Beeswax Alchemy is well written and very informative. However, I found most of the recipes quite complicated and/or requiring ingredients that I'm not willing to use. There is a lot of great information contained in here about production of beeswax and the most comprehensive list of uses of beeswax that I have seen. There are also many photos in the book, but as I was reading on a Kindle Paperwhite, the photos were wasted on me. :-( I have used beeswax alongside other ingredients to make my own [...]

I love this book and I think that I will have to buy this and try everything. What I love about this book is that at the top of each page it tells you the difficulty, beginner, intermediate, advanced. Also there were different types of uses for the beeswax. There are also pictures to show steps. In the back of the book there is a guide for oils and other ingredients.

I have been wanting to try to make my own candles for awhile now and with this book I actually feel like I can really do it. There are a few other things to try as well.

This is one of the better crafting books I've come across. I am a small time bee keeper which is what drew me to the book but after reading it cover to cover I'm looking forward to utilizing my wax for some of these types of projects. This book left nothing about the projects unexplained. It's a thorough and beautiful book.

WonderfulI bought this as I love honey products and thought to make myself some.Petra has written an excellent instruction manual which is simple but thorough. The soap turned out beautifully as did the lotion.There isn't much else to add other than it was worth purchasing. Love it.

Met the author at my local farmers market and purchased this book and 6lbs of honey from her. I like the book and everything seems to be explained fairly well. I will try out a few projects and update this review later.

Informative about how they get beeswax and the various types/colors of beeswax. I actually wanted this for a few of the beauty recipes but there are instructions for those, soaps and candles. Nice book if you are interested in beeswax crafts!

this is a keeper and belongs on any homesteaders shelf

This book is excellent! I can't wait for cooler weather when I'll be rendering and recycling this season's wax. Goodies to come!

This stuff looks great! Looks easy to understand with photos to show the steps for each project.

An excellent introduction to many uses of beeswax including candles, cosmetics and intaglio painting. I think it is also useful to those who are already familiar with crafts involving beeswax because there are tips and tricks useful to the intermediate crafter and I think most are not familiar with all these uses. Best recommended for beekeepers casting about for good uses of beeswax since the author discusses refining beeswax for use.
