Handmade in Nova Scotia using beeswax from the Annapolis Valley, Hive to Home's beeswax food wraps are a sustainable alternative to plastic wrap.
An easy alternative to plastic, sandwich bags, and some plastic containers, wraps also smell delicious.

Beeswax wraps are made by hand and no two are the same. Therefore patterns may vary from photograph.
Fabric is hand washed with EcoSuds Soap Nuts, air dried, and ironed.
The wraps are made with beeswax from Cosman & Whidden Nova Scotia Honey and jojoba oil. This local beeswax isn't bleached and gives the wraps a fresh yellow tint.
Use the warmth from your hands to form the wrap or fold and tie it.
If you’re going to use the warmth of your hands to form them around food, scrunching them up first helps. Don’t be shy about crumpling them!
Some people prefer to fold them around food and use the string the hold the wrap in place.
Safe for the fridge or left out on the counter. Avoid raw meat, direct sunlight and direct heat. (Heat can pull the wax off the wrap).
Rinse with room temperature/cold water.
When the wax on the wrap has become tired or worn off, the wrap can be rewaxed or used as a reusable cotton kitchen wipe.
