Making your own Beeswax Wraps just got WAY easier!
So making my own Beeswax food wraps is a lot of fun, but as I’ve mentioned before, it’s a little messy! Pine Resin is sticky, think tree sap sticky..so the less I have to melt and mix and blend, the better!
This new Beeswax Wrap Starter Bar is just what I was looking for! This takes all the work out of making your own beeswax food wraps. The bar already contains all the necessary ingredients, including beeswax, jojoba oil, pine resin, and coconut oil. Just as a bonus, all the ingredients are pure, natural, and domestic to the US. No weird additives, and each is handmade!
Things you’ll need:
- Beeswax Starter Bar
- Paintbrush that you will use exclusively for your beeswax food wraps
- Cookie sheet
- Large pot
- Fabric squares, cut to size of choice
- Heat stove and place beeswax starter bar in a pot.
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
- Place your fabric on a cookie sheet.
- When the wax mixture is melted, spread it onto your fabric with a paintbrush.
- Be sure the mixture soaks in deep to the fabric, soaking it through to the other side.
- Some prefer to put in a preheated oven for about 3-4 minutes to ensure it’s heated well and soaked through.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool and dry.
I have used any thin, cotton fabric to make my own wraps. Even old pillow cases, sheets, or t-shirts can be upcycled in food wraps. This bar makes this so much easier!
