Where to buy Beeswax?

So I ordered a didgeridoo from amazon, and I'm not sure if it comes with a mouthpiece or not. The mouthpieces are made of beeswax, are supposedly easy to make...where do you think I can get some?

How about an Instructable on how to play the didgeridoo? Wow, I almost spelled that right on my first try. And you could make an Instructable on how to make a didgeridoo mouthpiece. Spelled it right that time!

Hmm..once I learn to circle breathe smoothly, I could make a one stop didge instructable with all that, plus making bag and such!

Some local honey has a comb right in there. You can also ask local producers for some. It's supa cheap that way.
He may even cut more off the price if you go after it yourself :-) Took me awhile to figure out what instrument was being talked about....I have seen it spelled: didjeridu
Check http://www.dickblick.com/zz128/26/ and misteart.com has lots of choices. Ebay has a lot of candlemaking people on it, so you might be able to get an even better price there.

A didgeridoo is pretty hardcore... good luck getting it to work...
Thanks..ill surely post a video when I get it!
Definitely post a video!

Craft stores that sell candle making supplies and brewing supply (I've been told) may carry it. The hardware store has a very sticky beeswax used for toilet seals, mixing with paraffin/candle wax takes out most of the sticky (about 1:1).

One thing i need to point out is that it must be 100% beeswax..no colorings, perfumes, or other additives.
Just checked the website, Jo-Ann's sells it.
The Craft shop? Wow, we have one of those :-)
Beeswax mouthpieces are easy, and comfy. - warm up the wax and roll into a donut shape - firmly press wax onto end of didg - press your mouth onto the wax so that it fits comfortably right around your lips - if it hardens or you mess up, warm the wax and try again The hippies I knew liked to do this by a bonfire, but I'm sure a hairdryer works just as well.

Well show us a video of you playing the "Digerydoo" in a closet, that would be freaky as shit.
You can buy it all over the place up here, because so many people keep bees...
Google says here and here, but I've never bought from either of those sources..
And how to make a mouth piece.
