Hi Queen B. I have sent you an email before saying thankyou for your beautiful tealights. But just wanted to thank you again for being solely responsible for starting me on my own candle making journey. It's an amazing experience to make your own little tealights. The process of melting the beeswax and pouring it out of my teapot is so therapeutic. I am now hooked to your gorgeous little jam jar tealights aswell! Before experiencing your candles i honestly had no idea at how awful the average candle was. My husband bought me a christmas candle a few years back and it was very pretty to look at but i couldn't burn it because it would smoke out the room and actually left black soot all over my windows and walls! He now knows not to bother buying me any candles unless the are from you. I know you must get lots of emails like this but i just had to write to you again. I never knew how much joy something so simple as a candle could bring to me and my home. So thankyou (again!) Lots of love to everyone at the hive of Queen B.

Terry Durack, Restaurant Review Flavour of the month "Corn, not porn." "Roll my oats." "It's all about the soil." The messages scrawled over the recycled t-shirts worn by staff at Sydney's newest pop-up restaurant are relentlessly on- message. Greenhouse practically appeared overnight on the water's edge in The Rocks and is currently scheduled to disappear at the end of this month.
According to recent research by Ruhullah Massoudi and Amid Hamidi, scientists from South Carolina State University, "Each time a candle is burned, if it is paraffin, which is basically petroleum-based, it provides really nasty chemicals in the emissions". As part of the research, candles were burned in a special chamber with the contents of the smoke monitored and measured. They found that benzene, toluene and ketones were present in the smoke.* The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has determined that benzene and toluene are probable human carcinogens.
*Benzene has been linked to bone marrow failure disorders like aplastic anaemia, myelodysplastic syndromes, and acute lymphocytic leukaemia. Toluene and ketones are associated with asthma and birth defects.
