    Honey can be used as a food & for healing wounds. Good for sore throats & flavouring & sweetening drinks & foods. Beeswax is good for waterproofing leather items, cleansing lead when moulding bullets, can be used as a tooth filling, & can be used for making bullets for muzzle-loading guns. Good for bow strings, coating linen thread for stitching & for fly fishing line. Good for rubbing on wooden tool handles & gun stocks. Excellent for waterproofing the lock mortice & barrel channel on guns & for protecting gun metal. Good for filling cracks in gun stocks & tool handles. Can be used to make oilcloth & candles.
