Season Your Cast Iron With Beeswax

Beeswax is a natural protectant, it is a natural source of Vitamin A, and it has antibacterial properties. Beeswax has a relatively low Melting Point range of 62 to 64 °C (144 to 147 °F). If beeswax is heated above 85 °C (185 °F) discoloration occurs. The flash point of beeswax is 204.4 °C (400 °F). Density at 15 °C is 958 to 970 kg/m³.

  1. Scrub your cast iron cookware with hot water if needed and sometimes we use a metal spatula if we have to scrape off any stuck on food although this is rare. We do not use Dish Soap and do not Recommend it.

  2. Place beeswax bar directly into a cast iron pan or skillet.

  3. Next you will want to warm up a cast iron pan to melt your wax slowly until it becomes a liquid consistency.

  4. Then spread evenly with a clean cloth or paper towel (better yet brown thin paper towels work nicely) and evenly coat the wax all over your cast iron cookware.

  5. Lastly you place your pans in the oven at 450 degrees until it stops smoking and it will smoke quite a bit so you may want to ventilate your kitchen prior to doing this. This may also be done on an outdoor grill but you have to monitor very closely as the temperature can get too hot very quickly.

  6. Place pans out to cool on pot holders and then they will be ready for cooking
