  • beeswaxwraps – the thoughtful alternative to clingfilm

    £14.50

    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.

    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 dinner candle pair dipped

    £10.00

    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!

    Beeswax dinner candle pair, handrolled with fine glittered spiral edge

    £8.50

    These we love to make by decorating a sheet of ‘foundation’ wax with the finest dusting of glitter which highlights the spiral top to the wax and then hand rolling each candle.

    It’s a traditional activity, cathartic and lovely for the hands. Foundation is the sheet of wax, imprinted with the honeycomb and given to the bees as a base for them to draw their honeycomb. For bees to make wax they have to consume vast amounts of honey; for 1lb weight of wax bees need to eat 5lb weight of honey (having collected and created it first of course). So we help them along by providing the sheet wax in a frame.

    On opening the natural beeswax candles they smell beautifully of honey. The coloured options lose this sweetness during the processing and retain all the natural goodness of beeswax candles.

  • Fascinating Facts Tea Towel

    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’

    This is good quality linen union combination cloth, printed in the UK. 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!
