Looking for info on making beeswax soap, candles and cosmetics

13 years ago


I will be raising honeybees this next summer and I have found a mentor that is willing to give me all of the beeswax I want at no cost. This will mean nearly 25lbs week.

My 17 year old daughter has expressed an interest in making and selling beeswax soap, candles and personal products as her summer job to earn money for school.

My question is this: having absolutly no experience with making these items, what are the easiest and cheapest methods to reach her goal?

I would also like to know what is the going retail price for such items. We will be selling at very large flea markets and farmers markets, actually anywhere we can find customers.

Thank you for all of your help.
