As mykeal has observed, check out the local beekeepers. FWIW I use beeswax because its free, not because it's "better".

I started out with some "Wunderlube 2000?" mainly because it was what the local store had when I was getting start up supplies, but I found it too runny, particularly in hot weather. Then I tried Crisco shortening, which melted & ran even easier! The 60/40 Crisco solid & beeswax seems to be a better blend as far as melting temps go.
