Very thorough explanations and ideas for utilizing beeswax. Readers will find traditional recipes for making candles but also lesser known projects such as homemade wax coated food wrap. The instructions are detailed and include tips and alternate variations. An herb and essential oil guide are provided at the end. The amount of information and supplies may be overwhelming for beginners but the book is a delight to browse at the very least.
