Beeswax Coated Fall Leaves

Beeswax Coated Leaves
Here is a fun project for the whole family to do this fall!

First, collect a bunch of beautiful leaves from the ground outside.Gather fresh leafs and let the brittle ones stay on the ground for compost. Choose green, red, yellow, any type of mixture will do.  The more colors the better!

Next melt 1 pound of Swarm Naturals beeswax in a double boiler.  Do not let the wax get too hot. I transfer the wax in to an old bowl and took it outside.

Next, hold the leaf by the steam and carefully dip each leaf into the beeswax. Dipping quickly to prevent damage to the leaf. Set down onto freezer paper to dry or hang stem on a line with a clothespin until dry.

This is a fun project to do with the family, but please be careful, and be sure to supervise small children.  Here is Liam demonstrating the use of hot pads!

Beauty and the Bees!

Beauty and the Bees!
People have used honey to sweeten their beauty routines for centruies. It is said that Cleopatra bathed in milk and honey to augment her youthful allure, Queen Anne of England lathered her locks with honey and oils to keep them lustrous and thick!

Honey
One of natures greatest sweeteners, honey is also a powerful healing agent. Honey has antimicrobial properties and helps retain moisture, making it great for all types of skin! Honey doesn’t spoil or require synthetic preservatives. Preservatives can be skin irritants and carcinogens at worst!

Beeswax
Beeswax contains traces of honey and royal jelly. Beeswax also has antibacterial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral properties! Beeswax is the most sustainable hive product because bees constantly produce it! The mayo Clinic ranks beeswax among the most effective ingredients in lip protection because it forms a protective barrier between your skin and the environment. It’s also a key ingredient in natural waterproof sunblock because of its ability to repel water!
