Me, beeswax

Milouin invites the new protagonist of your “Me, product” section. A playful text in which a product or a living material is told in the first person in an impertinent, funny and poetic tone. Me, product.

You can't do without me!
Not without being the world's official supplier of honey, this sweet, sweet nectar with many virtues is also essential for biodiversity because it strongly contributes to the pollination of flowering plants and, therefore, guarantees their survival (just that!).

Me, beeswax, I come from the greatest worker who, when she is in action, raises her temperature beyond 33 degrees and begins to "sweat". And I am nothing but his sweat. These foragers use me to build the cells that will house, among other things, their honey.
Once harvested, I am then clarified in order to be cleansed of all my impurities. My usefulness and my effectiveness are no longer to be proven. There are a multitude of uses in which I work wonders: cosmetics (thanks to my strong healing power), cleaning products to give your wooden furniture an incomparable shine, but also - and above all - in the candle making.

And what better than a beeswax candle?
Banish paraffin candles and let yourself be intoxicated by this sweet smell of honey, a real natural essence without synthetic fragrance. Noble, rare and 100% natural raw material, I give the candle a lifespan four times longer than that of an ordinary candle... And its flame will be even more luminous and brilliant.
As good news never comes alone, and because I am a renewable resource, the wax from a candle that has already been used will also be used to make another candle.

So I may not have royal blood but with all that I have to offer you, I well deserve the title of Sire…of bees!
