We’re here to help you figure out exactly where to buy beeswax. If you’re in the market for some beeswax but don’t know where to start, this post will cover the different options.


How to Find Beeswax Near You

The best way to find beeswax near you is to contact your local apiary (or beekeeper). Beeswax is naturally produced by bees during honey production, and apiaries are often willing to sell their beeswax to you for cheap.

Your local apiaries can be tricky to find, but here are some great resources to get you started.

Or, try Googling one of the following. A map with a list of local beekeepers should show up.

You can also try your local farmer’s market, but you’ll run the risk of finding no beeswax. We recommend using the Local Honey Finder, and then reaching out to the beekeeper.

Don’t buy on Amazon if possible

Sure, there is a plethora of beeswax for sale on Amazon, often sold by local apiaries. The problem with Amazon, however, is they take a massive cut of a seller’s profits, and don’t let the seller build their own audience (like a newsletter). 

For many small businesses, Amazon is a necessary evil. They view Amazon as a necessity because their product gets an insane amount of viewers. However, they would earn more profit if all of those viewers shopped through their website.

If you want to support a local beeswax seller you found on Amazon, we recommend first seeing if they have a website. Ordering from their website means more from your purchase actually goes to the seller, and Amazon doesn’t take any cut. 

If they don’t have a website, check if they have an Etsy store… Etsy takes a small cut too, but it’s smaller than Amazon. If they don’t have an Etsy store either, bite the bullet and order from them on Amazon.

 

Conclusion

So there you have it! Check Local Honey Finder to find a local apiary, or order from one of the websites listed above.
