Recommended Beeswax Book

Beeswax: Production, Harvesting, Processing and Products
By Roger A. Morse, William L Coggshall, Mary A. Scott and Susan Sarabasha

192 pages in English

This is the book I recommended for reading if you would like to learn deeper about beeswax. As the book title stated, this book was written about the production of beeswax by all honeybees species, the approaches taken by beekeepers to harvest beeswax, the methods used in processing beeswax and also how it is used to make some final products like candles, lotion, polishes...

Wait! Let's see what others reviewed about this book:

Excellent to get you started in Beeswax November 18, 2009

A really, really good book! Combines comprehensive discussion of the composition and properties of beeswax with practical advice on its refinement and use, especially in the manufacture of candles. If "Beeswax" were updated I imagine it would include the latest on pesticide contamination and modern issues of concern to beekeepers and craftspeople working with beeswax. But while 25 years old it's the best introduction to beeswax I've read, by far preferable to Thomas William Cowan's quaint 1908 book "Wax Craft", a defective reprint edition of which has recently been published.
