Making Your Own Beeswax Products Book
Recently, I was at the library and I found this book called Beeswax Alchemy...How to make your own, candles, soap, balms, salves, and home decor from the hive by Petra Ahnert. If you are really interested in making your own products from beeswax this book has a variety of different project you can make. There are recipes for candles, soap, balms and even recipes for furniture polish, wood polishes, cutting board conditioners and more. It is a really neat book and I would purchase this book for my own library.
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
