiler setup. It also cools and solidifies quickly once removed from the heat, so I use a trivet and keep a heat gun nearby if it starts to harden too fast. The final texture is smooth and buttery and helps keeps my lips hydrated and protected from the elements.
