"Hi! thanks so much..." from K.Merrifield
Hi! Thanks so much for the delightful extras you sneaked into my last order - beautiful!
Life etc May 2007
As the days are becoming shorter and the air a little colder, it's a perfect time to create a mood of peace inside your home by doing something simple: lighting candles. The greenest option is to choose beeswax candles, which are free from petroleum products and chemical. According to ecostore biome in Brisbane, beeswax candles also burn up to 30 times slower than paraffin candles and are drip-free and smokeless.
The discovery of petroleum in Burma in the 1850s transformed candle-making. The crude oil was processed to produce four products: benzene (a volatile liquid marketed as a leather and furniture cleaner), kerosene (an oil for lamps and stoves), paraffin (a solid wax for candle production) anda heavy lubricating oil.
In 1870 only 12% of candles were made from paraffin, but just 30 years later that figure had climbed to 90%.
Harnessing the talent within from Cate Burton at 10:30am on 28 July
If you've ever ordered from us online, you would have received a copy of our educational information cards. Well they're about to run out so we're going to do an overhaul. In particular, this time I would like to do one which shows some of the imaginative ways of usingBee Lights. I often speak to customers who don't use them because they don't know what to burn them in… and that's a crying shame as I think they're one of the most beautiful things we make.
4 - 5 hour beeswax tealights (pack of 9) - aluminium cups
Finally a tealight candle that is good enough to eat!
Queen B's beeswax tealights burn without dripping or smoking and they are also completely natural.
Burn time: 4 - 5 hours each
Dimensions : 3.7cm (w) 1.6cm (h)
Cost per hour: 55 cents per hour (of Queen B, pure Australian beeswax, natural honey aroma-ed, ionising, ambience-creating candlelight)
NOTE: Tealight candles are designed to be burned in a single sitting (it's a complex relationship between the size of the wick and the size of the candle and the wick needing enough time to burn out to the edge of the cup - to consume all of the wax - before it burns down to the base of the cup). Please take this into account when choosing whether to buy 4-5 hour or 8-9 hour tealight candles.
