Description

Bring your tired beeswax wraps back to life!

Whether you made your wraps with your Dee’s Bees Blend, bought your wraps from another maker, or made them yourself with another recipe, you CAN use our blend to recharge your wraps!

Over time and with ongoing use the wax in your wraps will deplete.  Often the fabric will still have a lot of life left in it, but the wrap simply dries out and no longer sticks the way it did.  

You just need to top-up your wraps with our pre-blended block of beeswax, tree resin and jojoba oil. 

Our recharge wax blend block comes with full instructions to re-wax your wraps, using either your oven or iron.  And because it's exactly the same wax blend as we use to make wraps from scratch, you can even use this block as a 'starter' kit if you just want to make a few new wraps. 

This 50 gram (1.8 oz) recharge block of blend will:

  • make four new wraps of 20 x 25 cm (8x9 in), OR
  • recharge many more tired wraps.

 Be aware that you may need very little wax to recharge – it’s usually just that top layer you need to replace, so this block goes a long way!

 

This kit contains:

  • One x 50 gram block of beeswax wrap blend.
  • One instruction sheet.

 

A few more things you might want to know:

What’s in the blend?

Pure New Zealand beeswax, damar tree resin and jojoba oil.

Why on earth is it in a plastic bag?

Aha!  Gotcha!  It's actually a genuine cellophane bag made from vegetable cellulose - fully biodegradable and home compostable.   We're always happy to cut down on packaging though, so just let us know in the notes section at checkout if you're happy to go packaging free :)

I know what’s in the kit, but what else do I need?

  • Your tired wraps
  • Baking paper or parchment paper
  • An oven or iron (your choice of method)

I bought my wraps from another maker - will your blend work on them?

Yes.  Other makers may use a slightly different recipe and different ratios, but they are all compatible with our blend.  We're willing to bet you might even like your recharged wraps better than your original. 

How long does the blend keep?

We chose our ingredients because of their long life – beeswax and tree resin pretty much last forever, and jojoba oil is actually a plant wax rather than an oil with an indefinite shelf life, so it doesn’t go rancid like oils you will see used in other products.  The result:  You can safely store this blend and your wraps long term, so you can make as many or few wraps as you need right now, and the blend will be just as good to make more in a year, or two, or even longer.

Excellent product!

My 12 y.o. daughter has been able to manage processing the beeswax onto cotton well. She found a big veggie peeler best for cutting the wax up pre: distribution on the fabric.

Foodwrap recharge kit

The product was good but it was difficult to shave off the right amount for my project with a knife. My preference would be to have it in pellet form, if possible, as this would have been easier to work with. Also, some tips on removing wax from tools would have been useful.

Rapt about beeswrap

Rang Dees Bees to get an answer to a question I had about making wraps. Dee was so helpful and explained difference between blended and plain beeswax so I ordered a Make your own Kit and extra wax so as to use my own material. A bit messy but very satisfying and have made some as gifts for friends. I will make more as are great environmentally friendly gifts. I'm grateful for advice given as I wldve ordered the wrong wax and probably been disappointed.

Brilliant service and gorgeous wraps!

Beautiful thick wraps and loved that I could buy good beeswax so I could give it a go myself at home. The fabrics are superb colours. Thanks so much.
