Queen B

Most candles these days are made from paraffin (a petrochemical and a non-renewable and polluting resource). Queen B are free from petroleum products and chemicals, so all you breathe in is pure, natural vapour.

Meet the Maker of Queen B



Cate was always driven by the desire to make a difference to people's lives, what wasn't quite clear to her for many years was just how she was going to do it.  Cate's journey to creating Queen B took her down many varied paths from law to banking, then marketing strategy.  None of these made her a good candle maker but all them created a need for a creative and relaxing hobby.

http://www.queenb.com.au/images/cate.jpgQueen B began several years ago Cate began to have sever anxiety attacks, she discovered a few calming hobbies from ceramics to carpentry, but two hobbies she grew to love were rolling and burning beeswax candles, painting canvases.  Queen B allowed her to merge these two passions.  Queen B grew organically, before selling candles Cate mainly gave them away to friends.  Soon those friends began calling, and friends of friends who had seen her candles at someone's house.  So Cate's hobby, her passion, became a business.

Cate says that her aim is "to rid the planet of paraffin candles that pollute people's lounge rooms and the environment (I am anticipating some backlash from the petroleum refining companies whose wares adorn many a home). Just think how much enjoyment you will get helping to support the cause."

Queen B strives to create beautiful and stylish natural beeswax candles that nourish the human spirit and nurture our environment.  Queen B, always takes delight in the fact that their candles are a part of so many special occasions - be it a romantic evening, spending time with friends, lying in a warm luxurious bath, or simply just being.

Queen B only uses 100% pure Australian beeswax in their candles – because it is Australian and of the highest quality in the world. Unfortunately, over 98% of candles sold in the market are made from paraffin – a petro-chemical by-product.  Burning beeswax candles is better for your environment - your immediate environment in the room where you burn your candles, and also the environment in general. While a paraffin candle emits toxic smoke when burning (similar to the smoke coming out of a car exhaust), a beeswax candle will purify the air you breathe through ionisation.
