In 2009 three like-minded people got together. Each had been working in different places in the world to help lift families out of poverty, but wanted to do something more. What inspired us most was the idea of creating opportunities for women artisans to thrive.
So was born Prosperity Candle, a social enterprise that supports refugees and artisans
through candle-making and beautifully crafted vessels easily refilled or repurposed for a
lifetime of enjoyment. As we like to say, there's a story behind every candle we pour.
UNIQUE CANDLES DESIGNED FOR GOOD
Every candle is handpoured by a woman artisan building a brighter future for herself and
her family using all-natural soy & coconut waxes, pure cotton and wood wicks, and premium
fragrances made with essential oils. We never add any dyes or enhancers.
WHO MADE YOUR CANDLE?
Candle-making is part art, part science. And for us, it’s also about creating opportunity.
Behind every candle we pour is a story about a brighter future. Whether your candle-maker is a woman fleeing persecution, a war widow, or a mother escaping poverty, her strength and resilience has led her to Prosperity Candle. She is rebuilding her life one candle at a time.
Your candle includes the name of the woman who made it for you, either on the label or a story card.
