How do I use Beeswax Food Wraps?
Place the wrap over what you need to cover. Hold your hand on the wrap to warm the wax so that it moulds to the object you are wrapping for about 10 seconds. The beeswax wrap will mould to the object you are wrapping. Simply wipe with a warm wet cloth. Once a month add a drop of dishwashing liquid to the wash and rinse thoroughly.
Wax wraps should last approximately 12 months and can be refreshed by lying them flat on baking paper in an oven tray and placing in an oven set to 100 degrees for about 1 minute. This will remelt the wax and blend it into the cotton. Take out of the oven and let it cool down on the paper before you lift it from the tray. Then use as normal.

Best not to use for wrapping meat products. Will melt if warmed (it’s wax).
Beeswax is one of nature’s most amazing products! The beeswax comes directly from uncapping our honey frames from our hives. It often varies in colour but is majority yellow. It can be used in a very extensive list of projects.
All our beeswax has been lovingly hand-melted with steam and double-filtered but may still contain pollen and honey remnants. Beeswax is often yellow due to the variety of nectar, pollen, and resins gathered by the bees to make the wax and also by thousands of little bee feet walking on the frames every day. When fresh beeswax is first built in the hive it can also be white.
Our happy hives are located on suburban and rural properties from Brisbane to Gympie. We use no chemicals in the management of our bees or the processing of our raw honey or pure beeswax. We are organically minded in every step of our beekeeping journey.
When you buy any of our products you are supporting a local family of beekeepers that support an important industry and other family-run businesses. Dream big for local impact!
