Naturally fragrant beeswax burns cleaner and longer than petroleum-based waxes. Beeswax Yellow Beads are great for using to make candles as well as lip balms.
There's no smoking since there is no petroleum burning in the candles. Made from 100% pure refined beeswax, this slow burning wax can be used pure or added to paraffin wax to increase burning time, 146°F melting point.
The color is subject to natural variations ranging from light yellow to yellow depending on the batch. Customers can get either color depending on the availability. Color may also appear lighter over time due to a number of factors, including exposure to light, heat, or the presence of efflorescence, which occurs naturally in beeswax when minor components migrate to the surface to create a hazy appearance.
Caution: Overheating this product will impact its delicate fragrance. Please melt at as low a heat as possible while stirring gently, and use as soon as it is melted.

Rating: Practical format and good value, but the smell is overpoweringly strange for use in cosmetic products where the wax makes up a substantial portion of the product - it has a strange smokey and plasticky odour. Sad to say I will not buy this again.

Rating: The pellets form is practical. I used it in lip balm, lotion bar et CP soap. It gives a nice pale yellow color to the mix. However, the smell is too strong for lip balms and lotion bar, and it is not so nice. It does smell a bit more foul than sweet, as others here have noted.
Rating: I was not too happy with the scent of this beeswax, there is a strange chemical scent to it. I am sure it will work great in my recipes however I will try something different with my next order!

Rating: This was my first time buying beeswax from NDA. I order many other products from them which I am very happy with and so decided to try beeswax in my last order. Went with the beads for something new and also based my choice on the other reviews which were mostly positive. Sadly, I am very disappointed in this product. The smell is terrible unfortunately. Not sure if I got a bad batch or what. I love the smell of beeswax but this in no way smells like beeswax. They smelled sour and dirty. I tried using them in a balm that included menthol crystals and peppermint and even with those stronger smelling scents I couldn't mask that sour smell. They also took longer than I expected to melt considering how small they are. Definitely will not order them again and will be discarding the remaining product.
Rating: Absolutely love it smells great melts fast use it in my lotion, creams, and lip balm

Rating: I usually use a block of beeswax, but I won't ever again! This is great! They have a nice, light honey scent and melt fast!

Rating: These beads come from China, and have a terrible sour smell that doesn't even come close to natural beeswax. I based my purchase on the other reviews, however I'm extremely disappointed. I'm giving it two stars because the beads are very clean and melt easily.
Rating: So far I've used these in making several types of lip balm. They melt with ease, the odour is minimal and they are so easy to work with. As a novice I appreciate all of the above.
I called NDA and spoke with Anna as I had placed an order two days prior and forgot to add this to my order. Anna was able to contact Shipping department and add this and another item to my order. What a treat; great service! Thanks Anna, thanks Shipping, Loren and NDA.

Rating: I like the beads because they are easy to work with. They still take a long time to melt, though. Honestly, I can't stand the smell of it. It is a sickly-sweet smell and it's a major turn-off for me. And the smell is really difficult to mask. If you use a floral or sweet fragrance, it comes out too sweet. If you use a woodsy, musky, or deeper fragrance, it just makes it smell 'off'. I'm not going to buy it again because of the smell, but NDA makes it a great product.

Rating: This beewax has a great natural honey scent and is perfect to create very effective lipbalm.
Rating: I have to admit, the scent of this product really surprised me... much stronger than I expected and it didn't take long before I realized it gave me an unpleasant headache =-( I didn't think I'd be so sensitive!
Aside from that, it held up well in lipbalm and moisturizer. I did find it required too much essential oil to mask the wax scent for perfume solids, though... I'll stick to soy wax for that.
In the end, I had to pass the product on to someone else and will opt to use something different in the future.
Rating: The format makes it really user friendly for measurement. Perfect for making balms in any quantity.

Rating: Very strong smelling. It is not as clean as the yellow beeswax that I have been getting from other companies.

Rating: My first time using beeswax. Love that they come in flat 'beads'. Very easy to measure out. Smells of honey which is so lovely.
Will definitely order again!

Rating: It is very diffiuclt to find beeswax pellets elsewhere! This makes creating creams extra easy because measuring the beads is so easy.
Terrific ingredient in a really usable form

Rating: Beeswax beads are very useful in my soapmaking. Its use is so simple that it is worth the price. The smell is soft and comforting. This is a wonderful product. New Direction's beeswax is of high quality and it shows, smells and will be confirmed in your experimentings.

Rating: I just love this product. Prior to discovering the joy of bee's wax beads, I was grating bars of bee's wax by hand for my lipbalms, solid perfumes and salves -- a looong and very boring process, I assure you!! The beads are actually on the flattish side, ie. not round like a marble. They melt very easily and smell wonderful. You won't be disappointed with this product. Great value for the money!
