Description

Beeswax can be used in a variety of homemade cosmetic recipes like creams, lip balms, lotions and other beauty products.

Wax is a traditional bee product. Since ancient times people used it to treat wounds and burns. The wax is formed by worker bees and used for building honeycomb cells in which their young are raised with honey and pollen cells being capped for storage. Since it is an amorphous substance, its structure depends on the temperature. At room temperature beeswax has a dense texture and it is very brittle. It melts at a temperature of 62-72 °C, during heating more intense bee honey-like flavor is released. According to Whitcomb's 1946 experiment, 6.66 to 8.80 pounds of honey yields 1 pound of wax. Beeswax is a complex mixture of over 300 different substances.

Note:

When kept in a long term, it is covered with off-white powder – this is normal process, an indication that the product is clean.

Directions:

Can be used for making homemade natural cream, ointment/balm for burns and for candles.
