What is a beeswax wrap?

What is beeswax and why is it good?
Beeswax is the building material that bees use to create their hive. It is a durable material that both preserves heat, is waterproof and protects against moisture. Beeswax also has antibacterial properties, and therefore keeps food fresher for longer.
Beeswax smells faintly of honey, and has a natural yellow color, despite that neither scent nor color is transferred to the food it protects.
Most often, beeswax is harvested at the same time as the honey. It is not only done to usurp the material, but above all to ensure good hygiene in the bee society. Harvesting beeswax therefore does no harm to the bees.
