BEESWAX ALCHEMY 

Considered the miracle of the beehive and used by humans for 8,000 years, beeswax remains a vital ingredient to society and is still used as the foundation for many household products in the twenty-first century. In Beeswax Alchemy, learn from apiarist and entrepreneur Petra Ahnert about the history of beeswax, as well as tips and techniques on how to mold it into beautiful, reusable creations.

An introduction details the different ways in which beeswax has been used throughout history, as well as the products that contain it today. You'll also find an explanation of the different types of beeswax, as well as insider tips on working with beeswax, followed by step-by-step instructions for making candles, balms, salves, creams, scrubs, soaps, ornaments, art, and more out of beeswax. Color photos illustrate the processes and show finished results throughout. Among the useful and beautiful things you'll learn to make:

  • Hand-Dipped Birthday Candles
  • Lip Balm with Cocoa Butter
  • Rosebud Salve
  • Solid Natural Perfumes
  • Honey, Oats, and Beeswax Soap
  • Beeswax Luminaries

Whether you are an expert beekeeper or experimental crafter, Beeswax Alchemy is the best guide for anyone aspiring to make natural treasures to keep or gift to friends and family.

Also by Petra Anhert is Beehive Alchemy.
