100% pure beeswax Burn drip free & smokeless in draft free environment Burn up to 10x slower than soy or paraffin candles Natural air ioniser Carbon neutral Hand made in Australia using only Australian beeswax ABOUT THIS CANDLE The Queen B Jam Jar Tealight candles are a collaboration with sustainable restaurant Joost. They're designed to sit on your dinner table or to use at parties. They come in mini glass jam jars and the refills are available to purchase. They burn for 4-5 hours each, perfect for any dinner party as table decoration or to use in oil burners. When your tealight has finished burning, simply flick out the metal sustainer and wash the jar in warm soapy water to remove any residual wax. Check out the comparison video below between Queen B tealights and other alternatives. The tealights are designed to be burned in one session. It will emit a gentle honey aroma and help ionise the air as it burns. Size - JAM JAR TEALIGHT CANDLES (each) - 2.7cm diameter x 2.7cm tall (candle) 4cm diameter x 3.4cm tall (jar) Burn Time - 4-5 hours each* Made from - 100% pure beeswax with cotton wick & presented in frosted glass jar. The jar is reusable and we sell replacement votive candles. Care & Use - Trim the wick to 5-7mm with scissors (or us a dedicated candle wick trimmer) prior to lighting and during the burn to get a longer burn time. Overly long wicks burn candles quicker. NEVER leave a lit candle unattended. Always burn on a fireproof and heat safe surface. * Burn time may vary depending on several factors (but not limited to) - whether the wick is trimmed, whether the candle is in a draft free area, whether the candle is being burnt in an appropriately sized hurricane bowl or lamp (lamps that are too small provide too much heat and the candle can burn quicker).
VIDEO ABOUT QUEEN B CANDLES The quality and integrity of Queen B candles is second to none, which is why it's the only brand we stock and the only brand we use ourselves (see below for our own personal review). Pure beeswax candles are the only pure and non-toxic candle to burn in the home.
Paraffin is a toxic petrochemical by-product that arrived at the candle factory with a safety sheet advising the use of goggles, mask and gloves. It's then dyed & fragranced (usually with synthetic fragrance) and when you burn it in your home, these synthetic fragrances and petrochemical remnants are in the air you're breathing. Workers in candle shops will tell you then only use food grade paraffin wax. It doesn't alter the fact it started out as petrol and has been artificially died and fragranced by someone who had to wear goggles, a mask and gloves to make it.
Soy & palm candles all start out as an oil and are then chemically bleached and hydrogenated with nickel to turn in to a wax. There's nothing 'natural' about a soy candle or a palm oil candle either.
Beeswax candles, on first appearance, are dearer than paraffin or soy, but they burn a lot slower, and are more economical and better for your health and the environment. The WWF have chosen
Queen B as their candle of choice when celebrating Earth Hour. The only ingredient in the wax for a Queen B Beeswax candle is beeswax!
Beeswax candles emit a natural, light honey aroma when burning. They are not artificially scented, but you can use the tealights in an oil burner and use
natural essential oils for any aroma you require. By choosing a beeswax candle, you're supporting Aussie beekeepers. Fun facts:- to produce 1 kilo of beeswax, female worker bees eat 10kg of honey, fly 530,000km by visiting 70 million flower blossoms. Bees are responsible for pollinating around 1/3 of the food we eat and our plants & trees in the forest.
"These candles were a pure lifesaver for me, which is how they ended up in our store. I unfortunately had a mouse or a rat die in the wall cavity of my bedroom. The smell lasted for almost 2 weeks and was incredibly unpleasant.
Unfortunately, it wasn't practical for me to sleep elsewhere, so I ventilated the room, but this wasn't enough. I ended up burning
Queen B Candles and also used their beeswax tealight candles in an oil burner along with lemon natural essential oils to mask the dreadful smell. It worked, brilliantly! I'm truly passionate about this brand and I won't burn any other candle in my home."
