9 Of the Most Bizarre Uses of Beeswax

Bzzz! “Beezzz” everywhere. Most of you probably don’t even realize how important are bees’ products for people. The products that they produce are extremely healthy and have a wide usage in different areas of our daily life. However, sometimes these lovely creatures find their way to make a home in our house or garden, which can be sometimes dangerous for us and our families. For a safe house you should leave a tricky job like relocating a beehive to specialists in the field of pest control or beekeeping. That way you will save their important colony and secure your home. Beeswax is a common product bees leave behind, and it has countless useful applications in our daily lives. The product has been used by many cultures dating back to ancient times for a variety of uses ranging from batik designs on fabrics to sealing wax for important documents, to cosmetics. These ideas are so easy and fun to be made, that I advise you to start working on them whenever you have a chance.

Beeswax Candles

As they burn with a gentle glow and a mild honey scent, beeswax candles release negative ions. Pollen, dust and pollutants in the air are attracted to these negative ions and are neutralized – so beeswax candles basically clean the air while they burn.

Grafting Wax

Gardeners have been using beeswax for grafting two plants together for hundreds of years. Beeswax is non-toxic and does not deteriorate, lasting for months necessary to allow the plants to grow together.

Moustache Wax

Melt together equal parts beeswax and coconut oil and allow it to cool and set. Work a tiny bit into the moustache, and comb to style.

Deodorant

Try this natural method for making a homemade deodorant instead using the ones with chemicals. Melt together 1 ½ tablespoons of beeswax, 4 tablespoons coconut oil, 1 tablespoon shea butter, 4 tablespoons bentonite clay, and 20 drops of essential oil in a spray bottle.

Barbecuing with Beeswax

Whether you have an outdoor grill or a stove-top indoor grill, coating your grill with beeswax before using it makes clean up a whole lot easier.

Waterproofing

You can rub beeswax over leather shoes and other leather products to help protect against all types of extreme weather conditions, including water.

Anti – Itch Solution

You can create a salve at home using beeswax to help get relief from the itches. There are homemade recipes for making that.

There are many homemade projects you can include beeswax in. Beeswax is essential to all beauty products. Especially when it comes to candles, there are numerous ways to create a unique candle design with beeswax.

IDEA: A good way to make your own beeswax candles is to cut a lemon in two parts, remove the fruit from the peel. Break your block of beeswax into pieces and place in a glass bowl over a pan filled with simmering water. Melt over medium heat. Once the wax begins to melt, cut your wooden wicks and dip the ends in to coat the base of your wick with enough wax to adhere it to the bottom of your lemons. When your beeswax is entirely melted, pour into each lemon. Hold the wick steady while you’re pouring and until the wax is hardened enough for the wick to stand on its own.
