Powdered Gum Rosin in Glass Jar 50g. Powdered gum rosin ethically sourced from India. Hand ground in Australia. Gum rosin is a brittle, crystal like, amber substance. For use in DIY recipes that call for a sticky or gripping ingredient. Packaged in a reusable glass jar with steel screw top lid. 50g.

This powdered gum rosin has been sourced, tried, tested, and hand ground by Ballina Honey - an Australian family-owned business. Ballina Honey sources their gum rosin from the Sumatran Pine Plantation in India. It is food safe and WW (water-white) grade.

How it's made:

  • Firstly, pine resin (the sap from pine trees) is collected and taken to a distillery plant.
  • Here they remove the natural oil, known as turpentine, from the pine resin for export purposes.
  • The turpentine oil is evaporated off the pine resin using a steam distillation method, traditionally done in a copper still.
  • The residue left at the bottom becomes the gum rosin.

Properties:

  • Gum rosin is a brittle, crystal like amber substance.
  • It is often used to make varnishes, sealing wax and various adhesives, due to its sticky and gripping properties.

Uses:

We recommend using gum rosin powder for creating your own DIY food wraps. The ingredient also has several other uses, including;

  • Bowed instruments - adding gum resin to your bow will make the strings easier to grip and will help them vibrate more clearly.
  • Dancers - powdered rosin can be rubbed on the tips and heels of dance shoes to reduce slippage on smooth floors.
  • Gymnasts, rock climbers - athletes rub gum rosin between their hands in order to improve grip.
  • Health and beauty supplies - for making DIY hair and beard wax.
  • Adhesives - as an ingredient.
  • Glues - as an ingredient.
  • Soap - as an ingredient.
  • Sealing wax - as an ingredient.
  • Varnishes - as an ingredient.

Having trouble with it

I bought this to make beeswax wraps but have had a lot of trouble melting it into the wax, not sure what's going wrong as it just clumps into chunks.

Good for DIY wraps

I purchased this gum to create beeswax wraps, it was a bit fiddly to work worth. It is important to make sure that gum is heated up properly to ensure it is evenly blended with the other ingredients.
