What are 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 and eco-friendly materials: ethically sourced 100% pure beeswax, natural tree resin and certified organic plant oils.

Why should I use Beeswax Wraps?

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.

How do I use Beeswax Wraps?

  • WRAP, COVER or FOLD

  • then WASH and REUSE

  • occasionally REFRESH

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

Please see below the video playlist for further written instructions.

WRAP, COVER or FOLD

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.

No need for rubber bands or string, our beeswax 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 adhere naturally. To unwrap, use the warmth of your hands to soften the beeswax wrap then gently unfold.

Perfect for vegetarians. Not suitable for use with (raw or cooked) meat and fish products, cut pineapple (or other fruits with a very 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 wrap but it will still be effective.

then WASH and REUSE

Beeswax wraps are reusable- gently wash by hand with cool water (using a mild soap, if needed) in between uses. We recommend Ecover, Dr Bronners or Seventh Generation rather than Fairy liquid. Hang to air dry. Store in a cool, dark cupboard or drawer- either folded or flat. To extend how many times you are able to effectively reuse your wrap, we recommend that you occasionally refresh your wraps.

occasionally REFRESH

Beeswax wraps are long lasting with minimal care: after several uses, hold your wrap flat up to the light (natural light at window works best), if light is able to pass through then you need to refresh your wrap. Cut two pieces of baking/parchment paper that is at least 1 inch larger than the wrap; place one parchment paper flat on an ironing board (or towel) place the wrap, then cover with the 2nd piece of parchment paper; quickly iron using a medium heat; wait about 30 seconds then hold the top two ends of the wrap (using your fingers or tongs) and gently “waft” the wrap cool (it should take about a minute); then it’s ready to wrap again.

eventually COMPOST (or return to us for a coupon)

Most wraps can be refreshed numerous times but as this depends on how much you use it, if you are able to see light through the wrap after you have completed refreshing your wrap, then it’s time to cut it into strips using fabric scissors and compost it- or send it back to us for a discount on your next purchase of beeswax wraps. When you do send us your wraps please remember to enclose your contact details so we can let you know your discount code.

Only 100% pure beeswax is naturally anti-bacterial and is the key to keeping food fresher for longer.

We filter the beeswax that is a by-product of the surplus honey collected from beehives during honey harvests. Surplus honey and beeswax is collected from the Supers (top part of the beehive) and is never collected from the Brood boxes (where the Queen lays eggs and the honey bees store their honey for the winter). This way, the honey bees always have enough supplies of honey and 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), nasty chemicals or preservatives are added- we only use 100% pure beeswax.
