When I think of uses for wax, I usually just think candles. But wax has been used since ancient times for many things:
- In cosmetics
- As a sealant and lubricant
- In polishes
- For making models and casts
- In encaustic painting
- For the cloth dyeing process known as Batik
- Coating cheeses
- For musical instruments
And the list goes on….
It’s amazing we leave the poor bees with anything.
