"I really want pure beeswax melts - just beeswax and fragrance - why do you use coconut oil in them?"
I hear you, and you know I do love pure beeswax, but I also want you to have a great wax melt that carries fragrances well. On its own, beeswax has a higher melting point and tends to swallow added fragrances, so we marry it up with a bit of beautiful Pacific coconut oil to help our melts throw their fabulous aromas far and wide.

Delivery Costs and Timelines
$7 within urban areas, $9 to rural areas. (2-3 working days after dispatch) Free delivery on orders over $100.
We currently send via Courierpost.
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.
Route Shipping Insurance
At checkout you'll see the option to purchase Route shipping insurance on your order.
It's usually a very small cost, and Route is underwritten by Lloyds of London, so you can trust them to pay for a replacement for your order if it is lost for any reason.
We don't think this insurance is really necessary in New Zealand, so feel free to untick if you like, but we highly recommend it for international orders, as these travel via untracked airmail (tracked is about four times the price!).
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.
