The Beeswax Workshop by Chris Dalziel is one of the more fun yet educational and helpful books I’ve read in a long while. It’s fun because it actually tells you how to make Pomade for your hair a la Oh, Brother Where Art Thou?
And Beeswax paste polish for wooden floors. Do YOU know anyone who would go to that kind of work to polish floors these days?
Educational and helpful because the book is jam packed with instructions for:
- All sorts of candles including Rolled Birthday Candles
- Lip Balm of all sorts
- Soap and Hair Care
- Apothecary Items
- Along with uses in the home, garden and art!

The Beeswax Workshop: How to Make Your Own Natural Candles, Cosmetics, Cleaners, Soaps, Healing Balms and More by Chris Dalziel
There aren’t many photos in the book and the ones included are in black and white but I’ll tell you it’s got over 75 “recipes” plus TONS of general bee and wax information. IT’s selling for only $8.30 USD on amazon right now (use the purple bold link above to order) and it’s worth every penny and then some. This is a book I’m keeping on my bookshelf and I’m sure I’ll be returning to it over and over again. Especially as I hope to be keeping bees in the next few years!
