Beeswax Wrap Recipe
Beeswax wraps may be the latest rage but given they’re organically produced, biodegradable, sustainable and rapidly replacing single-use plastic wrapping, we certainly hope they’re here to stay.

How to make your own beeswax wrap
- Melt one-part pine-tree resin* with two parts beeswax and a dollop of coconut oil.
- Cut a piece of 100% cotton into a rectangular shape, to a size of your choosing. The fabric does not need to be hemmed but an attractive finish can be achieved by cutting the edges with pinking shears.
- Lay the fabric rectangle on a smooth, clean surface and coat it with the beeswax mix, using a paintbrush.
*Pine tree resin can be found at selected online suppliers. Claire recommends GOT resin from India.
