Thoughts on organic beeswax
I am in love with fresh organic beeswax! It is incredible stuff. The heady smell is almost overpowering; deep, dark, sweet, buttery, honey, resin, flowers, pollen, wax. The colour is a rich deep sunny yellow gold. The therapeutic benefits are amazing. It is so nutritious, emollient, protective and healing for the skin and body. I use it in many of my body and soul products to make body balms and healing salves and just recently, my latest craze; incredibly scented solid body butter bars! They actually melt into your skin with the heat of the body bars as you glide the bar over your limbs but remain solid when not in use . Imagine the combined scents of honey, cocoa butter and coconut oil, beautiful on their own, but then I added some essential oils of sweet orange, vanilla and lavender to develop the therapeutic properties of the bars and to enable the mingled fragrances to be released with every application of smoothing, soothing buttery body -bliss! They are pretty impressive!
