About Prosperity Candle

There's a story behind every candle we pour.

In 2009 three like-minded people got together. Each of us had been working in different places in the world to help lift families out of poverty, and wanted to do something more. What inspired us most was the idea of creating opportunities for women artisans to thrive.

So was born Prosperity Candle, a social enterprise that supports refugees and artisans through candle-making and beautifully crafted vessels easily refilled or repurposed for a lifetime of enjoyment.

Every candle is handpoured by a woman artisan building a brighter future for herself and her family using the highest quality waxes, natural cotton and wood wicks, and premium fragrances made with essential oils. We never add any dyes or enhancers.

Today we are 6-8 people at a time working side-by-side in a sunlit studio on the 3rd floor of a century-old mill building in western Massachusetts, not far from the Berkshires. We come from different walks of life, yet share a common vision – a world without poverty.

We also share the belief that equal opportunity for women and girls everywhere creates a brighter future for all.

Our Values

We celebrate creativity and quality, support fair trade and ethically made goods, and are convinced that every product can help make the world a better place. We don’t like unhealthy stuff in our homes. We love things that are sustainably made and can be reused or repurposed.

Most importantly, we believe in contributing to the common good, in the power of optimism, and in shared prosperity where everyone everywhere has the opportunity to thrive.

As a social enterprise, Prosperity Candle’s charter prioritizes public benefit above all else. That means everything we do puts our mission and values first, no matter what. We are a fair trade organization and B-Corp certified for community and environmental sustainability. For 2 years in a row, we've been recognized by B-Lab as a Best for the World small enterprise.

Candle Lovers

As you might guess, we also love candles. And spending evenings in the warmth of family, friends and candlelight with a nice glass of red wine. If you find yourself near Easthampton, stop by the studio to say hello – we’d love to meet you!

Don’t be surprised if our dog Riley does, too.
