Ideal for making wraps in larger numbers, our 1 kg block of ready to use beeswax wrap blend takes out the messy measuring and blending, and lets you get right into making your wraps.
This block is a blend of beeswax, damar tree resin and jojoba oil in the perfect ratios, - just add cotton fabric and make your wraps by your preferred method.
FREE SHIPPING: Your block qualifies for free shipping in New Zealand AND we'll include a free 20 x 20 cm beeswax wrap (great to help you know what texture you're aiming for)
SAVE: Purchased as our standard 120 gram blocks, 1 kg of our blend would cost $157.70 - this bulk block saves you $18.70.
We recommend melting the block in a large double boiler or a crockpot/slow cooker, and applying the melted wax to your fabric with a paint brush, and then infusing the wax by your preferred method (either iron or oven method).
And you know the recipe is right, because it’s the same recipe we use on our Dee’s Bees ready-made wraps. Your DIY beeswax wraps will be every bit as flexible, sticky, durable and hygienic as ours.
Each of our standard 120 gram blocks will wax over half a metre of fabric, so this 1 kg block will wax over 4.3 METRES of standard cotton fabric, so you could make:
There’s enough beeswax blend in a 120 gram block to cover over HALF A METRE of fabric, so you could make:
- 85 wraps of 20 x 25 cm, or
- 43 wraps of 30 x 33 cm, or
- the exact sizes and shapes that will best suit your needs.
Our full colour printed instructions tell you all you need to know to make your wraps using your oven or an iron to infuse the blend into the fabric, plus a bunch of handy tips and care instructions. And if there’s any question we missed, just pop on over to our facebook page or drop us an email and we’ll be happy to help.

A few more things you might want to know:
What’s in the blend?
Pure New Zealand beeswax, damar tree resin and jojoba oil.
What else do I need?
- Pure cotton fabric of your choice
- Baking paper
- An oven or iron (your choice of method)
- Scissors – pinking shears if you have them, but ordinary scissors work just fine as the wax blend will hold the fabric edge together.
Where do I get fabric from?
We have a selection of our most popular fabrics available right here on our site: Pure Cotton Fabrics, and because they're the same fabrics we use, you know they'll work perfectly.
Or any fabric store should have suitable fabrics - look for pure cotton in a quilting or craft weight.
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.
