Haruka Miyashita, a candle artist and the owner of Haruzion soap & candle, is teaching everyone how to make her original beeswax cotton wraps on her YouTube Channel. Her beeswax wraps stick perfectly to all sorts of things. The video is in Japanese only, so I wrote down the recipe in English below the video.


What you will need

・ 100g Beeswax pellets
・ 10g Jojoba Oil
・ 5g Coconut Oil
・ 5g Pine resin (If you have) 
100% cotton fabric (need to be thin)

・Parchment paper, newspaper, silicon molds, scissors , a scale, a isolating cup or a small pot, and an iron


1. Jojoba oil is for stickiness and coconut oil is for antioxidation.
2.If you don’t have jojoba oil, you can replace it with coconut oil.
3.The fabric should be thin and made of 100% cotton.
4.It is highly recommended that you use quality beeswax pellets.

1. Make beeswax mix

Combine beeswax pellets, jojoba oil, coconut oil, and pine resin in a isolating cup or a small pot. And melt it over heat. When it melts completely, stir it well with chopsticks to make the liquid consistent.

Pour the beeswax mix into silicon molds. Then, cool it down until hardened.

2. Make a beeswax wrap

Cut your fabric into the sizes you prefer. 

Lay a piece of parchment paper over a few sheets of newspaper and place the fabric on top. Tear the beeswax mix cube into small pieces and place them evenly on the fabric.

Cover the fabric with another piece of parchment paper and then Iron it. Move the iron slowly until the beeswax melts into the fabric.

Put off the parchment paper to see if there are any spots that need more wax. Put the beeswax mix on those spots again and repeat the same process. When the wax is evenly melted into the material of the fabric, Cool the fabric down and let the wax set.
