Before You Begin…

Our recipes call for 100% pure Beeswax Co. beeswax. In each case, melt beeswax gently and safely using a double boiler. Keep beeswax uncovered while melting — you don’t want boiling water to condense on the lid and drip into your wax. Do not use a microwave — beeswax can easily reach the flash point and ignite.
