Want a different size wrap? We highly recommend making your own - it's easy, eco-friendly and even more economical with our DIY Beeswax Wrap kits.

 * From 6 August 2023 we've switched from jojoba oil to coconut oil.   We love that the coconut oil is grown in our neighbouring Pacific islands and we can help their economies, and the oil is refined right here in New Zealand.  Jojoba is grown in the northern hemisphere, so switching to coconut saves a whole lot of mileage and is the greener more sustainable option. 



We’re all about reducing all sorts of waste, not just plastic.  Your wraps can be individually banded (as pictured), but if you’re buying just for yourself, you’re probably going to only read one of the bands, right? Just select from the drop down whether you want your wraps banded or not, and help us save a few trees.


How To Use Your Beeswax Wraps

Any time you reach for the plastic sandwich bags or plastic wrap, you can probably use a beeswax wrap.

Simply shape and fold your beeswax wrap around your bowl or food, using gentle pressure and the warmth of your hands to create a seal.  

Use for bread, cheese, vegetables or fruit, sandwiches and snacks, and to cover dishes. Safe for use in the fridge and freezer.

Do not use your wrap on raw meat, as the wrap cannot be cleaned with hot water.


How to Care For Your Beeswax Wraps

Your beeswax wraps can easily last a year or more with regular use, with some simple care.

Handwash your wraps in cool water with dishwashing liquid. Do not use hot water, or put in the dishwasher, microwave or oven – you’ll melt the wax right out!

Air dry, and store however is convenient for you - folded in a drawer, or rolled into cylinders in a jar. Do not store in direct summer sunlight.


Refresh Your Beeswax Wraps

If you find after repeated use that the wax is moving away from crease lines or feels a bit uneven, you can easily refresh your wraps by melting the wax to redistribute it. You can use either the oven or iron methods to refresh your wraps, just using the heat to redistribute the existing wax.


Recharge Your Wraps

Over time and with a lot of ongoing use the wax in your wraps will deplete. Often the fabric still has a lot of life in it, but the wrap simply dries out and no longer sticks the way it did.

Great News! You can use our DIY beeswax wrap blend to re-wax your wraps!

Use either the oven or iron method – your choice – just follow the instructions as if you were making a new wrap. Be aware that you may need very little wax – it’s usually just that top layer you need to replace, so go easy.


End of Life

When your wrap finally wears out (or, let's be honest, when you feel the need for a cute new design), your wrap is fully compostable and biodegradable, so you can simply add to your compost bin or just bury in your garden, or even use as a weed matting. If you have a fireplace then your tired wrap will make a wonderful firelighter.


Handmade Just For You

Please note, all our wraps are handmade by an actual living human, so small variations are inevitable.

We will always do our best to send your order out within 2-3 working days, but please note that most of our candles in particular are made to order, which may require a few more days  lead time.  If you need an something in a particularly tight timeline, feel free to drop us an email or give us a call on 06 876 8852 and we'll do our best to help. 


Delivery Costs and Timelines

New Zealand:

Courier delivery $7 flat rate on orders up to $50 value.

FREE COURIER DELIVERY in NZ on orders $50+.   

Delivery Timeline: 2-3 working days after dispatch.


Australia & Rest of World:

 Sadly, due to rising costs of international delivery and extended delivery delays, as of 3 November 2020 we have removed our international shipping option. 


We hope to resume international deliveries when the situation improves, but for now we believe this is our only option to avoid disappointment to customers.   


International Orders and Bee Products

Different countries have different rules around importation of natural products, and it's common for beeswax not to be allowed in order to protect the health of their local bees.  We get it.  After all, Kev and I (Dee) are beekeepers, first and foremost.

HOWEVER, we have very tight biosecurity and good bee health here in New Zealand, and as many of our products are a blend of beeswax, tree resin and other oils, there is no risk they will ever end up being used directly in a beehive, as a block of pure beeswax might.   

Therefore we've had no problem with border restrictions, and as at the date of writing this, our products have been sent without problem to Australia, the US, Canada, the UK, and a dozen other countries . 

Some countries may have various border or import charges - please note that you will be responsible for any such charges. 


What about packaging?  Do you use plastic?

We're committed to eliminating plastic wherever we can - the clear bags our kits are packaged in are NOT plastic.  They are genuine cellophane, made from vegetable cellulose and are fully biodegradable and home compostable. 

And we're very happy to announce that the black courier bags we use are also NOT plastic!  They are made from plants (mostly corn I believe), and are fully biodegradable, and home compostable.  And, a little oddly, they smell like fresh toast, or maybe popcorn!

It's not just plastic we're about reducing though - You'll see on our naked DIY blocks you have the option to buy without packaging, and on every one of our ready-made wrap pages we encourage customers to let us know if they don't need individual packaging on the wraps.

Adri van Lith (Wellington, NZ)
Gorgeously vibrant sticky beeswax wraps

I am so so so delighted with these gorgeously vibrant sticky wraps oozing with the delicious beeswax smell.

You can't believe how many months/years I've angst over wanting to buy some, and seen multiple versions in this burgeoning market, yet never was completely taken by the quality, fabrics and price.

These ones stole my heart immediately because what I felt was missing often was the addition of the damar resin to ensure really good wrapping, vibrant fabric colours and prints and the alignment that your are first and foremost beekeepers having a relationship with the bees that produce the wax for these wraps.

Thank you so very much. My enjoyment of lunch has doubled, plus all their other multifarious uses. A far cry from my reused paper bags, waxed paper and all the motley assortments my food has been subjected to, until finding your product.
