Beeswax - the multi function stuff

After draining the delicious honey from the mashed up comb, there is left much raw beeswax.
To use the beeswax, I have to clean it, melt it, filter it, and transform it into blocks of beeswax that can be stored.

Female worker bees produce wax from the glands on their abdomens. They use the wax to build honeycomb cells, where they house pollen, honey and baby bees. For 100 g beeswax the bees need energy, about 300 to 900 g of honey.

Beeswax has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-allergenic, and germicidal antioxidant properties, which makes it absolutely wonderful for wound feeling. Beeswax is also known for locking in moisture, protecting skin from environmental factors and fostering skin cells. Because of itís moisture locking properties, it is naturally nourishing and effectively softens skin.

My Uses for Beeswax:

1. Pure Beeswax Candles:

Beeswax candles burn brighter, remove toxins from the air and give off a sweet, warming.
I make molded tea lights that swim on the water and dipped candles.
Sometimes I make foundations and roll them to beeswax candles.

Bees donate us with much gifts to improve our live.
I made a new video for stress management and hope it will help many people to relax.
Please share this video with everybody you know.

2. Beauty and Personal Care Products:

It is true, beeswax plays a huge role when making your own beauty and personal care products! Things like lip balm, skin balm, cream against rough skin and others, all have beeswax in it to help protect and moisturize your skin. Additional I use Honey and Propolis and natural oils for balms.

3. Beeswax packing:

Warmed beeswax has excellent warming properties, when applied against inflammations of muscles, nerves and
joints and others. For this reason it is possible beeswax packing to be used for thermo-therapy.
For this purpose I make an application of soft cotton cloth with beeswax for applying i. e. after muscle, nerve and tendon inflammation due to colds, lumbago, neuritis, mialgitis, arthrosis, arthritis.

4. Beeswax as Lubricant in the Home:

Do you have a sliding glass door, window sill or drawer that does not move freely? Just rub some beeswax on the area and the ease of opening should change drastically. You can also rub beeswax on nails or screws to help them move easier, on zippers if they are stuck, , etc..

5. Wood Treatment:

I combine a food grade natural oil with melted beeswax to condition wood bowls and butcher blocks.

6. Leather-Waterproofing:

Rubbing beeswax mixed with natural oil over leather shoes and other leather products helps to protect against all types of weathering including water. You can even put beeswax on matches to help keep them dry if you are out fishing, boating or skiing.

7. Prevent Rusting:

Coating things like hand tools, cast iron pieces and shovels to prevent them from rusting out. You can even rub beeswax on the wooden handle of your shovel to help protect against wear and tear.

8. Furniture Polish:

I use a mixture with linseed oil, mineral spirits and beeswax to polish furniture.

9. Cleaning the Iron:

If the iron is beginning to get gummy or scorched, I use a homemade iron cleaner with beeswax. Itís chemical-free, economical and sustainable!

10. Bronze and Copper preservation:

Bronze and Copper should be coated twice a year with a solution consisting of pure beeswax and of pure pine turpentine..

Beeswax and beeswax-products are available on request.
