Beeswax - Nutritionally speaking, beeswax has little to offer. Beeswax does have a bit of vitamin A, but otherwise not nutritionally dense. However, beeswax is a very good source of roughage in one's diet.
Beeswax does have many practical uses outside of diet. Beeswax is a great natural addition to any skin care product. It serves as a natural moisturizing agent. Beeswax not only locks moisture into the skin but also protects skin and lips. If you are looking for soft skin and lips beeswax should definitely be part of your routine. The Savannah Bee Company uses all natural beeswax in all of our skin and lip care products! Take care of your hands with our all natural Beeswax Hand Cream. Beeswax and royal jelly replenish and nourish skin with essential nutrients. We add softening pecan and peach kernel oils, anti-oxidizing blueberry extract, and healing propolis to create Savannah Bee Company Beeswax Hand Cream. Fresh peach-scented with a rich and creamy texture, our long-lasting formula protects and softens hard-working hands with all-natural moisture.
Apart from skin and lip treatment, beeswax has many functional uses. Beeswax has been used for thousands of years to make candles. Beeswax candles are long-lasting, chemical free, and release the sweet smell of honey as they burn. Beeswax can be used to increase water resistant quality of boots and shoes.
I was raised in a house full of antiques. Periodically, I would be asked to rub beeswax on the inside rails of the drawers. I still use this great trick today on all my stubborn dresser drawers!
Beeswax luminaries are beautiful, decorative, and smell great. A luminary is a globe shaped wax candle holder. The light from the candle passes through the globe illuminating it completely. Often leaves and flowers are pressed into the wax.
