To filter beeswax, you can use a simple method that involves melting the beeswax and straining it through a fine mesh or cheesecloth. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to do it:
Begin by melting the beeswax in a double boiler or in a glass jar placed in a pot of hot water.
Once the beeswax is fully melted, remove it from the heat and let it cool slightly.
Place a fine mesh strainer or a piece of cheesecloth over a clean jar or silicone container.
Pour the melted beeswax through the cheesecloth or strainer, using a spoon or spatula to help push it through if needed.
Allow the filtered beeswax to cool and solidify in the jar or silicone container.
Once the beeswax is fully cooled and solidified, you can remove it from the jar or silicone container and use it as desired.
You can also use a filter press or centrifuge to filter beeswax, but these methods are more complex and may require specialized equipment. Alternatively, you can purchase our all-natural beeswax here and support a local colony.
