Back in March I blogged about Joost’s Melbourne Greenhouse and our pure beeswax Jam Jar Tealights which lit the way – the second eco love child of our long term collaboration with Joost. We’ve been inundated with requests for them ever since, but it took until now for them to get to the top of the list of things for us to do.
So (drum roll) it is with great delight that we announce the launch of our Jam Jar tealights. The story of Joost’s life – bucket loads of great ideas focused on sustainability (+ an obsession with jam jars) and the need for people to execute. The story of my life – the love of execution (+ an obsession for beeswax candles that burn perfectly). It’s a match made in heaven.
Each pack contains 2 x Glass Jam Jars + 8 pure beeswax tealight candles (4-5 hour burn time).
To reuse the glass jars, simply flick out the metal wick sustainer when the tealight has finished burning and pop in a new tealight. To clean the jars use hot, soapy water.
Here’s how they look when they are lighting up the Greenhouse by Joost…

Everyone looks better looking by beeswax candle light?
Queen B Jam Jar tealights lighting up the Greenhouse by Joost at Melbourne Food and Wine – notice that apart from the legally required safety lighting, the entire dining area was lit purely by beeswax tealight candles. Go bees. Joost, the diners & the planet thanks you.
And here are trays of these beautiful little lights freshly poured from an enamel teapot at Queen B.
