  • beeswaxwraps – the thoughtful alternative to clingfilm

    £14.50

    Re-usable handmade beeswax food wraps. These wraps are all the buzz 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.

    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!

    Using the beeswax from Keith’s bees in the Surbiton area, his sister Alison is making them for us as well as us at ‘head hive’! 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!

    Made from 100% cotton and pure local beeswax – nothing else

  • Beeswax small stumpy candle dipped

    £7.50£12.50

    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!

    Beeswax candles can develop a ‘bloom’ it is a natural process of beeswax, ageing and environment creates a milky and matt finish on the wax. A bloom is 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!

    We’ve photographed the candles showing the wax ‘polished’ and shiny, and matt and milky with ‘bloom’.

    Fascinating Facts Tea Towel – two coloured – temporarily out of stock – early 2022 hopefully!

    £9.50

    We just had to share some fascinating facts with everyone about our clever bees.

    Robin is the artist and drew our bee as well as the ‘skep’ a traditional beehive made from straw and we designed the text to follow a flying bee.  Facts such as ‘a queen bee can lay up to 1500 eggs a day’ need sharing.

    This is the second incarnation, a development of our first range and these are hand screen printed, on unbleached cotton, in Norfolk by Witts Design, our neighbour at a number of markets – we love to collaborate! https://www.wittsdesign.com/

    Presented tightly folded with a corrugated card and label around this is a great present for anyone interested in bees.

    We did sell one to someone who was going to embroider and paint the towel to use in the classroom – what a great idea!

  • Gift Wrapping, bag only

    £5.00

    GIFT WRAPPING  buy on this page only if you would like to buy our gift bags without a purchase

    Having spent holidays in Europe, and of course shopping too, we love it when sales assistants ask if the item is a present and then wrap with special paper and ribbon.

    One year in Denmark we must have spent 20 minutes watching our gifts being beautifully wrapped, and were reminded of Rowan Atkinson in Love Actually spending an age overly wrapping the present – such a funny scene!

    We struggle with gift boxes, often in another box with enormous printed ribbons which really have no use but are too good to throw into the recycling bin.

    We’ve not compromised but been creative and to date our gift wrapping has proven very popular.

    Your choice for gift presentation is a bag made with a soft cotton print fabric, tied with a ribbon and a gift tag (we can even custom print these for you as we recently did for a dinner at the House of Commons).

    We hope the recipient will either use the bag for wrapping a special piece of jewellery, re-use for another present or even use in handbags/tool box/briefcases for keeping something special!

    Two choices of design currently

    Bees with wildflowers

    Festive red with gold twigs and robins

    Charge is £5.00 otherwise to buy with a cream/soap etc then choose the gift wrapping option required with the purchase
