The Story So Far

Pillars in Baghdad
Prosperity Candle began with an ambitious pilot project in Baghdad, where we partnered with Women for Women International to train women survivors of war to pour perfect pillar candles right in their own kitchens.
Made in the U.S.A.
After our pilot, we returned to the United States to create something new: vessel candles poured by women refugees who were recently resettled in western Massachusetts.
Experiments in light
Moving from pillars to container candles opened up a world of possibility, and we began testing different vessels, from classics like travel tins to more distinctive designs, shapes, and materials.
A new home in an old mill
After two years in a small office space, we moved to a beautiful studio in Eastworks, a renovated mill building in Easthampton, just in time for the 2012 holiday season.
Something new, meant to last
When we started to envision our newest candles in the summer of 2014, a concept struck us: what if your candle could burn forever? We loved the idea of a lifetime of impact, and the Forever Candle was born.
