What a great gift I got yesterday, I brought home some lovely local honey but I was also able to bring home a big box filled with uncleaned beeswax.. The bee keeper had already graded the wax, I assume for his own purpose when planning to clean it at a later date.
I had hoped to bring home fresh wax for use in my salves for the year but I came away with much more then that.. I will get to play a bit for sure on what I do with it..
This is a quite big box and it has what appears to be average color mix to it.
this box is filled with very light and very clean comb. I expect that this will be my best wax for my salve making but time will tell me if I am right
This is the smallest amount and its very dark comb indeed.. Below is a half filled white kitchen garbage bag filled with already partly prepared for melting wax.
Have you worked with raw wax? I will keep you up to date on my process and how it goes. What would you make with it?
