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.
I adore your candles and this is obvious as I am making them the centrepiece of my tables for my wedding and not the flowers!... The reason why I fell in love with the amore ones, is because it is so romantic looking, i love the whole renaissance look.
Australian Giftguide Magazine Dec 2006
Queen B's designer range of beeswax candles are 100 percent natural and hand rolled in Australia. When burned they purify the surrounding air through ionization while emitting a very light honey aroma, the company said. The candles are smokeless, will not drip when burnt in a draught-free environment and are individually hand-painted in a range of stylish designs.
Both soy and palm are oils when harvested – soyabean oil and palm oil respectively. To turn them into a wax they are bleached (creating billions of tonnes of dioxins) and then hydrogenated. I may be unusual, but to me something is ‘natural’ when it is used in the form it is harvested, not when it is so altered by chemical processes that it doesn’t bear any resemblance to the harvested product.

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
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!
