Product Description

The wax is handmade by me personally so I know exactly what goes into it. Everything is completely natural: 100% pure aromatherapy grade Oleum Amygdalae (almond oil), refined British BP/cosmetic grade yellow beeswax and jasmine oil. Pure and simple. Oleum Amygdalae is used for massage so is the perfect component to emulsify the wax and as it is also used to soften, soothe, and re-condition skin it will help keep ‘Rigger’s Finger’ at bay. Of course, beeswax is also a key component in the hand conditioning wax used by mountaineers that some people are using to restore their rope ravaged hands.
 
The Chinese, Arabians and Indians used jasmin oil medicinally, as well as for an aphrodisiac and for other ceremonial purposes. It is said to have many therapeutic properties including use as an anti-depressant and antiseptic. As you can see, it doesn’t just smell nice. Not that smell should be dismissed as incidental. The olfactory sense is one of the most evocative. Don’t you find sometimes a certain smell will provoke powerful emotions or memories? I like to use smell as a trigger like Pavlov and his dogs. It is quite easy to implant this sort of connection. Ask any fan of hemp’s characteristic farmyard odour.
 
NaWax comes in a generous 100ml (4oz approx.) old-style polish tin with a twist key so you don’t have to fight to get it open. Being under the maximum size for airport security, it can travel with you in hand luggage and the tin will withstand anything baggage handlers throw at it if you don’t.
 
Most people treat rope to improve its feel and handling. Waxing tends to minimise shedding and creates a lovely patina on the rope. A big advantage, that not everyone appreciates, is that this reduces friction without significantly affecting the way it holds knots. This means less drag when lifting into suspension, making it easier and increasing safety margins by reducing the load. It also helps to lubricate the fibres. If they rub together without a lubricant, wear is accelerated just like in a car engine. This sort of damage can be caused externally by the sawing action of rope against rope or by the fibres within the rope itself. As in an engine, this wear can lead to catastrophic failure. Keep your ropes in peak shape. Natural fibre ropes have a relatively small safety margin, so you shouldn’t compromise this with neglect.
