"now I only use your candles" from G James
I first found your website a few years ago, when I was looking for natural candles. The page titled "Why we don't use paraffin" was an eye opener for me, so now I only use your candles. I have them in our accommodation cottage and meditation room on the property. I am very happy with the brass winkies!

Candles and Christmas are synonymous, and as a result North Head's popular Queen B candle workshop has moved to Brookvale and increased its product range just in time for the festive season. A unique, small business concept, conceived by former lawyer, banking and business strategist Cate Burton, Queen B - also known as "the Hive" - produces handpainted beeswax pillar candles, tea lights, votive candles and honeycomb taper candles, along with fun candle- making kits for the kids.
As said by the Sydney Morning Herald, “Clearing peat forests has made Indonesia the world’s third-largest greenhouse gas emitter, sending more than 3000-million tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere a year. It is driven by greed, with palm oil and timber barons lining the pockets of officials from Kalimantan to Jakarta”.*

However, we're redoing our website at the moment and I'm doing my head in a little over this one. We either need to double Queen B sales in the next 12 months (low margin x twice the sales = covering costs) or put our prices up. So, I thought I'd turn the question over to you guys.
