Who doesn't love candles?!

But did you know that most candles contain paraffin wax which comes from oil, animal wax or beeswax and all of these options are unfortunately not very sustainable. However, do not panic. There are many options to find candles that are less hazardous for both the environment and for us.

Heaven Scent 
(google it and you'll find loads of places who sell it)
This company only uses organic products harvested in a sustainable manner. Their raw materials are retracable to local plantations and the company is part of the UN Global Compact (no comments on the efficiency of that organisation) and the roundtable on sustainable palm oil. 

A green gift, good for both mind, soul and the earth.
