Marilyn was the second holder to join our range of solid brass, Australian made candleholders... the curvaceous, feminine antidote to the Earthing Stubb. The holder is reversible and designed to hold our Bee Light candles in one end and our Dinner Candles in the other.
Presented in our stunning Black Label packaging, the box contains 1 x Reversible Marilyn candleholder and 1 x 12cm Dinner candle so that you can fire it up immediately and enjoy the luxury of bee created light.
These candle holders are for use with our Black Label Bee Lights and our Black Label Dinner Candles.
Due to the narrow width of these candles they have no minimum burn time. You can burn them for as long or as short a period as you would like.
All candles, pure beeswax or toxic, need to be burned until the pool of wax reaches the outside edge! It’s an immutable law of physics. This is a requirement every (ish) time you light your candle.
There is no need with a beeswax candle to put it out once it reaches the outside edge, it should just continue to burn beautifully, without dripping, emitting a light honey aroma and a gorgeous warm ambience.
If you’re looking for candles for yoga, meditation, a relaxing bath, kids dinner, bedtime story or any activity that goes for less than a couple of hours, these are the candles for you.
ANY taper will drip in a breeze – be it beeswax, paraffin or even the chemically hardened petrochemical ‘non-drip’ taper candles. Having said that a beeswax candle is the least likely to drip due to its high melting point.
If you want to make sure your Dinner Taper or Bee Light candles don’t drip, keep them out of any breeze or air movement. If the flame is dancing, then the air around the wick is moving and the candles will drip. Sometimes all you may need to do is move your candle 10cm to the left or right and that will fix the problem
If your table is in the centre of a breezy room, you may just need to think of candles like plants… some plants like full sun and some like shade. If you don’t want to waste your money, then observe this! Likewise, some candles cope with a breeze (Tealights, Round Votives, Solid Pillars) and others don’t (Yapers & Bee Lights), so choose the right candle/s for the right location.
You would be hard pressed to find any metal candleholders made commercially in Australia these days…. Let alone candleholders of our quality made from solid brass or copper.
We are focused at Queen B of making a difference in everything we do and supporting other Australian crafts people practice their ancient skills of metal bending and mental turning is something that we are incredibly proud to do. We celebrate their skills.
