NWNJBA was extremely fortunate to have Master Beekeeper Landi Simone as a guest speaker for our November 9 member meeting. Landi gave a presentation on “Lotions, Potions, and Creams,” focusing on all the products beekeepers can make with from beeswax, honey, and propolis.
One of her main tenets is that mostly beekeepers care about beeswax candles... and you can make twenty times more profit by making soaps and lotions with beeswax.
She shared step-by-step instructions, with pictures, for cleaning wax and cleaning propolis, along with instructions and recipes for making creams and lotions with beeswax and honey.
Landi generously allowed us to share her entire presentation deck, which is available for download.
