Welcome to the Hive
Welcome to Queen B and our world of pure Australian beeswax candles... hand-made with care for you and your environment.
Queen B candles are individually made from 100% pure Australian beeswax and pure cotton wick. They are free from paraffin, soy, palm, fragrances and scents. Read more about why on the pages under the Why Beeswax menu in the top banner.
Treat yourself, your environment and the people you love with the natural honey aroma and pure golden light of pure Australian beeswax candles from Queen B.
Thank you so very much for sending the beeswax sheets and wick so quickly. We made the candles on Friday last week - the class had a ball. I was working in a jewish orthodox school so candles have a special place in the children's lives. I have forwarded your business details to other teachers at the school so they can have the same fun we did.

As people around the world switch off their lights for Earth Hour, they often light candles. But those candles might not be as environmentally friendly an option as you might think, as most o the world's candles are made with either paraffin, soy or palm oil. Paraffin is made from petroleum, and soy oil undergoes a hydrogenation process that creates toxins that are burnt with the candle, while palm oil comes from plantations in South-East Asia that have taken land that used to be rainforests.
Beeswax as a raw material costs around 50 times the price of paraffin at a wholesale level... then again one is an aromatic, naturopathic, non-toxic wax and the other is a by-product of petroleum refining.

Dinosaur Designs - Boulders - Small
What do you get when you cross a dinosaur with a bee?... something truly extraordinary!
Dimensions: approx 10cm (H) x 9cm (W)
Burn Time: approx 50 hours
Economics: 61 cents per hour of natural honey aroma-ed, air ionising, ambient, small Australian manufacturer and beekeeper supporting candlelight... hand-rolled right here in Australia.
Note: this candle is designed for longer burning (ie generally over 3 hours). If you continually burn the candle for shorter periods, the candle will not burn all the way out to its wrap. Luckily it's a natural ioniser, so you can leaving it burning and it will be purifying the air you breathe whilst you enjoy it's natural honey aroma!
