These candles are made from the pods of the Brazil Nut tree, one of the tallest trees in the Amazon Rainforest. Once the Brazil nuts have been harvested from the pod and sold in the local Peruvian market, the artisans transform a "waste" item, the pod, into a fine rain forest gift for you. The pods are filled with a combination of clean-burning paraffin wax, palm oil and fragrance to make these healing candles. Available in a variety of colors and fragrances, these earth-friendly candles make use of the rainforest's renewable resources and create jobs for Peruvian artisans. Price is per candle. Colors may vary slightly.
