Queen B by Joost pure beeswax Jam Jar tealights

Creative, sustainability wunderkind Joost is at it again, most recently with a pop up Greenhouse by Joost for Melbourne Food and Wine Festival.

It was a collaboration with Joost several years ago which saw the development of our iconic Eco-Bulb candle.  Now, after several months in development, we are excited to lift the lid on Queen B by Joost jam jar tealights.

Excitingly for Queen B having worked on wick testing for several months the candles are now in use lighting the pop-up Greenhouse by Joost in Melbourne CBD and the so-grounded-it-practically-still-grows-on-the-plate food of Greenhouse chef, Matt Stone.

It's one thing to make the candles, but another entirely to see them working their magic (which is why I LOVE getting photographs)!

Here's one from my camera of the trays of tealight refills for Joost Jam Jar candles...

But here's where it gets really good... you know how I'm always saying that Queen B candles only really come to life when lit? (if you don't, well I do, usually to people who are telling me that they are too beautiful to light!).

So, check this out

OK, so that's pretty but a little like a still life, so here it gets even better (got to love the guy drinking wine from his jam jar!)...

"But it's still daylight outside!" I hear you cry!  Well, get this for ambience...

We've also done a bespoke pillar for the reception area.  Stark reminder of beeswax candles requiring lighting here...
