Instead of shopping for candles on Amazon or at Bath and Body Works, treat yourself to some beautiful candles from these small, women-owned businesses. They use only the best soy wax to guarantee a toxic-free and lovely experience. Keep in mind, these small businesses do produce small batches at a time, so be patient if the goodies you have your eyes on are sold out!
