Beekeeping has some great perks, including honey and beeswax. Beeswax can be used to make all kinds of organic beauty products, home decor, medical remedies and more. You can make your own beeswax products with a little help from Blain’s Farm & Fleet.
Beeswax candles are a great alternative to regular wax candles. They give off a warm glow and actually help rid the air of toxins. When making the candles, most people combine the beeswax with essential oils or coconut oil. It keeps the beeswax from getting too hot and breaking the jar or candle holder. We’ve gathered a few different recipes to make your own candles.
