BEESWAX WRAPS

  • 1 cup of beeswax
  • 1/4 cup of gum rosin 
  • 2 Tbls jojoba oil
  • Large glass jar
  • Pot to boil water in
  • Baking Tray
  • Baking paper or aluminium foil
  • Soft bristle brush (a paint brush will work)

Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
Choose your fabric offcuts or cut up some clean clothes that you want to up cycle. Cotton, linen, and rayon work best.
Cut your fabric into an assortment of sizes. These can be any shape but we would recommend squares and rectangles.
Boil a pot of water on the stove (use an old pot that you don’t mind getting wax on it), once boiling you can reduce to a simmer to keep the water hot. 
Fill a large glass jar with the beeswax, gum rosin and jojoba oil, and set the jar in the pot of water.
Melt the mixture in the double boiler,stirring occasionally until it has completely melted.
Line a baking tray with aluminium foil or baking paper.
Lay out one of your pieces of fabric onto the tray with the patterned side facing up.
Drizzle melted mixture onto the fabric (approx 2-3 tablespoons).
Place tray in the oven for a couple of minutes to allow the mixture to melt further and spread into the fibres of the fabric. Once melted take the tray out of the oven and use a brush to evenly spread the mixture, ensuring the whole piece of fabric is covered. (You only need to apply the mixture to one side as it will melt through the fabric, coating it completely)
Hang piece of fabric to dry. The wax dries really quickly, it should be cool in 5-10 minutes.

Makes approximately 6-8 medium sized wraps
