If you feel a little residue on your fingers after using a beeswax wrap, rub both hands together to quickly rub in. It’s good for your skin, like a salve. The stickiness of the wrap is stronger when new or when warm and gets less over time.
All recipes are different, some use more resin, some less. Some recipes use coconut oil or pine tree resin. Our wraps are made with food grade beeswax, plant resin from the dammar tree and jojoba oil (which is a wax). Wraps made with just beeswax are slightly sticky but it is the inclusion of plant resin that helps the wrap stick to itself, china or glassware.
The beeswax wrap stickiness is activated with the warmth of your hands, when cold they are not very sticky. Over time the stickiness wears off. To make the bee wrap last longer use mild washing up liquid like Ecover.Beeswax Wrap Refresher Blocks
