“Beeswax is a scientifically proven preservative!”
“That's none of my beeswax.”
“It's useless on its own, just like me.”
“THE BEES MADE IT”
“Naturally antibacterial. Could slow food decay if we use it properly.”
“I miss sealing a good letter.”
“The stuff of candlemakers.”
“This stuff gives me hives.”
“It smells kinda alright.”
Beeswax is a Refined item exclusive to Don't Starve Together, introduced in A New Reign. It requires 1 Honeycomb to craft, and a Science Machine to prototype. It can be used to craft Wax Paper, which can then be used in other recipes. Since Honeycombs are renewable because of the Gigantic Beehive, the Beeswax is a renewable item.
If left on the ground during Summer or near a heat source, the Beeswax will melt and vanish, and cannot be retrieved. This can easily be avoided by placing it inside a Chest or Backpack.
