These candles are earth-friendly and lovely, too! Alluring, fragrant and residue-free, they are perfect for your home or as a meaningful gift - both to the recipient and those who made it. Each Thistle Farms candle is from the community of Magdalene made with soybean based eco wax and the finest ingredients of the earth. Totally vegan! Thistle Farms is the social enterprise that is run by the women of Magdalene. By hand, the women create natural bath and body products that are as good for the earth as they are for the body. Purchases of Thistle Farms products directly benefit the women by whom they were made.
