This is EXACTLY how beeswax is made

Last week, I made a homemade body salve with beeswax.

And that got me thinking: what is beeswax (and how is it harvested)?

Unlike vegetable waxes, beeswax is the only naturally occurring wax. Most waxes (like soy wax or paraffin) are manufactured using a toxic chemical process. But, beeswax is wax, right out of the beehive.

Beeswax is used to make:

Beeswax bars
Beeswax candles
Beeswax healing sauve
Beeswax hand cream
Beeswax all-purpose polish
Beeswax boot waterproofing
