Beekeepers get heaps of beeswax. We always try to give it back to the bees to store their honey in, or to set up new foundation combs, but we still have more.
Turns out that beeswax was a key ingredient of skin products back in the day, but cheap & nasty petrochemical derivatives took the place of beeswax. So we've put the beeswax back into balms (well us and Burts Bees). To see more go to www.bushblossom.com.au
