This is a special offer for those who just want to buy bars of the wax blend to make your own wraps, and don't need the sample wrap included in our standard kit.
You have three options when selecting blocks:
Packaged Kit: Select this option to have each 120 g block packaged individually with a full instruction sheet in a compostable cellophane bag. Best option if you're giving as a gift.
Unpackaged block with 1 instruction sheet per purchase: We'll ditch the cellophane bag, and just include one instruction sheet with your purchase, regardless of how many 120 g blocks you choose to buy. Best option if you want to make multiple wraps yourself.
Unpackaged block only: We'll send your 120 g blocks with only their protective paper wrap (otherwise they'd stick to everything on the way to you!). No cellophane bag, no instruction sheet. Best option if you've been here before, you know what you're doing and don't need more packaging or instructions.
There’s no feeling quite like the achievement of using something you’ve made yourself – and it's so easy for you to make your very own beeswax wraps, using our special beeswax blend.
It’s as simple as selecting your fabric, shaving or grating your wax blend onto the fabric, and infusing the wax blend into the fabric with heat from either an oven or iron.
No special equipment, no measuring, pre-melting or blending required.
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.
There’s enough beeswax blend in a 120 gram block to cover over HALF A METRE of fabric, so you could make:
- 10 wraps of 20 x 25 cm, or
- 6 wraps of 30 x 30 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.
And since they say a picture is worth a thousand words, here’s a short video of Leo making a wrap using the oven method:
A few more things you might want to know:
What’s in the blend?
Pure New Zealand beeswax, damar tree resin and jojoba oil.
I know what’s in the kit, but 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.
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 :)
