Pure beeswax tealight candles in a reusable, jam jar candleholder created for long term collaborator, Joost Bakker.

Dimensions
H: ~3.4cm
W: ~4.0cm

Burn time: 4 - 5 hours each

These candles must be used in the specific size of jam jar sold in the Jam Jar tealight pack. No bigger. No smaller.

Due to the width of this candle, it needs to be burned for a minimum of 2 hours each time it’s lit.

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.

As beeswax is extremely forgiving, if you blow them out sooner on occasion the candle should be able to play catch up.

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.

Safety Tips

  1. We recommend always burning a candle on a fire safe and heat proof surface. Ceramic, tile, mirror plate, glass, marble… should all be heat proof (unless they have a special finish on them in which case check first). Never burn a candle directly on to a timber surface.
  2. Think about where your candle flame is going to be when you light the candle and ensure there is nothing that can come into contact with the flame (loose paper, curtains or anything else flammable).
  3. Think about candle safety when you’re setting a dinner table… leave enough room between the candles to allow your guests to pass dishes and drinks without burning themselves or knocking the candles over.
  4. Every child is different, so it is up to you whether it is appropriate to teach your child about fire or not and at what age. If you’re worried about fire safety around kids, think about putting the candles in a holder with a wide flat base (like a vase or fishbowl) and either keeping them out of reach, or, better still, educating the kids not to touch them while they’re burning.

Benefits of Beeswax Candles

Every Queen B candle is made with 100% pure Australian beeswax plus a pure cotton wick. Nothing else. No fillers. No fragrances. No soy, palm or paraffin wax… just the purest beeswax in the world. There are many benefits of this approach:

  1. our candles all burn with an golden aura-ed flame that is larger than their toxic cousins (because of the high melting point of the wax we can use a larger wick) throwing more light;
  2. they burn significantly longer than any non-beeswax candles of a similar size;
  3. they purify the air via ionisation and have significant health benefits especially for those of us suffering from respiratory problems like asthma;
  4. using them is good for your health, good for Australian beekeepers, good for the regional communities they live in, good for farmers who rely on bees for pollination, good for national parks and state forests, good for the environment, good for artisan skills, good for Australian jobs and because of all of that, good for you!!
