Kitchen Starter Pack Beeswax Wrap - Dreamtime
1 x Medium Wrap (27cm x 27cm)
1 x Large Wrap (37cm x 37cm)
1 x Mega Wrap (54cm x 54cm)
Our Dreamtime range of Beeswax Wraps use a selection of Jijaka fabric. Jijaka is an Aboriginal word meaning 'kangaroo'. Jijaka authentic designs tell the stories of Aboriginal people who have lived on the Australian continent for more than 40,000 years. Their corroborree ceremonies trace the ancient Dreamtime journeys of spirit ancestors, as they traveled the vast Australian landscape.
Sales of Jijaka designs directly support Aboriginal artistic, social and cultural programs.
Made with pure cotton fabric, pure Australian beeswax, organic coconut oil and tree resin.
Queen B beeswax wraps are a natural, biodegradable alternative to plastic wrap.
Uses: These wraps will stick to themselves using the warmth of your hands. Simply wrap around the food item (cheese, fruit, veggies), bowl or plate of food to create a seal.
Cleaning: Rinse between uses in lukewarm water with a mild dish soap (like sunlight soap).
Refreshing your wraps: Depending on your usage, your wraps should last between 6-12 months. If they start looking a bit haggard, lay between sheets of baking paper and iron (or pop on baking paper in a 110 degree celcius oven for a few minutes).

Expertise | Usability | Made by Hand | Fabrics | Proprietary Methods of Working with Beeswax
Expertise - we've got 20 years of skin in the game. That's tens of thousands of hours of expertise working with beeswax. Owner, Cate Burton, is the beeswax judge for the National Honey Show and is an acknowledged global expert in beeswax.
Made by Us and Made by Hand - we're control freaks at Queen B. We hand make every single candle and wrap we sell in our purpose fitout hive here on Sydney's Northern Beaches.
The next 2 largest brands in Australia outsource everything - their fabric is imported and sent directly to another company who wax it and sent to another for cutting and packing. How on earth can you guarantee the quality of your product if you don't even make it?
And then there are literally hundreds (if not thousands) of wraps made in a home garage or kitchen. Are you really going to risk wrapping your food in that?
Fabrics - From our beautiful ranges Made with Liberty Fabrics to our collaboration with Jocelyn Proust, we promise to bring you an ever fashionable range of wraps with which to adorn your fridge and lunch box! We're bringing the stylish to sustainable.
Usability - before we launch any product at Queen B we ask ourselves whether the world needs our version of that product?
In the case of beeswax candles it was a resounding yes as beeswax candles had stopped being made professionally many decades prior due to the price of beeswax. All the beeswax candles we came across looked dirty, didn't burn properly and were inconsistent.
In the case of beeswax lip balm, the answer was no... there are already great products on the market that we use ourselves.
In the case of beeswax wraps the answer was again a resounding YES! All of the wraps on the market that we tested were either too brittle (so you couldn't get a seal with the warmth of your hands); had too much beeswax in the mix (causing them to crack when unwrapping things straight out of the fridge) and/or were just downright ugly. The world most definitely needed wraps that were fit for purpose... malleable, easy to seal, not too tacky, not too dry, not too stiff and most definitely not ugly!
Proprietary Methods - Our methods of cleaning beeswax (using only water, filtration and time) are proprietary and carefully guarded. Our decades of working with beeswax have also taught us exactly how to respect and work with this extraordinary material and our hive dedicates almost 500 square metres to this pursuit.
Queen B is no backyard or kitchen table business... we take our commitment to your health and wellbeing seriously and hand make products with that in mind!
Should you ever be anything other than completely delighted with anything that you purchase from Queen B, please contact us pronto... we are not a nameless, faceless business with a call centre overseas - we're a passionate bunch of humans trying our darndest to make a difference.
