Beeswax Wraps

Beeswax Wraps

These Beeswax food wraps are an easy-to-make, environmentally friendly alternative to plastic cling film. They are easy to fold and seal around food or a bowl to keep food fresh or protect from pests.



Beeswax (either yellow or white)


Jojoba Oil


Pine Rosin 


Fabric to make 8-10approx 30cm x 30cm sheets


Baking Paper & Iron or
Tin Foil & Oven


  1. Crush up the pine rosin to make it a powder. (mortar & pestle, plastic bag with hammer)
  2. Melt the beeswax, jojoba and pine rosin in a glass pyrex jug in a double boiler (see below).
  3. When melted, brush over your pre-cut fabric square - a paint brush works great here
  4. When they are all done put your fabric square between baking paper and iron or place in tin foil and put in the oven. This is so your wax evenly melts into the fabric.
  5. Hang to dry 

Double Boiler
Half fill a saucepan with water, bring to the boil and reduce to a gentle simmer.
Place the oil/beeswax into a pouring pitcher, tempered glass or stainless steel jug small enough to fit inside the saucepan and best if the handle goes over the outside of the pot. Carefully place the bowl onto the simmering water.
