Cut down on single use plastic wrap, cling film and foil with these reusable food wraps.
Made with cotton cloth, infused with East Lothian pure beeswax, natural pine resin (tree sap) and cold pressed jojoba oil.
This mixture is essentially a pine salve, which is a traditional antibacterial ointment. These materials all hold properties to make the beeswax wraps anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and naturally adhesive. This makes my wraps breathable, re-usable, no nasties will leach into your food and you will feel good about doing your part in helping cut-down on plastic ending up in landfill sites and our oceans. Good for your hands too!
They’re not designed to be used with hot or very drippy foods.
*The warmth of your hand on the wraps is what allows them to shape around things. It’s easiest when they’re at room temperature.
*Don’t wrap raw meat.
*Please don’t toss the cloth when the wax wears off in six months to a year. Creased and otherwise worn looking cloths can be re-waxed indefinitely at home or cut up and composted.
About Jacobite Beeswax Wraps
Beeswax has non-allergenic properties and unlike plastic, beeswax is a natural, nontoxic substance. It has anti-fungal and antibacterial properties helping keep things clean and reducing risks of contamination. Beeswax is also waterproof, yet still breathable, protecting your food from getting wet or wilted while locking in moisture, flavour and freshness.
Our wraps are handmade with East Lothian beeswax, tree resin and jojoba oil infused into 100% cotton cloth. Packaging is 100% recycled paper.
It is best to use a Beeswax Wrap that’s much larger than the objects or food you’re wrapping. For example, a small wax wrap should completely cover the open half of a sliced onion or lime to be effective. When wrapping over bowls or plates, the wraps should fit down at least half way past the edge.
