Beeswax

Beeswax, another miracle of nature

Beeswax is a substance produced by young honey bees, they secrete it as a liquid through their abdomen, once this liquid comes into contact with the air, it hardens and becomes wax flakes at the bottom of the insect. They use this wax to protect the honey and pollen, the queen bee lays her eggs in it and the new bees are raised inside.

The quality of beeswax is measured by its coloration, if a beeswax is light in color, it means that it is of better quality than the one that is dark in color, since it is considered that the latter may have been contaminated or overheated. Beeswax does not deteriorate over time, so beekeepers can collect without damaging the one that has already been saved. Its transformation is simple, simply heat and a filtering method are used, ensuring its purity. The use that is given to beeswax is as a waterproofing for wood, creating batik fabrics, ornaments such as candles, candles, ointment, medicine, soaps. It has an infinite number of uses, the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries are the main consumers of beeswax, representing 70% of the world market. Beeswax is known to be non-toxic, but it can clog your gut if you eat too much.

 

We can ingest up to 7 to 10 grams per day (only chewed), some of its properties are:

– Antibacterial effect on the intestine.
– Vitamin A
– Absorbs and eliminates toxins
– Prevents the development of respiratory diseases
– Has a calming effect and treats depression problems
– Improves oral health, especially of the gums as it protects them with therapeutic components

 

It is important to remember that beeswax must be chewed for a while and then spit out, so all the properties of this remain in the saliva and are finally consumed. It is generally used mostly in cosmetics due to the benefits it brings to the skin. I’ll tell you what they are.
