Essential (SMH) Mar 2008
As Earth Hour approaches we can all step up our eco-action plan. Start by switching off your electric appliances and computers at the end of each day and buying ecofriendly when you can. When you turn off the lights for one hour at 8pm this Saturday make sure you have some pure beeswax candles, such as Queen B, to use.
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.
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?
Personalised Quote - The journey of a thousand miles
On one side this personalised candle features the very famous Lao Tzu quote:
"The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step."

" Dear [tell us their name]
With love from [tell us who it is from]"
Your message can be up to 8 words included in the price. You can give us those details in the
