Bees make beeswax. People do not make beeswax. However, beeswax is not an aphorism or a colloquialism exclusively but a real life knowledge pivot. It is a coping mechanism.
If we hear or say, “Mind your own beeswax” we know exactly and completely what this means: Mind your own business. Beeswax just seems to be a nicer way to say it. We could say, ‘Keep out of it,’ or ‘Stick to your own knitting,’ or ‘Keep your nose out of it,’ or ‘Butt off.’
I think this is why ‘Mind your own beeswax’ is such a nice way to say ‘Mind your own business.’ There are certainly times when this reminder is necessary for all of us.
