Beeswax

I was given a bag of uncleaned beeswax.

I brought it home and put it in a pot and set the pot in another pot of boiling water.

After a while the wax had melted and I strained it into this jug. However, not having read that there was still honey in the wax and it would have to be washed off I realized I needed my wax in a flatter container. As you see, I have layers of honey and wax here since I had two batches of wax I melted.

The internet suggested a cardboard milk carton but not having one I lined a casserole dish with aluminum foil. I re-melted the wax and poured it into this dish. Now once it cools completely I will wash the honey off the bottom and have beeswax for my salves.
