CANDLEMAKERSAll of our candles are hand poured in our Encinitas home studio!
We scent our coconut wax with pure essential oils, choosing botanical blends over a synthetic fragrance line. 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, therapeutic grade and grown without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers.
By striving for the lowest environmental impact possible we ended up developing a kinder candle. We were encouraged 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 mission by choosing wholesome solutions across our entire production and distribution process. We utilize recycled glass containers that can be Reused, Refilled or Recycled. We minimize our packaging needs with reusable muslin bags and recycled hemp paper tags. Our iconic wax seals are made from natural biodegradable plant resins.
We promise to always maintain a wholesome business by only creating products that are good for you and the planet.
