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!
