  • Thank you to the Hive's many Mothers

    Queen B is a the ultimate team effort. I love what we do and am passionate about the candles, but what gives me just as much joy is the women that I've met and the camaraderie amongst our angels who come to pack, package, tidy, cajole, love and support. Happy Mother's Day [Readmore]

  • The Beauty of Light

    Even after 10 years of making beeswax candles, I still marvel at the beauty of their light... the size of the flame... their golden light... no drips (no breeze!).

    The rest of the photograph is a study of a few of my favourite things.  The lampshade in the background I made from leftover timber veneer strips found in the bargain bin at a hardware store.  The candleholders are from Spain.  The papier mache dog made by a talented friend.  The antique twine bobbins.  Photographs from my sister's wedding.


    Queen B beeswax candles are made with 100% pure Australian beeswax a pure cotton wick and copious amounts of hand made love. We stock beautiful and stylish candle holders, personalised candles, votive candles and pillar candles that nourish the human spirit and our environment.
