Leather and Wood Conditioner

$16.50 Regular price
Type: Household

100% natural and food safe, our blend of beeswax and plant oils is perfect for bringing life back to both wood and leather, protecting and preserving them for years to come. 


We've carefully selected plant oils to work with our beeswax, to give you a low-odour, long-lasting conditioner.   This product has a very soft honey scent which will fade quickly in use.  The oils will not go off, and as our conditioner contains no water it will not dry out in the tin. 


To use:  Apply a thin layer to clean, dry leather or wood with a soft cloth.  Allow to penetrate, then buff to remove any excess.  Further layers can be applied if needed to bring items back to life, and occasional re-application will keep your wood and leather looking new for years.



Suitable for use on wooden bowls and utensils, cutting boards, butcher blocks, wooden furniture and more.


Wood takes a beating in daily use, especially in the kitchen with regular washing, which accelerates the wood drying out, becoming brittle and cracked.  Our leather and wood conditioner replaces the natural plant oils lost from the wood and adds a protective layer of beeswax to hold the oils in and restore the colour and beauty of your wood surfaces.   


Note that the oils cannot penetrate varnished surfaces, so a wood polish will be more suitable for those pieces. 



Suitable for use on leather clothing including motorcycle leathers, furniture and vehicle upholstery, footwear, saddlery and more. 


Leather dries out over time, losing its natural oils and becomes stiff and prone to cracking, which in turn allows moisture and bacteria into the leather.   The natural plant oils in our conditioner feed your leather, restoring softness and flexibility and preventing cracking, while the beeswax adds structure and a protective layer to preserve the leather and protect it from the elements. 


Note that restoring leather will often change its colour and darken it - the leather will have faded over time as it dried out and the colour will come back towards original. 

Do not use on suede or brushed finish leathers. 


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.

Great product. Used it on a coffee table but also on my aluminum window joinery that had faded and it's looking great. Easy online ordering and prompt delivery. Highly recommended.

Great for what I ordered it for

Martin STRAVER (Dunedin, NZ)
Dees Bees Leather + Wood Conditioner

Recently received conditioner and have tried it on some leather chairs. Certainly brings a new shine look to the leather, as yet to try it on some wooden furniture. I have a large kauri dining table so this will be a good test.The order arrived very promptly as they said it would. No complaints.Well done..

Ainsley (Hastings, NZ)
Perfect for working boots!

This product is perfect for keeping our hard working farm boots in good condition. Keeps the leather from getting dry and cracking, and keeps them being waterproof.

Richard (Auckland, NZ)
Good for faded veneer and wood

Even a single application made a big difference to a sideboard and lamp standard almost bleached from exposure to strong light. The wax was not polished after applying, just left to soak in. After several applications they look much healthier, darker and smoother. Intend to keep applying at intervals.
