    A long-used bee product

    „Beeswax used to be almost irreplaceable for humans, especially beeswax candles, which were the only source of light. Wax has also been used for sealing ships, waxing, and in the arts.“

    Treatment of furniture and wood

    Treating wood with beeswax is a completely natural way of preserving the quality of furniture and other wood products. Beeswax is also an important product when restoring furniture.

    It is easy. Carefully apply the beeswax on the furniture and then polish it with a cloth. The way of application of beeswax on wood always depends on the type and age of the furniture.

    Treatment and impregnation of shoes and leather products

    Beeswax creates a protective layer that protects against bursting, mechanical damage and moisture. When compared to other types of impregnation, the usage of wax guarantees that this method is not harmful, it is even environmentally friendly. Apply the beeswax to the leather and heat gently with a hair dryer.

    You can even make your own impregnation cream, for example according to the recipe of Dr. med. Titěra (Bee products without myths): Dissolve two parts of wax and one part of mutton tallow in a water bath, then mix. Apply the cold mixture to the leather. The tallow can also be replaced by vaseline.

    An easier variant: dissolve beeswax and oil (preferably fish or linseed oil) in a weight ratio of 1: 3 in a water bath. If you are not satisfied with the consistency, add a little more wax or oil.

    Encaustic or decorating Easter eggs

    Encaustic is the popular painting technique of Hanka Plevová, the founder of our company. It means painting with hot wax with the help of an iron. Beeswax has been used for encaustic already in ancient Egypt and is also very popular nowadays because it is simple and the resulting images are quite original.

    What is beeswax

    And how it is used by the bees? Beeswax is the basic material for the production of honeycombs and is made with a metabolic transformation of the saccharides and pollen in the digestive and wax-producing organs of the bees.

    Jak vzniká včelí vosk, včelí plástve Pleva

    Beeswax is produced by younger bees, workers, when they are 12–18 days old. The wax glands are located at the bottom of their abdomen. The glands are created as pairs on the abdominal scales between the third and the sixth segment. The queens and drones do not have these glands.

    The secretion of the glands cures quickly and turns into white wax scales. Bees hanging in a „grape“ help each other collect the scales from the abdomen and chew them. They add secretion to make the wax plastic and supple. Then they build honeycombs from the wax.
