    I have octagon bee bars and rectangular bars too. I need some kind of wrapping that will preserve the soap and scent nicely since I like to make a batch and then store bars for later use.

    I don't know about the bee bars - are they the milky way mold ones with the honey comb?

    I use Dan's bands at www.the-sage.com for my 2.5 x 3.5 x 1 inch bars and they work great!

    Yes, they are the bee bars. In a kind of round shape. Can shrink wrap do that as well as the rectangular bars?

    I think you would have to buy the tubing and seal around the open edges first with a sealer...I've never done it, but I think that is how you are supposed to do it.
