Riverstone Tealight

    Shaped first by nature, these hand-carved and polished tealight holders are the perfect addition to every room in your home. On the mantle, at the center of your table, bath side... the gentle light from 100% beeswax candles creates a wonderfully peaceful ambiance.

    The riverstones come from Leogane, just west of Haiti's capital and the epicenter of the 2010 earthquake. Leogane has a rich and artistic culture dating back centuries. Artisans collect the multi-colored stones and carefully carve a space for a tealight holder, as well as a small heart on the bottom indicating their love for Haiti.

    Each Riverstone Tealight arrives in a cotton drawstring bag with a story card and 4 unscented beeswax tealights handpoured by the women of Fanm Limye, the candle enterprise supported by our sister nonprofit, Prosperity Catalyst. A beautiful and meaningful gift for someone special - including yourself.

    Designed to accommodate any tealight. When the included candles burn down, simply replace them with any tealight purchased in your local stores.

    Sold individually, colors and sizes vary. We've done our best to divide them into light, medium and dark colors, but nature is delightfully varied!

    Haiti - Since 2012, our sister nonprofit Prosperity Catalyst has been supporting women artisans in Haiti. Together we have traveled all over the country to work with beekeepers, bottle recyclers, metal and stone artisans, and entrepreneurial women to create unique handmade candles. But our love of Haitian people began a decade earlier during trips to support artisans working in every medium, from papier-mâché in Jacmel to jewelry in Cité Soleil. Hurricane Matthew hit Haiti harder than anywhere else, including Petit-Goâve where many of our beekeepers live. Every purchase from the Haiti Collection helps families in Petit-Goâve and around Port-au-Prince rebuild, and creates opportunities for Haitian women to thrive. For more information, visit Prosperity Catalyst in Haiti.

    Handmade - All our candles are hand-poured by women artisans, most by women refugees creating new lives for themselves and their families in the United States. Many of our vessels are handcrafted by women artisans from around the world.

    Sustainable - Prosperity Candle is a certified B-Corp, recognized 2 years in a row for its commitment to social and environmental sustainability by B-Lab's Best for the World list.

    Fair Trade - We support ethically made goods, and believe every product represents the opportunity to help make the world a better place. We follow fair trade principles established by the World Fair Trade Federation.

    Designed for Good - Prosperity Candle is a social enterprise that prioritizes positive impact over all else, ensuring everything we do helps create opportunities for women to thrive. We believe that equal opportunity for women everywhere will help create a brighter future for all.
