Beeswax 1 oz. made by Summer Smiles Honey Farms
Beeswax has many uses; quiet squeeky wooden drawers, polish granite counter tops, make Pysankya eggs, gun stock varnish.
A major by-product of extracting honey is beeswax. The "cappings" and comb wax from the frames are washed with water, carefully melted down (in a double boiler, as beeswax is highly flammable), and then strained through cheesecloth. It is then ready to use make candles and other products.
