Materials Needed:

  • 100% cotton fabric (cut into squares or rectangles of your preferred size)

  • Jojoba oil
  • Delune's Pure Essential Oils of your choice
  • Parchment paper
  • An old baking sheet
  • A paintbrush
  • Tongs

Choosing the Right Essential Oils:

When selecting essential oils for your beeswax food wraps, consider scents that are fresh, clean, and have antimicrobial properties. Here are a few popular options to get you started:

  • Lemon: Fresh, zesty, and uplifting
  • Lavender: Calming and soothing with a touch of floral elegance
  • Tea tree: Clean, medicinal, and antimicrobial
  • Grapefruit: Bright, energizing, and invigorating

Feel free to mix and match Delune's Pure Essential Oils to create your perfect beeswax wrap scent.

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Preheat your oven to 200°F (93°C).

  2. Place your fabric pieces on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, ensuring they do not overlap.

  3. In a small bowl, mix together 1 cup of beeswax pellets (or grated beeswax), 2 tablespoons of jojoba oil, and 20-30 drops of your chosen Delune's Pure Essential Oils.

  4. Sprinkle the beeswax mixture evenly over the fabric pieces.

  5. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven for 5-10 minutes, or until the beeswax has melted completely.

  6. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and use a paintbrush to spread the melted beeswax mixture evenly over the fabric, ensuring complete coverage.

  7. Use tongs to carefully lift the beeswax-coated fabric off the parchment paper and hold it up for a few seconds to let the excess wax drip off.

  8. Allow the beeswax wraps to air-dry and harden, which should take only a few minutes.

Tips for Usage and Application:

  • Use your DIY beeswax food wraps to cover bowls, wrap sandwiches, or store produce.
  • To clean your beeswax wraps, gently wash them with cool water and mild soap, then air-dry.
  • Beeswax wraps should last up to a year with proper care. When they start to lose their effectiveness, simply reapply the beeswax mixture following the same steps above.

Safety Precautions:

  • Keep the beeswax wraps away from heat sources, as they may melt.
  • Do not use beeswax wraps to store raw meats or fish.
  • Use caution when using essential oils around pregnant women or individuals with allergies.

Upgrade your kitchen essentials and make a positive impact on the environment with these charming, reusable, and eco-friendly DIY beeswax food wraps infused with Delune's Pure Essential Oils!
