What can we use beeswax for? Lots of things- here's a few:
Root Candles in Medina, Ohio is a company that uses beeswax, and sometimes it's a very long process to get from the beeswax to a candle used at your dinner table. Here's a picture of candles being dipped.
Cosmetics: Beeswax is now used in many lotions and lip balms because it is a natural product that helps to seal in moisture. Check your chapstick- maybe it contains beeswax!
Other Uses: Your mom or dad might use beeswax to help dresser drawers slide better or even in their furniture polish. We can use beeswax all around the house- some crayons even have the honeybee's hard work in them!
"Bee in the Know": Many churches only use beeswax candles because they don't leave a smoky residue on the statues and windows.
