    Beeswax wraps? 6th Mar 18 at 2:17 PM
    I've done this as a separate thread. What experience do any of you have of these? I 've got a 15% discount - worthwhile if they are useful, but still a fair cost if they're not.
    Thanks!

    I've made some. Yes they are useful but I wouldn't pay the price they cost made when they are so cheap and simple to make

    Online. The usual A-Z place.
    I could dream to wide extremes, I could do or die: I could yawn and be withdrawn and watch the world go by.

    I'm not sure how to be sure that the bought beeswax would be 'food grade'. I'm thinking about buying some with my discount to get the feel of them, and seeing it I can find a beekeeper who will sell me some wax.
    Thanks all

    I've seen beeswax for sale on honey stalls at Farmers Markets.
