June Monthly Meeting at Pine Jog Environmental Education Center

June 6, 2014 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm
Our June meeting will bee all about how to use products from your hive.  We will start out with how to clean your wax on the stove and in a solar wax melter.  Then we will talk about how to make our silky smooth Honey Salt Body Scrub and Perfect Face and Body Cream.  And if you have a block about making soap, like I do, we will show you a simple recipe to overcome that with ingredients you can get locally.  June is the month to connect with your local crafty beekeepers!See More
