first beeswax salves!
this is my first little hunk of beeswax melted from the cappings left over after the honey harvest.
after the wax hardened, i re-melted it with olive and coconut oil. off the burner, i added cardamom essential oil for a warm wintery scent. i added beet root powder for the glosses for a little color. voila! the salves harden very quickly; it's satisfying to watch. more process photos.
