descriptionNOTE: Large quantities/sizes of any product may have to be special ordered. If that's the case, customers must allow a minimum of 10 business days for a new supply to arrive at our warehouse. Some products could arrive sooner, some later. Cancellations are not allowed because an item becomes 'out of stock' soon after the customer places the order, the 'out of stock' product will ship as soon as it arrives at our warehouse. What do we consider large quantities/sizes of our products? Some examples are products classified as bulk or that include the word 'bulk' in the product's name, products offered in 5+ lbs., expensive EO's offered in 1+ lb. and certain quantities of packaging materials. If it's important for you to know before placing an order if a certain quantity's in stock, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and inquire before placing the order. The nature of our business is such that what is in stock in the morning may not be in stock in the afternoon. All products are subject to prior sale.
NOTE: If we unexpectedly encounter a problem with the packaging material used to pack the product you ordered (defective/missing part or delivery to us delayed for any reason including road/weather conditions or the manufacturer has a manufacturing delay, etc.) we cannot ship until the correct packaging part/material is delivered to us. Please understand this and do not place an order if this paragraph presents a problem for you. In 20 years in business we've only had one instance where delivery to us of empty 35 lb. pails/lids was delayed a couple of days. (Rev. 6/19/18)
Beeswax Absolute is a honey-colored waxy substance with a honey-like aroma which is obtained directly from beeswax; the raw material is cleaned, melted and strained to remove impurities. The aroma of this absolute will vary based on the source of the beeswax and will not smell the same from batch to batch. While in the past we have offered beeswax absolute which was very thick and not pourable, our current stock is not as thick and is pourable. The current stock’s color is darker than previous stocks and is not transparent.
This absolute blends well with jasmine, helichrysum and chamomile. Absolutes are used mainly in perfumery and not in aromatherapy. Should this product arrive at its destination as a solid due to cold weather while in transit, please loosen the cap and place the bottle/jar in warm water to allow it to liquefy being careful not to allow any water to get inside the container. Absolutes are alcohol soluble. In France this absolute is known as Absolue Cire d'Abeille. INCI: Apies millifera.

Absolutely Lovely Beeswax Absolute
The nicest beeswax absolute I've found and at an excellent price. It is solid until warmed and opens out into a rich, warm "hive on a sunny day" fragrance. Just lovely!
Reviewer: Ulrike Schellhammer (Dayton, OH) 12.18.2013
This is a very hard to find absolute, and this is by far the best price you will find. The consistency is VERY easy to work with once you warm it up just a little. It has a long lingering scent that changes over time as part of a solid perfume. The notes are complex, both sweet and herbaceous, much like the meadow where I imagine the bees collected their gold.

i like it
I can't say I'm too experienced with beeswax absolute, since it's my first time purchasing it -- but it is most definitely thick and heavy in consistency and odor, which makes it great in grounding a scent and adding a little bit of body.

The Bee's Knees
I originally requested this as a sample and immediately fell in love. I had to order some immediately. It has the warmest, sweetest scent and an underlying floral/tea note. It's a complex base note and I'm looking forward to playing with it in my blends! The oil does have to be warmed in a water bath to become liquid and your blend has to be in a water bath as well to have it incorporate into the other oils. Otherwise you'll immediately see the globules of absolute separating. It has a strong scent but for my uses not strong enough to dilute it with another oil or fractionated coconut befor use. I like it straight and undiluted. It's truly lovely and this price is wonderful.

Warm base note
Very pleasant stuff, adds a subtle warm, comforting note to the base of a perfume. Very thick, good as a fixative. As usual, CG's quality is high and prices reasonable.
OUT OF STOCK ISSUES: If a customer orders a large quantity of a product and all of the product is not in stock when the order is entered into our system, once the new stock arrives we will ship separately whatever quantity we may owe the customer. Most of our restocking orders arrive at our warehouse 5-7 business days after we place a restocking order, sometimes sooner. Should the distiller or vendor inform us restocking will take longer than 7 business days, we’ll promptly notify the customer.
Please note that we do not allow order cancellations for any reason and we don’t allow removal/cancellations of products which become partially or completely out of stock after the customer places an order.
