Homemade Beeswax Polish

I have been thinking about making a natural, organic beeswax polish for some of my creations. It's toxic free and very good to seal some items that go into the mouth. Naturally babies and/or children put things in their mouths. So, to seal the wood and preserve the creation...I found a great homemade receipt.
 I used a natural peppermint essential oil to add a little yummy smell to the beeswax.
 I bought organic beeswax from a local bee farm. Here the heated combination is starting to cool...made inside a glass container for keeping.
And here is the finished product. It smells great and once the polish has set and is buffed, the natural turpentine is released and no longer in/on the product. I am excited to seal other products with this to preserve wood and keep harmful polishes out of my house. Who would have thought it was that easy?!?!
