The perfect gift!

I LOVE the burmese candle in gratitude - I have literally bought dozens of these candles through the years and given them as hostess gifts as well as holiday gifts for colleagues, friends, and teachers of my kids. These candles are beautiful and share a lovely story of empowerment and purpose. Plus, an added bonus is that they are already elegantly packaged - I usually just add ribbon and a personalized note before gifting. I first learned about these candles when I received one as a gift, and I've been hooked ever since. With so much to be grateful for, why not share light and gratitude as often as I can?

What a lovely message! Thank you for taking the time to let us know how much you love these. We are so glad that you have found your go-to gift!

I love all prosperity candles. I'm sensitive to strong scents but Prosperity candles have wonderful subtle scents and I love them all. These are the only candles I burn. And I love their mission!
