In addition to heat as described above…
you may try freezing, the wax will be very hard and can usually be removed with a dental pick. An old stiff toothbrush may remove most when frozen and be quicker that the dental pick.
For natural edged I like a low luster natural oil finish (not gloss like lacquer or shellac). If oiled any small particles of wax left should just blend in.
