About this article
To digest beeswax safely, you must install a double boiler on your stove, as direct heating of the beeswax can cause burning or burning. Start by filling a large pot with 1 or 2 inches of water and bring it to a boil. If possible, use an electric stove or hotplate as the vapors from your wax may have the potential to catch fire. When the water boils, lower the heat to a simmer and place a smaller metal pot or bowl on top of the pot holding water. Then place the wax in the smaller pot and allow it to melt slowly. It can take 30 minutes to an hour. Add water to the bottom pot if it starts to get low. When the wax melts, pour it into a mold or use it as needed.
