Letters from Lovers
Wedding GiftMy family are regular uses of Queen B candles. We absolutely love them. I make it a habit to support Queen B and Australian beekeepers by buying these pure bees wax candles for any gifts I have to purchase. People just love them. Here is a display I made for my sister's wedding. It was used during a speech made about 'Earth, Fire, Air, and Water' and it made a beautiful sentimental gift to give afterwards. Thanks so much Cate and the staff at Queen B. It is always a pleasure to drop when I'm in Brookvale to see you all and look at all the beautiful new things going on in your shop.

Forget Warringah Mall people, go to Queen B in Brookvale, find a park with ease and find a candle that will change your life or someone else’s – no kidding - or order copious amounts online, just don't miss theseYou can always tell when something is made with love and it’s so evident in the incredible beeswax candles made by Queen B. I agree with the person who wrote they are perfect for sensitive souls but I would say they are perfect for all souls. Candles, I have recently realised, in the hectic pace of life, have been something missing in my life and my home. But hand-made, beeswax candles are a whole other level. Just lighting a beautiful beeswax candle of an evening is pure soul therapy. Working on the computer last night with my bee light was somehow easier because the candle was my company. It's the beeswax that makes them all rustic and gorgeous but my faves? – mmmmmm, the bee lights are fine and elegant, the majestic tosca commands attention and respect and the moonlights are beyond stunning – you won’t find anything like them anywhere. A set of two of those babies are the perfect gift for anyone. Rock on Queen B, drop the mic, your candles are the bomb!

Thank You CateI counted down the days until my delivery arrived. I selected a hamper as a thank you gift to a close friend & I wanted to share the beauty of QueenB with my friends & family for Christmas along with some treats for my colleagues. I have to say, I have never been so excited about such a gorgeous product. The excitement never changes with new additions making it hard to resist. Thank you for making something unique & special.

Tealight review'There's nothing cheap about these tealights. They ooze quality and are a beautiful gift I give myself and those I love. I'll let you in on a secret . . . Each time I take a tealight out of the box, I gently press it to my nose and deeply breathe in its nourishing scent. Investing in these exquisite tealights is one way I honour myself and the Goddess. They are a special part of my morning prayers and ritual practices. Such a personal thing . . . Speaking of personal, the hand written note I receive with each order makes me feel like a truly valued customer. It's a unique touch and feels genuine - a very rare quality to find in retail. These tealights, and all Queen B candles, are made with love and it comes through both in the products themselves and the entire purchasing experience. Priceless.'

Beautiful candlesDear Cate The first time I knew anything about Queen B was when my husband had ridden his bike over to your shop in Brookvale to buy me the most exquisite large pillar candle with beautiful motifs all around it for my birthday. I've not bought anything but your beezwax since that date over 8 years ago. My staple is now four of your medium pillars to fit into a pottery candelabra my mother made for our wedding. They warm up the room in winter and add a touch of class at any gathering we might have at ours - day or night. Thank you for producing such an exquisite, local and ethical product. You definitely have my vote. Best wishes Kelly

Re; My love and only beeDear Queen B and Makers, It is with joy that I place my rather large household order for your beeswax candles, because frankly I would burn no other, and give no other. Knowing the pure authenticity of the range is enough, however supporting a passionate maker that I have known since the very start day of the Queen B business is my pleasure. Cate I am still enjoying my boxes of candles and love every day, knowing the fumes going into my home and business are pure bezz knees, and the glow still sooths me every time I light up. BTW my last order was so beautifully posted, I actually enjoyed the experience! From follow up emails to prompt delivery in a beautiful little square box of delight, I was very happy. I'm ordering more today! Ha! With love from a happy customer, Fenella.

Wonderful candelsI started using Queen Bee candles when I lived in Sydney. I'm back in Victoria now and they are to good to leave behind. So now they arrive by post. They are such beautiful candles, the bee's wax smells lovely. And they do the planet good. Why would you use any thing else.

It's so nice to burn them knowing they are doing some good instead of spreading toxins!Dear Cate, My name is Jxxx and I was shopping at your store last Saturday morning. This is just a short note to say thank you very much for your lovely products! I love everything I bought in this, my first beeswax candle experience, and will be back for more very soon. You were kind enough to say you would like to see a photo of my birdcage/glass candle holder creation - so I have attached one to this email. This photo was taken at night and on my iphone, so the quality is not great, but it shows the first attempt at attaching the glass holder to the cage and I think it looks lovely! I have emailed and text the photo to all my friends and told them all about your lovely candles. It's so nice to burn them knowing they are doing some good instead of spreading toxins! Many thanks, J

Letter from 'The Butterfly Bower'About 20 years ago I started learning about and experiencing the benefits of using pure beeswax candles as I had been diagnosed as being extremely sensitive to electromagnetic radiation and all chemicals. Using pure beeswax candles for all my lighting over a 5 year period helped me to overcome the worst of my sensitivities...
