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.
Since buying my first Queen B candle many years ago I have not bought any other candle.

Earth Hour Saturday, March 29, 8pm Natural lights For candlemaker Cate Burton, Earth Hour is a great chance to revive the romantic dinner party. Her candle company, Queen B, is one of few in Australia to make beeswax candles. Unlike the most commonly produced paraffin candles, the beeswax variety do not emit carbon when they burn.
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.

Dunny light candle holder - Copper
These gorgeous dunny lights are made right here in Australia at a wonderful foundry in Victoria... we found them on our travels, bought one for ourselves and fell so in love that we decided we had to share them!
