I bought a Queen B beeswax candle from one of my favourite stores Biome last year and totally adored it - a sweet square votive in a delicate porcelain cup, and packaged in a lovely recycled cardboard box. It was simple and perfect.
I've since found that Queen B has a range of great candles, all created with pure cotton wicks and 100% Australian beeswax, which means no parafin, no soy, and no palm wax.
I love the idea of supporting our regional beekeeping industry, and Queen B's dedication to minimal impact on the environment. Find out more about why Queen B uses Australian beeswax here.
Queen B candles are individually handmade in Sydney, where you can watch the artisans hand-roll, hand-pour and hand-finish each candle, try 16 different types of honey and check out the other beeswax and honey skincare products on offer.
You can find Queen B beeswax candles in the online store and at stockists like Biome (check the website for details).
