This is a great primer for many of the products from a honey bee hive. The authors have compiled an excellent collection of recipes and techniques for making candles, soap, lip balm, salves, not to mention some mouth watering recipes (both sweet and savory). The book provides a springboard of ideas that will allow the reader to understand and if interested explore the specific interest areas.
I was especially impressed with the way the authors described the processes, and clearly marked the care and safety concerns when working with bees wax and lye. No punches are pulled, and descriptions of what could happen if done the wrong way are matter of fact, without scaring the reader.
From the Kindle edition, I wish there were more photos to show in process and end results, but it works. The other issue I wish was pointed out was how the properties of honey can change when heated. If local unprocessed honey is used, and heated above 140, the helpful anti-oxidants...
This little book, while only 150 odd pages, is thoughtful, concise, well written and seems very well developed. As a practicing herbalist, its always good to find books like this with extra ways to use my 'craft', and remind me to branch out back into using lye in my soaps. I used to use beef tallow and lye when I was back on the farm 20 years ago, and got away f.rom it, but was reminded that my soap then was as good as the soap I make now without the lye. Some of the actual recipes are very good, and the use of honey and beeswax is always a plus in remedies or cooking for sweetness. I enjoyed reading this book cover to cover, and will probably incorporate some of their ideas into my 'recipes' for my salves and lip balms. Great book. Thank you.
The book has many different ways to use honey. There are food recipes, body scrubs, lip balms, candles and more! It is packed with great ideas and great directions. This book is great for adults and children. I've tried many of the body care products and even adjusted them to suit my needs. I recommend this book to cooks, crafters and honey lovers.
