Dalziel does provide some background information on beeswax such as where it comes from and how to handle it. He sticks to only must-have information on that before diving into the good stuff – easy tutorials for all manner of beeswax uses.

There's an apothecary section that shows some of the medicinal uses for beeswax, which is great for emergency preparation and healthy alternatives to over-the-counter drugs.
