My spouse recently started two beehives - he plans on expanding his hives as he learns on how to care for them, especially when working them over the winter. - he is grateful he has hands on sponsors.
Additionally, he will sell his honey using the Bee Associations processing facilities (for free) we may decide later to add our own processing facility on site, we are not leaning that way yet.
Having access to wax got me thinking - Back in Virginia I made my own candles, cosmetics, lip balm, deodorant etc... using purchased beeswax - soon I will have access to free wax & the possibilities are endless!
I have purchased two new books on how utilize our wax. - I am super excited!
Below is one of my favorite homemade deodorants using beeswax - I LOVE IT - IT WORKS! I am sharing from the original source - I use patchouli as my essential oil.
As for buying supplies for Hooterville's Apothecary Shop, securing the "right" labels" & anything else you might need - I like to use this site to buy my Bulk Apothecary jars & assorted supplies - Apothecary Shop . There are so many choices - so do some research!
Super excited to get our farm business up and running this year, with eggs, turkeys, ducks & more.
