I filter and melt small batches of beeswax with the help of the sun. Once it’s melted, I grate it by hand, then mix my recipe and pour it into new, empty tubes. No added fragrance, no added color.
Speaking of color — the color of the wax varies according to the use of the wax, age, time of year, etc. That means that you may buy a tube of white-er lip balm one day, and a yellow-er one the next. The same recipe was used, but the wax was harvested under different conditions.
