I prefer not to use beeswax any more, mostly due to the fact that it leaves quite a bit of residue and will yellow over time. I prefer to use Thread Heaven, which is a readily available silicone based conditioner. It works quite well on silk threads and metallic threads. You just have to make sure you coat it well.
