If you are looking for a new material to spice up your DIY ventures, look no further than beeswax. This substance made by honey bees may appear to be useful only for their hives. But, in actuality, beeswax is an incredibly versatile substance that can be used for any number of projects. Read this list of four creative DIY projects you can make using beeswax to see if you can find inspiration for your next project.
1. Lip Balm
Many people despise the bizarre, waxy feeling mass-produced lip balms put on their lips. What you might not realize is that beeswax offers a less greasy and smoother alternative. Also, when you DIY your own lip balm, you can choose your favorite flavor for yourself.
Much of the perfume produced for the mass market has too strong a scent for people with sensitive noses. If you want something more subtle, one of the best creative DIY projects you can make using beeswax is to turn it into perfume. The natural, comfortable scents created from beeswax make it well worth the time and effort.
As we get closer to the colder months, some folks are already considering how to decorate their homes. If you want to add a creative spark to your Christmas tree with some unusual materials, you can always turn to beeswax. Much like soap, people often carve beeswax to make different decorative items. Imagine beeswax carved to be a star hanging from your tree.
4. Scented Beeswax Crayons
Scented beeswax crayons are an excellent gift for your kids. Not only does it show a great deal of love and affection that you made the items, but their reusability means they will be a part of your children’s lives for a while.
