Sand what you can, then seal what you have sanded. I use a 50/50 shellac, and alcohol. I’m not at all sure if you can remove the wax. But some heat from a heat gun should melt it into the wood. I would get it hot and take a tooth brush to it while its still hot. I have used a torch on live edge to darken it, but never had wax on it. Heat gun may be a better approach. The sealer will help to keep the hot wax out of the wood pours that are finished. Not sure how it will work. Just my idea on it.
Good luck.
