Grazia - Jan 2009 Jan 2009
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.
The vast majority of candles are scented with fragrant oils. Fragrant oils (also known as aroma oils, aromatic oils and flavour oils) are blended synthetic aroma compounds that are then diluted with a carrier such as propylene glycol, vegetable oil or mineral oil*. Mineral oil is, of course, another petrochemical. These are fragrances created in a laboratory – there is little that is ‘natural’ about them. Candle-makers prefer to use fragrant oils because they are considerably cheaper than essential oils and they are also typically less volatile.
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?
