Note: A tealight candle MUST be burned in a tealight cup or the wax will run to the edge of the container you're burning it in. To use refill candles, first purchase a box of tealights with cups (clear or metal). When the candle has finished burning, you will be left with a little metal disc in the bottom - the wick sustainer. Simply pop the cup into the freezer overnight and then tap the cup upside down on a benchtop the next day allowing the metal disc (and any remaining wax) to fall out. Then pop your refill candle in.
DO NOT put a refill candle on top of the prior candle's metal wick sustainer.
Queen B 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. 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). 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. 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. We have had hundreds of customers over the years who have told us that they have taught their kids that when the candles are lit in the evening it is ‘quiet time’… dinner, bath & bed.
Benefits of burning 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: 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; they burn significantly longer than any non-beeswax candles of a similar size; they purify the air via ionisation and have significant health benefits especially for those of us suffering from respiratory problems like asthma; 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!!
