About the Author

Petra Ahnert is the creative force behind Beehive Alchemy (beehivealchemy.com), an artisan soap, body care, and home goods business. After a serendipitous meeting with a beekeeper at the library in 2002, Petra soon had a couple hives of her own and extra honey to sell. Of course, with the honey, comes beeswax, too, so she sought out ways to make good use of the wax she had on hand. Since that time, Petra has first looked to her own life and the products she uses to replace them with items she could make herself with her extra honey and beeswax. Eventually, those products made their way into the product line-up for Beehive Alchemy.
