Make Beeswax Wraps - No more Plastic Wrap

Hi Guys,

I show you how to make Beeswax Wraps so you can make your own and we can reduce waste /land fill and no longer use plastic wrap.

Beeswax wraps are easier to use than plastic wrap, are able to be washed and reused over and over again.

I roll my beeswax wraps up for safe storage and easy access when I need them.

To Make Beeswax Wraps

Clean and washed Cotton Material - Calico (not treated with chemicals, bleaches and dyes}

Pinking sheers


paint brush

heavy base saucepan


Newspaper or wax paper if your newspaper leaks ink

absorbent paper (I only use paper towel for making beeswax wraps and we are on our second roll in over 10 years} in the kitchen we use washable cloths for cleaning up spills, wiping hands etc

Welcome to Moat Cottage.

Here I show you my homesteading life, how to be more self sustainable & homestead in a small space.

You'll see how to grow organic food, use and preserve the harvest, raise backyard poultry, both Muscovy ducks and Chickens.

You will learn how to make natural remedies, get more prepared for emergency situations, how to organise the homestead, money saving ideas and how to live with less waste.

Here at Moat Cottage, we raise and grow and process some of our own free range meat, organic vegetables and fruit.

We grow all of our herbs for both eating and medicinal purposes as well as hunt, fish and forage.

We preserve our produce for the year ahead by canning, dehydrating and freezing and we work on being prepared for emergency situations.

We live using less waste, we recycle and upcycle and love finding what is needed for a project at the scrap yard, op shop or a garage sale, but only buy what is really needed.

We don't like plastic, chemicals and artificial fragrances and are trying to live an older style life balanced with this modern world lifestyle.

Good health and natural living has always been a high priority for our family and despite this two family members are living with auto immune diseases, myself included.

We focus on what we can do, when we can do it, stay positive and so I make these videos for you on my best days.

Much Love

Elissa Jayne
