This is Beeswax from British Columbia Bees.
This is a 1LB block
This natural substance has and is used all over the world for a wide variety of Bushcraft uses. I highly recommend the tealight and candles for survival kits. The light they give is pure and clean! and the smell is a real plus (this may seem like a small point, but you'd be surprised how that helps in stressful situations NOT to have a stinky, smoky light)
Also its has lots of other great uses for the woodsman...here are just a few , with more info below...
Beeswax is very useful for...
~Survival kits..light and heat
