CW - I tried mixing this blend recently and it seems to look like and seems to be close if not exact to the Crisbee formula. I used 2 pucks of 1.5 oz of Big Dipper Beeswax to 1.5 oz of Crisco/storebrand shortening. I melted all 3 in a small saucepan an pour mixture into a Mason jar with measure markings. It yielded 5-1/2 fluid ozs after it cooled and hardened.

So far in my experiment I started earlier this year, no flaking, chipping, or leeched odor of the flax seed oil seasoning into food when cooking.
