We scent our coconut wax with pure theraputic-grade essential oils, choosing botanical blends over a synthetic fragrance line. An oil is “essential” in the sense that it carries a distinctive scent, or essence, of the plant from which it came. We learned however, that not all oils are grown, harvested and sold equally. We made the decision to only invest in distributors that provide a fair trade to farmers and distillers. All of our oils are ethically produced and sourced from wildcrafted and organic plants.
By striving for the lowest environmental impact possible we ended up developing a sustainable candle line. Word got out to our friends and family who encouraged us to start a candle company and soon we had a small demand. So we set out to turn our craft project into a side business and Earthlite was born.
Producing candles on a bigger scale does change things but we remain committed to our original purpose by choosing sustainable solutions across our entire production and distribution process. We reutilize already produced resources by pouring our candles into recycled glass containers that can be Refilled or returned back to us for a Reuse, Reduce Discount on your next purchase. We minimize our packaging needs by hand stamping reusable muslin bags. Our tags are stamped on 100% recycled hemp paper using wax seals that are made from natural biodegradable plant resins.
We promise to always maintain a wholesome business by only producing products that are ethical and sustainable.
