Re-usable handmade beeswax food wraps. These wraps are all the buzz in New Zealand and Australia for wrapping food as they keep food fresh + moist with no need for clingfilm, plastic bags or boxes nor aluminium foil
Following the suggestion of a local crafter who’d just returned from the Antipodes we just had to introduce these to our ‘hive products’ range. Using the beeswax from Keith’s bees in the Surbiton area, his sister Alison is making them for us. Whilst we were planning the making of these Alison and her family had come to the conclusion, as so many of us have, that we must reduce our consumption and thoughtless use of plastic. Robin’s mother used wax cloth in the kitchen, but I didn’t find it until clearing her kitchen after she passed away and couldn’t work out what it was, that was over 35 years ago and now we know!
Designed to wrap sandwiches, cover any food or leftovers, with the exception of raw meat or fish. Either wrap the food or cover containers with these flexible cloths. Use the warmth of your hands to seal the wrap. Beeswax does not absorb smells nor bacteria which is why these are so perfect!
They are reuseable, just wash in cool or cold water with a little mild detergent and air dry
When your wrap looks worn out simply place on a piece of baking parchment in a cool oven (110 0c) for a few minutes to refresh. Use and re-use – save the planet 1 wrap at a time!
Made from 100% cotton and pure local beeswax – nothing else
Hand dipped in a workshop in Alison’s home county of Cumbria with English beeswax. This is a traditional method of dipping a length of taut wick into molten wax, removing it, allowing the wax to cool and repeating multiple times to build up thin layers of wax and eventually creating these superb candles.
On opening these candles smell beautifully of honey.
Beeswax is the ‘King’ of all waxes, it burns slowly with a perfect flame and beeswax are the only candles which apparently don’t pollute the atmosphere. In fact, they produce a negative ion when they burn thus making dust and pollen drop form the air. Are these the perfect candles to burn for hay fever sufferers? We think so!
We’ve photographed the candles showing the wax ‘polished’ and shiny, and matt and milky with ‘bloom’. Bloom is a natural process of beeswax, ageing and environment creates a milky and matt finish on the wax – the bloom – preferred by Americans apparently. If your candles develop a bloom and you prefer them looking shiny, then all that’s needed is to rub gently with a fine cloth and voila!

Bees protect their hives with this sticky resinous material collected from the sap of trees as it is anti bacterial, anti fungal and anti viral. It has been used forever to aid in the healing of wounds which is why we just had to make this cream.
Our own propolis tincture incorporated into our fragrance free cream formulation will transfer these qualities to our skin.
We have trialled this cream for more than 24 months – only on our human friends – and the responses have been incredibly positive.
People with psoriasis, itchy skin and eczema have reported real and lasting benefits and are now repeat customers.
Young people with acne and psoriasis have found the cream immensely helpful too.
Last summer, whilst tending our bees I was stung by a bee as well as some nettles. I always react badly to both. So, practising what I preach, I applied this cream and had not one minute’s reaction from either sting – how exciting is that!

Made to a traditional recipe combining our own beeswax with almond oil and a splash of vitamin E (wheat germ) – possibly the simplest and most effective lip balm there is. We have deliberately omitted fragrance or flavour as we believe that folk are tempted to lick their lips more, creating a vicious circle.
Our lip balm gently moisturises leaving a fine film of protective beeswax leaving lovely soft kissable lips, just as nature intended.
The balm in the stick is firmer than that in the potlet making it very easy to use, even with gloves on.
Del Brown wrote a superb review about our lip balm – click on his name to read in full.
“….Not everyone wants a lip product with a fruity fragrance, so being fragrance free, both men and women feel comfortable using it. Unlike petroleum based lip balms that just form a barrier on the skin, the natural oils and bees wax in this product penetrate deep into the skin, hydrating dry lips and making them feel soft and comfortable.
This easy to use, fuss free lip balm is a winter essential and fully Del Brown Approved!”
For those with a nut allergy we have made this lip balm substituting olive oil for the almond oil – just ask.
4.5ml stick – £ 4.50 (a softer lip balm is also available in a potlet).
Spring has sprung and we’re pleased to reintroduce Bluebell to celebrate the end of winter! Only available for a limited time.
This intensive and luxurious hand cream really hits the spot for weary hands, it is absorbed easily, leaving your hands feeling supple and pampered. The combination of our honey and beeswax with plant oils ensure that even the weariest hands are revitalised in seconds.
The quintessential perfume of the English bluebell is reminiscent of sunny day in late spring and a haze of blue carpet and woodland walks. Bluebells are one of the few flowers whose scent cannot be distilled naturally, so it’s our only cream with parfum, a truly effective one which nourishes, moisturises and protects.
Make this your hands’ best friend. Keep it in your bag, your car, your office, your garden shed, wherever you like to be, keep some of this nearby.
We make this cream in 2 sizes
100ml airless pump £ 16.00 – perfect for home, office, garden shed and better value
30ml airless pump £ 8.00 – great for on the move; handbags, travelling, pockets and the perfect gift (apologies the smaller tube in the photo is now an airless pump and we haven’t yet re-photographed)

The combination of natural seed oils, specifically chosen for their moisturising properties, fused with our honey and beeswax, create this luxurious, light and easily absorbed body cream
Jasmine evokes memories of summer evenings and gentle breezes, lifting the spirits, relaxing the body and dissolving emotional barriers. It is widely considered to be the most exotic and sensual of all scents and takes around 7.6 million flowers to produce one kilogram of Jasmine essential oil
All our creams last well throughout the day. Apply morning and night, and whenever else you want to.
It’s a truly effective cream which nourishes, moisturises and protects, and, as with all our creams, it is quickly absorbed without being sticky nor oily
