April 2 at Southern Tier Beekeepers
I’ll be presenting at the Southern Tier Beekeepers in Chenango on April 2. My topic will be prepping beeswax, and all the marvelous products it’s used in.
I’ll do a quick run down on how to clean wax, and then talk about the hows and whys of using it in balms and soaps. Beeswax is great for giving body to balms, and providing a moisture barrier, to keep skin from drying out. It also smells fantastic on its own. In soaps, it makes a harder, longer-lasting bar.
