Melt over a flame or in a spoon or melting device. 

Not for use with a glue gun.

This line of J.Herbin wax is Old World traditional, it is
not designed to withstand the postal process.
We highly recommend this gorgeous wax for use with hand delivered items, gift wrap, certificates, or to create a seal which will crack upon bending.

If you would like to use a J.Herbin wax for mailing,
we suggest their Supple Wax & Pearlescent Wax lines.

As this security wax is sensitive to shock, the batons may crack during shipment from France.
If the batons break into pieces, our melting spoon can easily hold small bits for melting over a flame.

J. Herbin Cire Banque is the standard in sealing waxes, and
has remained unchanged since 1670.

Generations of remarkable people, from Louis XIV to Coco Chanel, have used this traditional sealing wax, and it is well known around the world as one of the highest quality sealing waxes ever made.

J. Herbin was a sailor, and from his many journeys to India he brought back to Paris formulas for manufacturing sealing wax.
His special lacquer formula improved the quality of the seals in adhesion and neatness, helping him to become famous throughout the kingdom.

Then as today, sealing wax was used for documents and correspondence, but also in decoration and bottling.
J. Herbin has supplied Chanel from its beginning with wax used for finishing touches on their perfume bottles.

Recommended for Advanced Sealers

As always, there was fantastic shipping times, and extremely high quality! Even wrapped in my little letter seals box, it stands out for its rustic and high quality. I would recommend this for advanced users. As someone a bit new to letter seals I found it a bit hard to work with; it dries incredibly fast and has a pretty high melting point. Even as I'm pouring it, I barely have enough time to place my stem before it hardens. But! None the less, I love the quality and color - incredibly high quality. Makes me feel official!! >3 J.Herbin Cire Banque Traditional Breakable Sealing Wax - Single Sticks J.Herbin Cire Banque Traditional Breakable Sealing Wax - Single Sticks Review

nice to find REAL sealing wax

I use this wax to inlay patterns in the handles of wooden spoons - as was done in the 18th and 19th centuries in Brittany, France. It is a joy to use and gives perfect results J.Herbin Cire Banque Traditional Breakable Sealing Wax - Single Sticks Review

Amazing sealing wax

The item is in really good quality, very recommend to buy it. And really good service! The only thing to improve is the pictures on the website, more pictures of each wax because it's small resolution and the color is a little bit different because the resolution.
