Uses for Beeswax

I have access to a quantity of beeswax that I want to use. What are some uses other than candles please?

Beeswax is also used by seamstresses to wax sewing thread. Usually it comes in a round cake the size of 5 or 6 stacked dollar coins. You run the thread across the edge. As it wears, you get slits around the edge. Costs $2-$3. Also used on knitting machines to wax the thread. Looks like a small spool with hole in center.

If you make chocolates at home, beeswax is a wonderful thing to have. You know how store-bought chocolate doesn't melt in your fingers? The manufacturers use wax (and not necessarily beeswax, either).

Last night I was looking through a Christmas catalog that came in the mail. They adverstised

beeswax ornaments. They looked as though they had been poured into a soap mold. They had a string through them. Very cute. I think the catalog was Chinaberry. Good luck!

1/2 cup melted pures beeswax

1/2 cup melted coconut oil.......

or you can mix together...

1/2 cup melted beeswax

1 1/4 cup olive oil ..

for eitehr recipe directions are the same....

mix together ..melted wax and oil .....will firm up once oil and wax are added together.. remelt ..until liquid..... cool and whip .. until it is a soft mixture........ pour into in cool dry place..should last 4-6 months.

i went a step extra and some of the batches.... a bit of honey and esst. oil to scent on a few...beeswax has its own nice scent.. so really no extra scent is needed.

i have dry rough feet...... i put some on feet whilest it were still warm....and ohhh lala......... felt so good... just so floor dont get all slippery.. i put on socks.........
