Beekeeping in a warre hive is as natural as it gets – no plastic frames, no chemical treatments, and no feeding the bees sugar syrup, which means the wax they use to make their wraps hasn’t been contaminated in any way.
I have several Warre Wraps in my home. They are currently covering bowls, bottles and my loaf of Rye sourdough from the bakery. I have found them very easy to use and that my food has stayed fresher with a wrap then when they used to be stored in Cling wrap. We ran out of Cling wrap about 3 weeks ago and we are yet to replace it.
How to use a Warre Wrap: Place or fold over a jar or bowl, sandwich, cheese, vegetables or leftover food. Use the warmth of your hands to mould your wrap into place. It will stick to itself and to most surfaces.
How to care for your wrap : Wash your wrap with cool water and a mild non-chemical soap with a wash cloth. Keep away from heat sources. They do not recommend using their wraps with raw meat or greasy and acidic foods.
Warre Wraps also donate 50% of all sales of their bee print wraps to Save The Bees Australia. An organisation dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of bees and relocating hives and colonies to safe places. Their motto is NO BEES = NO LIFE.
