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.
I love your company, your attitude and of course your product, they are beautiful but I also buy them because of what they stand for and the thought and effort and responsibility behind them.
Good Weekend May 2005
Queen B Candles The majority of candles sold in Australia are made from paraffin, a material drawn from petroleum through distillation. Queen B produces handpainted, hand-rolled candles formed only from pure Australian beeswax, a non-toxic alternative that keeps bees, and beekeepers, busy and the air decidedly cleaner.
The vast majority of candles are scented with fragrant oils. Fragrant oils (also known as aroma oils, aromatic oils and flavour oils) are blended synthetic aroma compounds that are then diluted with a carrier such as propylene glycol, vegetable oil or mineral oil*. Mineral oil is, of course, another petrochemical. These are fragrances created in a laboratory – there is little that is ‘natural’ about them. Candle-makers prefer to use fragrant oils because they are considerably cheaper than essential oils and they are also typically less volatile.
And you call that a job?! from Cate Burton at 4:40pm on 5 August
Do you call it a job when you work with people you genuinely like and other people that you genuinely like call you up, pop in or send you emails wanting some of what you've created with your bare hands?
