Hexton Bee Company Beeswax Food Wraps are a totally natural and eco-friendly alternative to single-use traditional cling-wrap. Handmade with all natural ingredients including 100% cotton, pure NZ beeswax from our own sustainably managed hives, tree resin, jojoba and manuka oil, the wraps are naturally antibacterial and will allow your food to breathe, unlike plastic.
Our beeswax food wraps are natural, eco-friendly, reusable and compostable. They also allow your food to breathe, keeping it fresh the natural way! Use our reusable beeswax wraps to cover foods such as fresh fruit and vegetables, cheeses and herbs. They are excellent for covering bowls, leftovers or storing snacks and sandwiches.
Not only do beeswax wraps replace the use of plastic, they also help in preventing food wastage as they extend the life of food dramatically. Try wrapping half an avocado to prove it, they can last up to a week in a beeswax food wrap.

We are often asked how to care for beeswax wraps!
They are truly easy to look after! Simply wipe clean with a clean cloth or rinse with cold water and eco-friendly soap if necessary. When cold, the coating will stiffen which makes it a great stable surface that can handle a bit of scrubbing. You can blot them dry with a clean tea towel or simply hang or place on a dish rack to dry.
Avoid using hot water as this can cause the coating to melt and reduce the wraps effectiveness.
The wraps can be frozen for short periods of time which makes them great for lunchbox snacks. The coating will harden when frozen so bring it back to room temperature slowly to avoid cracking the beeswax.
Store your wraps in a clean dry place for next time.
Use your wrap to cover rising dough.It is breathable and can also be used as a non-stick surface to knead your dough - a win-win!
Some sauces may stain your wrap, be sure to clean them as soon as possible after using. These stains won't affect the way the wrap works.
If your edges start to fray, simply trim any loose ends. A pair of pinking shears is best for this if you have them
You can refresh your wrap if it is starting to look tired, simply leave on a baking tray in the afternoon sun.
Your wrap should last around 1 year depending on usage and is easily compostable once you have finished.
