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 just wanted to thank you for our gorgeous candles which I collected today from the Post Office. They are beautiful and I love the packaging too.

Candles are one of life's little pleasures. Queen B creates hand-poured and handrolled beauties that are individually painted. Owner Cate Burton uses beeswax (instead of the usual paraffin) because it is a natural air purifier that doesn't drip or smoke and has a light honey scent. (The shop also sells "make your own" kits for your inner crafter.
Both soy and palm are oils when harvested – soyabean oil and palm oil respectively. To turn them into a wax they are bleached (creating billions of tonnes of dioxins) and then hydrogenated. I may be unusual, but to me something is ‘natural’ when it is used in the form it is harvested, not when it is so altered by chemical processes that it doesn’t bear any resemblance to the harvested product.
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?
This iconic lightbulb candle is almost too beautiful to light... apart from the fact that the real beauty of it can only be appreciated by lighting it!
Made with 100% pure beeswax and is Australian made.
Great for gifts, corporate gifts or just because you want to play a part in an eco friendly world.
This unique design will shine a light in anyones life!
