I was looking high and low for a local product to roll my own candles, and get the kids involved in making something. Queen B's candle kits hit the jackpot.

THE homes of students from Merewether's Holy Family Primary School will not be in complete darkness during Earth Hour next Saturday. Years 4 and 5 pupils spent Thursday morning busily making about 50 candles that will burn between 8 and 9pm. The 20 centimetre tall candles, which will double as a fund raiser for the school's regional environmental sustainability centre, are made from sheets of beeswax.
According to a report by Greenpeace*, “The Amazon
Rainforest is the largest expanse of tropical rainforest in the world, but it is disappearing at an alarming rate – since the 1970s, an area of rainforest the size of California has been lost. Few people today realize that the greatest threat facing the Amazon is the production of soy”.

Harnessing the talent within from Cate Burton at 10:30am on 28 July
If you've ever ordered from us online, you would have received a copy of our educational information cards. Well they're about to run out so we're going to do an overhaul. In particular, this time I would like to do one which shows some of the imaginative ways of usingBee Lights. I often speak to customers who don't use them because they don't know what to burn them in… and that's a crying shame as I think they're one of the most beautiful things we make.
