If your wrap looks/feels 'tired': Wax from Apis Dorsata, the Asian ‘Rock Ree’, to refresh your Beeswax Wraps.
Beeswax has antibacterial and anti-viral properties and is therefore ideal for storing food.
We use beeswax from the Asian honeybee, Apis dorsata (or ‘Rock Bee’). The bees are much bigger than European honeybees and they live in the wild, in forests and jungles. Their honeycombs can measure up to 1.5 m. The bees attach them to rocks or the branches of tall trees.
Tribal communities in India still have strong links to the forests. Climbing rocks and trees to collect honey and honeycomb can be extremely dangerous. But this time-honoured tradition also helps to protect the forests. It is a sustainable method that provides income to one of the most disadvantaged groups of people.
