Beeswax wrap is an eco-friendly alternative to cling wrap. Our wraps are handcrafted with 100% cotton, jojoba oil, tree resin, and beeswax.

Beeswax and tree resin has antibacterial properties. It provides a protective and breathable layer that keeps food from getting wet or wilted while locking in moisture, flavour and freshness.

Absolutely! Hear from our customers who love how well our wraps work here.

Our wraps are made using unrefined beeswax (the good stuff!) and carry a natural scent that changes depending on the types of pollen and plant the honeybees have access to. It can range from the sweet aroma of longan to the subtle smell of sunflower. The scent of beeswax will lighten with use.

Most of us enjoy the scent, but there are a few people who are more sensitive to smell and do not prefer it.  

We love that beeswax wraps are great for many things and surfaces. They work well on wood, metal, ceramic, coconut bowls, and even plastic (they do not cling well to flimsy takeaway containers as it is difficult to press the wrap against the container to form a tight seal.)

Take care to avoid direct contact with:
Raw meat, raw fish, or deli meats. Instead, put them into a bowl and cover.
All sources of heat. Including warm water, microwaves, oven, hot cars, dishwashers, and hot food.

Does your beeswax wrap need a refresh? View our video inThe Ultimate Beeswax Wrap Starter Guide.

Avoid harsh soap(that contains alcohol)
Alcohol dissolves beeswax, choose a gentle soap or dilute before using them to clean your wraps.

Do not use abrasive sponge or brush.
Scrubbing will cause the wrap to flake (if this happens - do not panic, check out our video on how to restore old beeswax wraps.)

Dedicated wrap for food with a strong odour.
The wrap will absorb the smell, use a dedicated wrap for your onions and garlics!

Freezer friendly.
Our wraps are great in the freezer, just take care to let the wrap warm up to room temperature before unwrapping (wax is brittle when cold).

Dough's best friend.
Our wraps are perfect for guarding your rising bread dough! Oil the wrap side that may come into contact with the dough to prevent the dough from sticking.

Depending on how dirty your wraps are, you can clean them using one of these methods:

Wipe clean with a damp towel orsponge cloth: suitable for lightly soiled wraps.

Rinse under cold water: suitable for wraps that comes into contact with sauces and needs a wash.

Rinse in cold soapy water: suitable for oily or heavily soiled wraps.

Allow your wraps to dry completely before storing in the refrigerator.

After each use, clean your wraps and allow to air dry completely before storing. We recommend storing your beeswax wraps in the refrigerator.

Our wraps are made from 100% natural ingredients with no preservatives and additives. Jojoba oil in particular has a shelf life of two years at room temperature and twice that long if keep refrigerated. Shielding them from the hot and humid weather will help you get the most out of your wraps.

Are you facing these problems?

• Flaking or cracking
• Limp and no longer clings
• Washed with harsh soap or alcohol
• Scrubbed with an abrasive brush or sponge
• Came into contact with hot water, or heat source 

Don't throw the wrap away!

You can repair them using our mending bar.

Alternatively, the wraps are 100% compostable. Cut them into small pieces and bury them in your garden.

Better yet, use them as fire starters by cutting them into strips, roll them into a ball and light.

Depending on the extent of damage (and the amount of wax left on your wrap), you may be able to revive your wraps just by popping them into the oven for a couple of minutes for the wax to redistribute itself or you can purchase our mending barto top up the wax and your wraps will be good as new.
