Each candle is poured by young Chicago moms thanks to a paid job training program that gives them the skills and confidence to succeed in the workforce.
Fresh Bouquet: Complex and unabashedly feminine, Fresh Bouquet is an overflowing armful of freshly cut wildflowers, the warm breeze flowing gently through layers of petals. Violet, jasmine, and rose dance vibrantly with crisp green leaves and subtle amber to evoke the long, joyful days of summer.
Rose Vanilla: Like a warm bath after a bad day, Rose & Vanilla is soothing and deep. Mellow rose, sweet black currant, and sophisticated notes of amber and vanilla restore peace and tranquility and provide a sensory reminder to breathe deeply and stay present.
Lavender Sprig: Calming in its familiarity yet delightful in its complexity, Lavender Sprig is a lilting melody dancing over a fragrant meadow. Herbal lavender flowers interlace with unexpected accents of fresh-cut grass, recalling a post-picnic nap on a well-worn blanket.
Lemon Tea: Cozy like a rainy Saturday and calming as an evening stroll, Lemon Tea is warm comfort for a tired soul. Crisp lemon is softened by subtle notes of hibiscus and rose hips, uplifting the weary with a fragrant reminder to practice gentleness and embrace that which is slow.
Sugared Grapefruit: A spark of unbridled joy, a spirited call to celebrate life’s most special moments: Landing that dream job, honoring a milestone birthday, feeling the rush of excitement after an amazing first date. Sweet citrus and tropical fruit flood the senses with a reminder to seek beauty and revel in it.
With each candle we include a "light the way" matchbox, the perfect addition to such a meaningful candle. Once finished, the beautiful white geometric metal bowl can be repurposed as cute trinket holder or a small flower or succulent vase.
