Beeswax wraps

Beeswax wraps

These beeswax wraps have been around for a while and they use different ingredients.

I’m sticking to the two basic ingredients: beeswax and jojoba oil.

1. Grate the beexwax or use small pellets

2. Place a piece of oven paper on a tray or plate. Then place the fabric right side up on top of it and sprinkle with jojoba oil and a layer of beeswax.

3. Ensure the edges and corners have enough beeswax, but don’t worry. You can always add more later.

4. Place the tray in the oven for 10-15 minutes at 100 C.  The beeswax will melt. Once it melts make sure that the wrap is completely covered in beeswax.

Remove from the over. You can just hold it from two corners and place it on a piece of oven paper. It’ll dry very quickly.

It’s ready to use.

That simple!

If you omit the resin the wrap isn’t as tacky and doesn’t adjust as well but I don’t find that to be an issue.

To clean, you can use a damp microfiber cloth to wipe it clean.

  1. What is this used for? I’ve never heard of a beeswax wrap. Also, don’t know what jojoba oil is. Thanks.

  2. You state – if you leave out the RESIN – I don’t see any mention of resin in the instructions. Was this just a slip or do you include resin?
