Have spa time at home! With some candles and bath essentials, you can both relax well and be assured that you are helping break the cycle of multi-generational chronic poverty

Whoever’s nose is finessing these scents has impeccable instincts. Each scent is sweep-you-off-your-feet amazing. The packaging gets my gift-giving juices going, and I love that their wax blend keeps the air in my house pure, too.
