Earlier this month, members of the Pascack Valley High School Beekeeping Club spent an afternoon learning how to make poured beeswax candles and beeswax lip balms. Students learned that Beeswax is a superior material for candles as it is made naturally and cleanses the air with negative ions. Participants threaded wicks through rubber candle moulds and poured in melted wax to set overnight resulting in beautiful candles to take home. 

The students who made lip balms combined wax with shea & cocoa butter along with several different oils and scents to create their own custom blend. The PV Beekeeping Club is advised by Ms. Kristin Lindstrom, PV Science Teacher. The Club maintains a set of hives on campus and produces honey and other related products.
