They say a mother shouldn’t have favourites but as the youngest of 3 in my family, I know I was my mum’s favourite (:-)) and I’m continuing that tradition by holding a special place for the simplest member of the Queen B family of beeswax candles… our Bee Light candles. Having burned literally hundreds of other beeswax candles from all over the world, I genuinely think they are the finest beeswax candles in the world.
If you’ve burned them, please leave a comment below and let me (and other potential customers) know what your experience is… it’s one thing for me to say they’re wonderful, but it holds far more weight coming from you.
Any craftsperson will tell you that it is the things that are the most pared back that are the most complex to make, and this is the story with our Bee Lights. Wick testing for these candles took about 3 months. It was worth every drama. Every spill. Every heartbreak. Every hope dashing. Worth every single second for the result that we got.
Stylist, Meagan O’Donoghue from The Style Palette Co recently sent me some beautiful photograph from an event she styled for AEG at Mark Best’s house. Whilst the table setting was stunning and the food looked amazing, like most mum’s I only had eyes for my kids and boy did they perform! With a 3 – 4 hour burn time, they burned with an enormous golden flame and without dripping for the entire event. You wonder why a wedding or event stylist would ever use other candles.
The candleholders are our Mini Marilyn candleholders made here in Sydney.
