Beeswax is really popular, once again. Many people like to put it in their homemade cosmetics and body butters.
Beeswax adds a firmness and stiffness to the coconut oil and shea butter, which are also used by the DIY crowd.
In warm weather, beeswax is especially helpful. Without it, body butter tends to soften. Pure natural beeswax is also added to DIY lip balms. This is what gives it a smooth, firm consistency.
You can melt beeswax to make your own candles. It’s believed that pure beeswax candles can actually help clean the air, because they emit negatively charged ions, which may bind with positively charged toxins. I don’t know if this is true or not. But I’ve heard this from a few sources.
In any event, beeswax candles do burn cleaner than paraffin, a petroleum derivative.
Beeswax, produced by honeybees, offers a myriad of cosmetic and general household uses. It is also said to be good for the skin. That’s why it’s often used for rashes and various skin eruptions, such as acne or eczema. Although I can’t promise anything, I want to pass along this information, about some of the popular uses of beeswax.
Where Can You Buy Beeswax Pellets?
Beeswax is very popular among people who want a more holistic lifestyle, and are interested in making their own skin balm, lip balms, moisturizers and natural beeswax candles.
A few years ago, I threw away all of my chemical based cosmetics and moisturizers. Now, everything I put on my face is 100 percent natural. I never thought I could do it. But I’m making my own cosmetics and my skin seems to be thanking me for it. The dry flaking skin around my mouth, which got worse in the winter, is totally healed.
One advantage to buying beeswax pellets is they come in smaller pieces, so more surface area makes them easier to melt.
