    I have some clean but travel stained wax I sell for $2.50 a pound PLUS the shipping. Can ship 5 pounds USPS in a flat rate box for $8.00.
    Yellow capping wax sells for $4.00 a pound plus shipping.

    Straight out of my solar melter.

    Travel stained meens that it is from recycled comb. As bees travel on the comb it gets dark, the older the darker. I personal would think it would work as honey and proplis is a natural antibotic that has came in contact with the comb.
    But you may want to ask around about that. This comb is from frames I bought used. I can not say what has been in contact with them.
