Queen B's designer range of beeswax candles are 100 percent natural and hand rolled in Australia. When burned they purify the surrounding air through ionization while emitting a very light honey aroma, the company said. The candles are smokeless, will not drip when burnt in a draught-free environment and are individually hand-painted in a range of stylish designs.

Waxing Lyrical

When oils ain't oils - soya wax and palm waxWhen oils ain't oils - soya wax and palm wax

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.

Launch of Dinosaur Designs Atelier range of Queen B candles from Cate Burton at 1:41pm on 21 October
A creative collaborationis in some ways like giving birth (although the pain is rather more cerebral!)… you have to findthe right partner, with similar values. It's best if you each bring different, although compatible, strengths to the relationship. There's a process of getting to know one another and, if it is a good partnership, the alchemy where 1+1=3. You get better at it with time. And then you decide to create something that is in and of your joint DNA, that hopefully you'll love (!!!). I guess that's where I'll leave the analogy because it the product world there is also the process of rejecting things you don't like along the way and trial and error and, well, that's just a conversation we don't need to have on a beeswax candle blog!

Which brings me to the point of this post which is the announcement of our new Dinosaur Designs Atelier range – a joint collaboration with Louise Olsen and Stephen Ormandy, the talented duo behindDinosaur Designs.
