The beeswax smells like sweet honey.
Beeswax is the thickening agent used in herbal oils to convert them to ointments (or balms.) In addition to the nutrition found in the herbs, themselves, beeswax also adds its owns nutrients to the finished product. To make an herbal ointment, first make the oil extraction as follows:
Put 7 ounces dried herb (or mixture of herbs), into a quart jar along with 20 ounces of extra virgin olive oil and 8 ounces of wheat germ oil. Put the lid on the canning jar and set it in the sun for 4 hours to 3 days. Then strain or press the oil from the herbs (cheesecloth or muslin works well.) Add enough olive oil to regain 28 ounces of oil.
To make the oil into an ointment: melt 6 ounces of beeswax in the top of a double boiler. In another pan heat the oil to 140 deg. F, then pour into the melted beeswax. Stir while cooling, and pour mixture into ointment jars when the temperature has reached approximately 120 deg. F. Put the lids on the jars only when completely cool. Be sure to label the jar so you will know what kind of ointment it contains and when it was made.
This is just one of the many uses for this beeswax.
