55 Ways to Use Beeswax

Stakich Beeswax

Many people have asked us, "what is beeswax used for?" Beeswax is an incredible natural substance that can be used in many ways to improve our lives. Its several uses date back for over thousands of years! It is first produced and used in the hive by honey bees to build their honeycomb cells, but humans use it outside of the hive for a wide variety of applications. Beeswax acts as an anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiallergenic and a germicidal antioxidant which is why it is such a popular product.

Hello. I bought the royal jelly a while ago and I´m very happy. I´m still using it. Thank you.
Now I would like to ask the recipes for facial and eye cream with bee wax, considering they should be lighter than salve.
Thank you again,
Maria Calvert
