Description

Modern beekeepers - take notice! Here we have the answer to one of the most common questions related to beekeeping: what do I do with all of this beeswax?

In fact, the possibilities are seemingly endless! Since beeswax has multiple holistic and decorative uses, projects can vary from beeswax balms and beeswax creams, to household items like the classic beeswax candle. Beeswax Alchemy is your first step towards using excess beeswax to make beautiful, wellness boosting gifts for friends, family, and even yourself.

Not a beekeeper? Don’t worry, this guide works just as well with store bought beeswax!

The DIY beeswax projects are almost never ending, so grab some beeswax and get fired up!

The author

Petra Ahnert is the creative force behind Beehive Alchemy (beehivealchemy.com), an artisan soap, body care, and home goods business. After a serendipitous meeting with a beekeeper at the library in 2002, Petra soon had a couple hives of her own and extra honey to sell. Of course, with the honey, comes beeswax, too, so she sought out ways to make good use of the wax she had on hand. Since that time, Petra has first looked to her own life and the products she uses to replace them with items she could make herself with her extra honey and beeswax. Eventually, those products made their way into the product line-up for Beehive Alchemy.
