The Queen B Sweetness & Light Gift Set contains 2 x Jam Jar Tealight Candles along with a jar of Australian honey... a perfect hostess gift, staff gift or just a little thank you gift. It's the gift of sweetness & light!
Each tealight contains around 6,000 scales of wax made by bees... the work of around 1,000 bees in each tea light.
If you are looking for a completely natural tea light candle that burns clean and long, this is the one for you.
Queen B's 100% pure beeswax tealights burn without smoking.
Directions: Due to the width of this candle, it needs to be burned for a minimum of 2 hours each time it’s lit. All candles, pure beeswax or toxic, need to be burned until the pool of wax reaches the outside edge! It’s an immutable law of physics. This is a requirement every(ish) time you light your candle.
As beeswax is extremely forgiving, if you blow them out sooner on occasion the candle should be able to play catch up.
There is no need with a beeswax candle to put it out once it reaches the outside edge, it should just continue to burn beautifully, without dripping, emitting a light honey aroma and a gorgeous warm ambience.
Sustainability: To reuse the glass jars, pop them in the freezer overnight and then simply flick out the metal sustainer and pop in a new tealight.
Care: To clean the jars, pop them on baking paper on a baking tray in a 100 degree oven and let the wax (and sustainer) melt out. Or pour boiling water into it and then quickly tip it upside down so the metal sustainer falls out (being VERY careful not to burn yourself).
