beeswax recipe

I am so excited. Tenzing Momo not only sells really, super cheap essential and fragrance oils (a 2oz. bottle of Sandalwood there is $30, which a 1/4 oz. dram at Traveler's was $25), but beeswax, dead sea salts, and all kinds of herbs and spices. And they're right down the street. No more buying this stuff online for me!

That said. I needed beeswax recipes and went a-hunting!
