Melting bees wax

I have a ton of wax from when I harvested the honey, and I decided to melt it down today.
These are all the cappings and scrapings from when I harvested honey.

I fashioned a double boiler with an old bowl. Make sure you use an old bowl, it will never come clean again.

The wax is starting to melt.

All the impurities that were in the wax

This one I did a while ago. Time to make some candles.
