I was tossing up between that title (which started the song playing in my mind!) and “I’m getting started with beeswax candles, but I don’t know which ones would be best for me” or “I love burning beeswax candles and love a discount”!

We’ve recently created new “Beeswax Bounty Boxes” to add to our range, packed with some of our best sellers.  If you want to venture beyond Queen B beeswax tealight candles, but you’re not quite sure where to start, these are a great place to start.  And because we can pre-pack them in quiet times and do 50 at a time, you’re buying at a discount to the RRP and they all come with free shipping within Australia.

I can’t even begin to describe the process we went through trying to work out what to include and what to leave out.  I feel as if I’m setting up many of the candles for years of therapy!  Rest assured that if something doesn’t look incredible and burn beautifully it isn’t part of the Queen B range.  You may well be able to find cheaper beeswax candles, but there’s a money back guarantee from me that the look and burn quality will not be up to a Queen B standard.

I think the best way of honouring the extraordinary gift from bees that is beeswax, is to strive to be as precise, as fastidious and (almost) as hard working … with the added benefits of human creativity and consciousness in the candles we make.  It’s one of the major reasons we continue to hand make every Queen B candle.  The work of an artisan is always superior to something churned out of a machine.

Looking forward to lighting up your days and nights.

Hopefully we make perfection in a beeswax candle look effortless at Queen B… the reality, however, is that whilst we may look beautiful and graceful above water, below the surface we’re going like the clappers.  The training process at Queen B is long and rigorous and there are a LOT of candles rejected along the way.  One’s that won’t burn properly get melted down again, but there are many with slight blemishes that will burn perfectly and wear their ‘scars’ with pride!  They go in to ‘Seconds World’ – first place that most visitors to the hive go.  For the next 48 hours (or until we sell out) we thought we’d open it up to our loyal fans that can’t make it to the hive.

A brief glimpse into the delights awaiting homes in Seconds World

There are many things that are ‘one off’s’ (or ten off’s as the case may be) and others that we can safely open to the masses without creating disappointment.  For the next 48 hours (finishing at 11.59pm on Tuesday 8th October 2013 – unless we run out prior) we’re making the following Seconds World bargains available:

1. 4 x Seconds Squat Pillars – 20% off and usually just because the Queen B wax seal logo wasn’t quite perfect when applied… each candle has an approximate 40 hour burn time (designed for longer burning – 3+ hours at a time)

2. 3 x 15cm Narrow Pillar – Honeycomb – 20% off… these one’s may lean a little or have a top which isn’t perfectly flat (and I am a bit of a perfectionist, so often the flaw may not even be visible to you).  Approximate 50 hour burn time each.

3. 2 x 15cm “Chubby” Beeswax Pillar Candles – 20% off… usually just because the Queen B wax seal logo wasn’t quite perfect when applied… each candle has an approximate 100 hour burn time (designed for longer burning – 3+ hours at a time)

4. 4 x Burning Love candles – 25% off… these are surprisingly tricky to make and are for the realists… for those with slightly flawed relationships… with scars and blemishes… with slight cracks, a slight hole in the head or a marginally bruised arm (we’ve discounted them accordingly… and funnily, they’re a favourite amongst customers who visit the hive)!

6. 3 x 10cm Medium Hand-rolled Honeycomb Beeswax Pillar Candle – 20% off… these one’s may lean a little or have a top which isn’t perfectly flat (and I am a bit of a perfectionist, so often the flaw may not even be visible to you).  Approximate 50 hour burn time each.
