Today on the blog we’re talking about the ultimate gift, and self-care item:

THE CANDLE!

And more importantly, candle brands that are SO top-notch with their sustainable business models. Really, it's not just the candles they produce that are so great..

It's also that they're such go-getters in how they've built and are growing their companies (socially, ethically, environmentally).

With that, let’s take a closer look at these brands and how they provide solutions to real world problems. We look at the materials they use, and their social and sustainable practices.
