Floral waxes are solid, aromatic plant waxes that are obtained during the production of floral concretes and absolutes. Floral waxes are comprised of the natural wax and precious aromatics present within the botanical that they are derived from. No additional waxes or fragrances are added.
Our Magnolia Floral Wax is white to pale yellow in color. It possesses an intoxicatingly rich, sensual, floral aroma. While the floral wax is highly fragrant, it is not as intensely concentrated in aroma as Magnolia Absolute.
Magnolia Floral Wax makes an exquisite aromatic addition to natural solid perfumes, balms, creams and other solid or semi-solid formulations. It makes a wonderful vegan substitution in recipes that call for beeswax. It can be slightly softer than beeswax, so experimentation may be necessary.
Floral waxes are firm at normal room temperature and melt when heated. The consistency of each floral wax can vary slightly. Generally speaking, however, they have a consistency somewhat similar to that of a firm vegetable butter. As with vegetable butters, floral waxes may begin melting when stored or transported at warmer temperatures. To ensure that our floral waxes do not leak during transit, we package our floral waxes in jars for sizes up to 3.5 wt. oz. For larger sizes, the floral wax is cut and packaged in a ziploc bag.
