I have a steady supply incoming of wax from cutouts, and have melted a significant amount of it for uses by my wife such as candles, lip balm, etc. However, these don't sell so much and I'm at a point where she doesn't want/need any more wax. I hate to start throwing it away. Any suggestions on what to do with it?

Could just melt/clean it up and sell as beeswax. Probably would have luck here on the forum as a lot of folks buy wax to add to plastic foundation. Even pre-waxed foundation does better with a heavier coat of wax.

Sell it!

If you are using wax foundation in your own hives then you can trade it back to Mann Lake for wax foundation.

Sell to other candle makers.

There was somebody on here just today or yesterday looking for wax.

Sell it to other beekeepers - sell it on ebay, since its from cutouts, say it's free from pesticides and its organic sell it for $25 a pound.
