Beeswax is fantastic in balms and salves to impart staying-power and emollient characteristics. At high concentrations, it hardens products and slows the speed of absorbency. To use, carefully shave off necessary amount with a grater or sharp knife. Store excess shavings in a plastic bag or mason jar. Best melted with indirect heat in a double boiler; direct heat should be avoided as beeswax is flammable. When overheated, product may discolour.
