These charming candles are made from the pods of the Brazil Nut tree, one of the tallest trees in the Amazon Rain forest. Once the Brazil nuts have been harvested from the pod and sold in the local Peruvian market, the artisans transform a "waste" item, the pod, into a fine rain forest gift for you. The pods are filled with a combination of clean-burning paraffin wax, palm oil and fragrance to make these healing candles.
The sale of this product is Fair Trade certified. By helping artisans to gain the necessary knowledge and skills to develop their own businesses and offering access to a global market, communities in third world countries around the globe have worked their way out of poverty.
