|How to use for beeswax wraps||
To use the resin in beeswax wraps, melt the resin together with beeswax and jojoba oil in a double boiler on the stovetop, stirring often to combine. It is suggested to use a saucepan set aside for this purpose, not one used for food, as the resin is very sticky. Cover baking sheets with baking or parchment paper and lay your fabric onto these. Once the wax/oil mix has melted, paint the mixture on to your fabric until fully covered. Then place them in the oven (low heat) for a few minutes to help saturate the fabric. Remove from the oven and hang over a drying rack until completely cooled.
For the ratio of ingredients for beeswax wraps try 1 part resin – 4 parts beeswax – 1 jojoba oil.
For any excess wax/oil mixture, we’ve seen clever people pour their leftover mix into small silicone molds then allowed to cool. These can be grated and reused for the next batch of wraps!
