This is Beeswax from British Columbia Bees.
This is a 1LB block
This natural substance has and is used all over the world for a wide variety of Bushcraft uses. I highly recommend the tealight and candles for survival kits. The light they give is pure and clean! and the smell is a real plus (this may seem like a small point, but you'd be surprised how that helps in stressful situations NOT to have a stinky, smoky light)
Also its has lots of other great uses for the woodsman...here are just a few , with more info below...
Beeswax is very useful for...
~Survival kits..light and heat
~Waterproofing seams, survival matches,boots, etc
~Adding strength and longer life to cordage, bow strings, sewing threads etc
~lubricating sawblades,nails/screws,even zips and buckles.
~Can be used in recipes for hand cream,lip balm,candles,polishes even moustache waxes!!
~can be used to seal woods,leathers even cement and paper
~Beeswax does not appear to deteriorate over time
~Has the Highest melt point (65C) of any known wax
~Its pliable at plus 35-40C
~Its insoluable in water
~it emits the same spectrum of light, as does the sun
~its naturally scented by bees, carrying the scent of the flowers/nectar they stored at the time
and other uses..
Use beeswax to:
~ Unstick a drawer. A thin coat of beeswax on wooden rails makes the wood drawers slide smoothly. It does windows, too. Use wax to lubricate sashes.
~. Wax wood. For structural elements that need to look good but take no wear (such as exposed ceiling beams), heat equal parts beeswax, linseed oil, and turpentine. Apply with a burlap rag while the mixture is still warm.
~. Preserve bronze. To ward against oxidation caused by moist air, brush on a solution of 1/3 pound beeswax melted in 1 quart turpentine. Buff it with a towel to create a thin, hard coat.
~. "Whip" frayed rope. Wrap a waxed length of string tightly around the rope's tip about a dozen times. Tie off the loose end and trim the excess.
~Rub wax over the threads of screws to make them drive smoothly and resist corrosion.
~ Condition a wood cutting board. Add a half-teaspoon beeswax to a cup of mineral oil, heat until the wax melts, and apply the mixture to the board with a soft cloth.
~ Waterproof leather. Combine equal parts beeswax, tallow, and neatsfoot oil. Warm the mixture and use a rag to rub it on your work boots or gloves
~~ You can safely melt the beeswax gently in a double boiler. Do not use a microwave oven since the wax could reach the flash point and ignite. Do not cover the wax when using water to heat. Otherwise, water could condense on the lid and eventually get into the wax.
