WELCOME TO HIVE TO HOME
Hi, I'm Chelsey
I'm so happy you're here!
Hive to Home creates beeswax food wraps as a sustainable, renewable, and friendly alternative to plastic.
Patterns, shapes, and sizing are flexible; they're always changing! The wraps are made by (my) hand(s) and no two are the same.
Fabric is hand washed with EcoSuds Soap Nuts , air dried, and ironed.
The wraps are made with beeswax from Nova Scotian farmers: Cosman & Whidden Nova Scotia Honey, which is located in the beautiful Annapolis Valley.
This local beeswax gives the wraps a fresh yellow tint.
Jojoba oil is purchased package free at Luminate Wellness Co.
An easy alternative to plastic, sandwich bags, and some plastic containers, wraps also smell delicious.
Use the warmth from your hands to form the wrap or fold and tie it.
Safe for the fridge or left out (avoid direct sunlight / direct heat/ raw meat. Heat can pull the wax off the wrap).
Rinse with room temp/ cold water.
Contact us to learn about rewaxing your wraps.
If you’re going to use the warmth of your hands to form them around food, scrunching them up first helps.
Don’t be shy about crumpling them! Some people prefer to fold them around food and use the string the hold the wrap in place. I like to crumble mine right after I make them and then use the warmth of my hands to form them every time.
When the wax on the wrap has become tired or worn off, the wrap can be rewaxed or used as a reusable cotton kitchen wipe.
I’m Chelsey. A little bit about me:
•I'm passionate about the environment, specifically waste (recycling, organics, garbage, refundables). I’m fascinated with where it goes, where it can go, where it comes from, patterns, diversion, all of it. This is why I care about beeswax wraps, the bees, and reducing waste.
•I have a Bachelor of Science with a double major in Environment, Sustainability and Society & Environmental Science from Dalhousie University.
I am a Master Composter Recycler.
I manage a large Buy Nothing Facebook Group.
I love a litter pick up!
•Anything I can put into a mason jar, I do.
Last time I counted I had over 70 houseplants.
I'm on a journey to get backyard chickens.
•I love exploring Nova Scotia (doing a Frenchy's tour), visiting farmers’ markets, and crocheting.
•If Netflix is on in our home then The Office is on.
Thanks for stopping by!
