Q: A recipe for lip balm you included in your January, 2008, calls for beeswax. Where can I get beeswax?
Via e-mail, from Mary 

A: Great question! You can purchase organic and cosmetic grade beeswax bars at GloryBee Foods. Organic Grade Bars are $39.95 for 32 ounces and Cosmetic Grade Bars are $22.50 for 32 ounces. GloryBee Foods also has an extensive list of craft supplies for candle making and soap making. If you want to recreate a recipe but you don’t know where to get the ingredients, visit GloryBee Foods’ online store. For anyone who wants to make lip balm with beeswax, here is Janice Cox’s recipe from Body and Soul: Soothing Glosses and Balms.

Bee Balm for Lips
 
Makes 1 ½ ounces
Bees provide a valuable lip balm ingredient—beeswax! This rich balm will soften and protect your lips. You can use it alone or as a base for colored lipstick.
• 2 tablespoons grated beeswax
• 1 teaspoon sunflower oil
• 1 teaspoon apricot kernel oil
• 1/8 teaspoon vitamin E oil

1. On a stove or in a microwave, gently heat beeswax and oils until melted; be careful to not overheat. Stir well to combine. Pour into a small, clean container, then cool completely.
