"Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle. Happiness never decreases by being shared."

LAFCO takes pride in elevating the everyday into something naturally luxurious. While many candles are made entirely from paraffin, a petroleum by-product, LAFCO's wax blend is majority soy, which is naturally derived from vegetables and 100% biodegradable. Not all soy wax blends are created equally; some soy blends contain considerable amounts of paraffin. An easy way to tell is by touching and inspecting the wax – a higher soy-content candle (like LAFCO) is hard and opaque, while a low soy-content candle will be translucent and can feel soft and oily.
Something else you'll love about LAFCO (beside the scents, of course!)? They come in handblown glass vessels that are designed to be reused!
We carry a wide variety of LAFCO candles, including several of their Limited Edition holiday scents and difficult-to-find votive sizes! (You won't find these on LAFCO's website!)

Lucid Candles are a different kind of candle - The Washington Post expert Elizabeth Mayhew called them "the most impressive invention I have seen in a while", and we're inclined to agree with her!
CM Almy, the family-owned company behind Lucid, knows candles - they've been making them in Maine since 1896. A few years back, they had an idea: a candle that doesn't melt as it burns. A cleaner candle, one that never needs to be replaced, and is as beautiful as a traditional candle. And so, Lucid candles were created.
Lucid Candles are made from a polymer that looks and feels like a traditional candle, but doesn't melt. (You can even throw them in the dishwasher!) They're clean, safe, and longlasting - a bottle of Lucid Liquid lasts between 200-220 hours! The candle and the wick are permanent, so you won't find yourself having to replace anything else. Plus, Lucid Candles will fit in just about any candle holder you currently have.
