Riverstone Retreat

  • Set a bath to create a peaceful retreat at the end of the day. We paired a Riverstone Tealight candle made with pure Haitian beeswax and hand-carved from nature with a soothing milk and honey bath tablet. Light yours or give as a gift to someone you love for a relaxing treat.

    Each candle in this bath set is handpoured by the women of Fanm Limye, the candle enterprise in Haiti supported by our sister nonprofit, Prosperity Catalyst. Every purchase helps families in Petit-Goâve and around Port-au-Prince rebuild, and creates opportunities for Haitian women to thrive.

  • Sparkling Bath Tablet
    These delicious-smelling small-batch tablets from Formulary 55 are made from ground sea salt and soothing essential oils. When placed in warm water, the tablet fizzes for pure aromatherapy bliss.

    This self-striking strip on the bottle that says "Spark" makes it easy to light the beautiful candle of your choice.

    Riverstone Tealight
    Made with unscented pure Haitian beeswax, artisans collect and carefully carve a space for a tealight holder into river stones from Leogane, Haiti. On the bottom of each is a small heart indicating their love for Haiti. Place the Riverstone Tealight by the bath side to create a wonderfully peaceful ambiance.

  • Vessel: riverstone 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. Each river stone ranges from 2" W x 1" H to over 3" W x 2" H. We've done our best to divide them into light and dark colors, but nature is delightfully varied!

    Scent:  unscented with the mild, natural honey scent of pure beeswax

    Burn time:  each tealight burns up to 3 hours and is designed to accommodate any tealight

    Wax & Wick:  100% pure Haitian beeswax with a cotton wick, never any dyes or enhancers

    Gift Box:  arrives gift boxed with a story card 

  • Handmade - Since 2012, our sister nonprofit Prosperity Catalyst has been supporting women artisans in Haiti. Each Riverstone Tealight is individually poured by the women of Fanm Limye, the candle enterprise supported by our sister nonprofit, Prosperity Catalyst. 

    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.

    Sustainable - We are always thinking about how our designs can be reused and repurposed. Prosperity Candle has been recognized 2 years in a row for its commitment to social and environmental sustainability by B-Lab's Best for the World list.

    Ethically Made - We are passionate advocates for ethically made goods and support the fair trade principles of gender equity, respect for the environment, and living wages in our studio.

    Designed for Good - As a social enterprise prioritizing positive impact over all else, our candles help create opportunities for women refugees and artisans. We believe that equal opportunity for women and girls everywhere means a brighter future for all.
