100% pure beeswax. No paraffin wax. No soy wax. No palm oil.

Truly eco-friendly

  • The beautiful, bright glow of a lit beeswax candle is on the same light spectrum as sunlight

  • For every 450g/1lb of beeswax, honey bees have to collect nectar from nearly 33 million flowers

  • 75,000 honey bees work together to make 1 lb (450g) of beeswax

100% pure beeswax candles

We filter the beeswax that is a by-product of the surplus honey collected from beehives during honey harvests. This way, nothing is wasted.

We support ethical beekeeping and its values so our beeswax is cruelty-free and from a sustainable source. The beeswax that we use is straight from the beehive- no other type of wax (e.g. soy or paraffin), no nasty chemicals and no preservatives are added- we only use 100% pure beeswax.

The reusable alternative to single-use plastic: Beeswax Wraps

Honey Bee Wraps are beeswax food wraps which are the sustainable, reusable and natural alternative to plastic wrap and aluminium foil. They are a plastic-free way to keep your food fresher for longer and perfect for a zero-waste lifestyle. They are naturally adhesive, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal without any nasty chemicals. Each beeswax wrap is handmade by us (a family business) using simple, food-safe and eco-friendly materials: ethically sourced 100% pure beeswax, natural tree resin and certified organic plant oils.

Beeswax food wraps prevent an estimated 480 metres of plastic wrap going to landfill and into our oceans per year (based on a family of 4 using 24 packs of 20 metres). This is a great way to reduce food waste as the cotton material allows some of the moisture to escape and your food to breathe which means that bacteria have to work harder to decompose your food; this means that your food should stay fresher for longer wrapped in beeswax food wraps compared to plastic wrap or aluminum foil. We've found that we save money in the long run on our grocery bill as less food is wasted at home by using beeswax food wraps. Beeswax food wraps are biodegradable.

Beeswax Wraps

Natural beeswax is an incredibly versatile material with unique properties

It is an integral part of the beehive as it provides structure to the beehive and it is a vital part of nature's original food storage as it is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal

Beeswax Wraps are handmade, plastic-free and the natural alternative to plastic wrap and aluminium foil

24 million slices of bread are wasted everyday in the UK alone. Beeswax wraps reduce food waste as the cotton material allows some of the moisture to escape and your food to breathe which means that bacteria have to work harder to decompose your food.

These are the sustainable and reusable way to naturally keep your food fresh for longer.

How to use beeswax food wraps: 

  • WRAP, COVER or FOLD

  • then WASH and REUSE

  • occasionally REFRESH

  • eventually COMPOST (or return to us for a coupon)

Use the warmth of your hands to soften the beeswax wrap, fold it around food or over a container and use your fingers to press and seal. When the wrap cools, it will hold its shape. For best results, store leftovers covered in beeswax wraps in the fridge but for food like bread: they are best left wrapped on the kitchen counter. To unwrap, use the warmth of your hands to soften the beeswax wrap then gently unfold.

It is reusable- gently wash by hand with cool water (using a mild soap, if needed) in between uses. Hang to air dry. Store in a cool, dark cupboard or draw- either folded, flat or rolled up. They last longer when you occasionally refresh them, see our product pages for more details on how to do this.

No need for rubber bands or string, our beeswax food wraps are tacky enough to hold their shape but not too sticky to be a nuisance. You may need to hold the seal of the beeswax wrap for a little longer on colder days or in colder climates so that it has enough heat to naturally adhere.

Not suitable for use with (raw or cooked) meat and fish products, cut pineapple (or other fruits with a high acidic content) and hot food (wait until cooled completely). Great in the fridge but we don't recommend the freezer. Not suitable for use near heat sources such as ovens, microwaves and dishwashers. Some food types (like beetroot) may stain your beeswax food wrap but it will still be effective.
