Cleaning Beeswax

In this page, we will be showing how to filter raw beeswax to be used to make a variety of products like: soap, candles, lip balm, lotion bars, Encaustic paintings, etc.

First step is to melt the beeswax. We melt the beeswax in a coffee can that is inside a pot filled with boiling water. WARNING: Never melt beeswax in direct fire because the beeswax is highly flammable and can catch on fire!

Be careful when handling beeswax because it can burn and stick on skin.

Now, carefully take the can out of the boiling water and pour into any type of mold through cheesecloth and a strainer. This will take out any bee parts or tiny smoker ash.

Once the pouring is done, this is what the blocks of clean beeswax should look like.

Now the beeswax is ready to be used to make products.
