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.
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.
