We’ve often been asked where wax comes from? Well there are many types of Waxes. Beeswax has been around for some time. There are many mentions of beeswax in historic writing such as the myth where Ius son of Daedalus put on wings of wax and as he flew too near the sun, it melted and Icarus fell to his death. The father with more experience flew closer to the ground and made it to Italy.

Let’s start

In de Romeinse tijd leefde Plinius van 23 AD tot 79 AD en beschreef witte bijenwas die hij verkreeg door gele bijenwas in zout water te koken. Dit werd vervolgens gebruikt in bouillon en voer voor mensen met dysenterie, het werd ook gebruikt als een huidverzachter.

Some beeswax for this day is used in cosmetics. Virgil the terrific Roman Poet (well I don’t think the material is that good) composed of an invention by Pan, who had been the protector of the bees (an early bee keeper guy ) made a flute of reeds held together by bees wax. During the Middle Ages wooden panels coated with beeswax was noticed by Homer a Greek poet.

Many Romans were honored with figurines made of these selves made in bees wax and therefore today we’ve got the Movie Land Wax Museum in LA.. Romans also wore Death Masks too sometimes. The Egyptians used wax figures of deities in funeral ceremonies and put them in graves. In 400 BC Greek Historians state that Persian coated bodies were a kind of embalming.

De Assyriërs bedekten de lichamen met bijenwas en dompelden ze dan onder? Hé honing, wie weet? In 181 voor Christus toen de Romeinen de Corsicanen veroverden en een belasting van 100.000 pond bijenwas oplegden. De Romeinen eisten bijenwas toen ze de stad Trebizond veroverden in de eerste eeuw na Christus.

In Medieval European instances wax was a a unit of trade for taxation or other. In 1330 farmers in 1 area of France paid 2 pounds of bees wax each year. On 1632 records reveal that the French Monastery called for lease of 600 pounds. Of bees wax each year. Also in 1371 a request was presented to the London Court of Alderman in behalf of the Worshipful Company of Wax Chandlers, which established them as the world’s earliest English Guild. In 1483 the firm received a Royal Charter with authority to oversee the craft of wax chandlery. And when flaws were found to punish the offender, which included seizing the wax.

Bijenwas Kaarsen

Kaarsen van bijenwas werden ooit door de rooms-katholieke kerk geëist als de exclusieve en enige kaarsen. De bijen werden naar Puerto Rico gebracht door de kerk en de oude priesters en conquistadores. Deze zelfde bijen, hoewel ze in omvang zijn afgenomen in vergelijking met de eerste bijen, leven nu nog steeds op het eiland.

Je kunt heel gemakkelijk je eigen was maken, mijn voorouders deden dat op de boerderij op Cape Cod. Eerst heb je een paar potten nodig om te koken en een pot warm water. Vloeibare bijenwas is gemakkelijk, gebruik 1 kwart kopje ivoorzeep, 1 kwart pond bijenwas, 1 kopje terpentijn en een half kopje water.

Los de zeep op in heet water, doe de geschaafde was bij de terpentijn en smelt geleidelijk samen, giet dan het zeepmengsel in het mengsel en roer met een houten lepel, na goed roeren giet je het in een glazen pot en je hebt het, heel ongecompliceerd.

Mensen, Dieren, Planten en Mineralen Was

Oorsmeer zit ook in het menselijk oor. Er zijn twee unieke types en je genetica bepaalt welk type je hebt. De meeste planten hebben ook een dun beschermend laagje was. De meeste citrusvruchten, fruitbomen en groenteplanten hebben was op de vruchten, bladeren en groenten die ze produceren en die wij consumeren. Was wordt ook geproduceerd door dieren en ook door sommige vissen. Andere waselementen zijn aanwezig in mineralen en olieproducten en -destillaten. Polymeer of synthetisch, door de mens vervaardigd in verschillende soorten was. We krijgen wassen echt uit veel verschillende bronnen.

Carnaubawas

The Carnauba we discussed is a favorite wax by many detailers. Carnauba wax is on the leaves of the carnauba palm trees. The ideal Carnauba wax comes out of my view the Palm Trees of Brazil. You can tell a great carnauba wax from the water beads up as you see when you detail your vehicle. Candelilla wax comes from a plant that grows in parts of Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Guatemala and sometimes in the southwestern United States. It’s a brown wax and not only have people used it on automobiles it’s used in phonograph records, floor dressings, and candles. Although it’s the significant part of candle wax, it’s mixed in with other waxes normally from the candles we use in our homes.

Bayberry Wax

Bayberry wax, which comes from the berries that the shrub with that name can also be used in candle making. How is this generated? From bees, the identical wax in making hives. Bee’s wax, is used for several things that are common to man; items like candles, polishes, cosmetics (mostly make-up) crayons, flowers (artificial kind). Bee’s Wax is a different wax that you can use it on your car and it’s tough to spread and it’ll give off a terrific shine. The issue is gathers dust too fast, but it will look cool.

Wolwas

Wax from animals is also common to man. Lanolin, it’s known as, after purification is used in soaps from the business, and also cosmetics in addition to certain ointments for first aid and doctor stuff.

Conclusie

As we can read, there are so many types of waxes that it is hard to really understand waxes in depth, but I hope this has cleared up a few of the intricate issues regarding wax, how it’s created and where it comes from.
