We are excited to share with you the beautiful handmade candles of Queen B beeswax, new to our shelves! Made with 100% pure Australian beeswax, a pure cotton wick and copious amounts of hand made love. With Queen B candles you experience the longer burn times, natural honey aroma, beautiful golden light and superior burning experience of pure beeswax candles and you’ll understand why beeswax candles are said to be the best candles available.
Queen B uses 100% pure Australian beeswax in their candles – because it is Australian and of the highest quality in the world. Burning beeswax candles is better for your environment – your immediate environment in the room where you burn your candles, and also the planet’s environment. Unfortunately, over 98% of candles sold in the market are made from paraffin – a petrochemical by-product. While a paraffin candle emits toxic smoke when burning (similar to the smoke coming out of a car exhaust), a beeswax candle will purify the air you breathe through ionization.
Choose Queen B and support the environment, beekeepers and the talented artisans who create these beautiful candles.

Dollmaking has been a part of my life since my first child was born. That’s a while ago now as she is nearly 17. My little business “Special Friends Dolls” has been great for all those years of needing to be available for little children with a second’s notice, very versatile being mostly hand sewing and very mobile too.
There is nothing more satisfying than giving a doll that has been hand made. My children have played with their dolls for many years and even now as they grow up their little dolls still hold a dear place in their hearts and their bedrooms!
Steiner Dolls ( in Europe more commonly known as Waldorf Dolls) are made from sheep’s wool and cotton fabric. A unique inner head gives form but not too much detail to the face allowing the child to “be in” their moment . The origins of this style of doll come from a strong European tradition of doll making and has been developed over time by parents making dolls for their children. These simple toys, made from natural materials, are recognized as being of great importance for the wholesome development of young children. Nurturing is one of the human qualities that i thnk is one of the most important and for the child to be able to nurture their own little doll is a great gift.
I am very glad to be a Steiner Doll Maker!
Special Friends Dolls are available at Little Sparrow, The Friendship Tree and Rudolf Steiner.com
