In this section at Shop Like You Give a Damn, we have compiled a selection of brands and sellers who offer some of the most ethically made and socially responsible candles.
Candles can symbolise a romantic celebration, it can help soothe the senses and the mind, create a ceremony vibe, and beautify the style of home decors.
They can instantly change the atmosphere of any indoor or outdoor setting by adding light to space without the harshness of a shiny electric bulb.
A great example of sustainable raw materials for candle production can be seen in our seller’s Atelier Warm’s candles, which are cast by hand with soy wax grown without pesticides and essential oils; these candles have an organic cotton wick.
Soy wax is an eco-friendly alternative to the traditional paraffin-based candles as it is a natural, biodegradable and renewable source. Atelier Warm also uses more sustainable packaging materials like recycled paper and as little plastic as possible every step of the way.
For those who love the atmosphere that candles provide but would rather not surround themselves with an assortment of scents, Kaskia offers sustainably packaged unscented candles, made with 100% natural and pure essential oils.
In addition to scented and unscented candles, here you can also find candlesticks, tea lights, and candle holders: we have gathered everything you need to create this environmentally friendly and tranquilising experience in the comfort of your home.
Candles can also be a great gift to your loved ones, either to create a nice atmosphere or as a thoughtful gift for their upcoming celebration or romantic dinner. These can also be a great house-warming gift idea! In case your friends have just moved into their new place, a candle can help them to create a restful and calming environment, or to decorate their new room or bathroom. ✨
