The incredible properties of beeswax


Beeswax, an ancient and multifunctional natural product, is widely appreciated for its applications in various sectors, from cosmetics to crafts, up to the finishing of wooden products such as those of Armonie in Legno. This article explores its extraordinary properties and use in high-quality craftsmanship, focusing on the benefits it brings to wine displays and cutting boards.

History and Production of Beeswax:

Beeswax is produced by the wax glands of worker bees, which secrete it to build the cells of the hives. This natural substance has a long history of human use; the first evidence dates back to the ancient Egyptians, who used it to seal the tombs of the pharaohs in the pyramids. Over the centuries, beeswax has found use in medicine, art, cosmetics and even food production, as a protective coating agent.

Properties and Benefits:

Beeswax is renowned for its antimicrobial and water-repellent properties, making it ideal for preserving food and protecting surfaces. It is also an excellent stabilizer in emulsions, which is why it is often used in products such as lip balms, lotions and creams. For wood, beeswax not only preserves the natural beauty, but also protects it from moisture and wear, significantly extending the life of the product.

Use in Wood Finishing:

In our Wooden Harmony workshops, we apply beeswax to finish our wine displays and cutting boards. This finish not only improves the appearance of the wood, enriching its color and grain, but also provides a smooth, durable surface that makes cleaning easier. Products treated with beeswax exude a light natural scent that adds an additional level of sophistication and elegance.

Sustainability and Environmental Impact:

Beeswax is an eco-friendly alternative to synthetic finishing products. Being biodegradable and non-toxic, it does not harm the environment, and its use supports sustainable beekeeping practices. This is especially important today, as bees are essential for pollination and biodiversity.


The use of beeswax in our wine displays and cutting boards is not a random choice. It is the result of a deep evaluation of its unique properties and the desire to offer products that are not only functional and beautiful, but also respectful of the environment. Investing in a finished beeswax product means choosing a piece that will continue to provide value and beauty for years.
