Scented candles totally set the mood with their soft glowy light and balmy fragrances, that's why it's a modern day lifestyle must-have for many of us.
But one candle that makes even more of a difference is Aveda's Light The Way Candle. Launched in limited quantities every year since 2007, the brand donates 100 percent of the candle's $35 retail price to Global Greengrants, a non-profit organisation that aims to solve international environmental issues.
While $35 may not seem like much to most of us, it amounts to six months worth of clean water for a family of six in India, according to Aveda. The brand has since raised over US$11 million through the sales of this candle in its social bid to bring clean water to the underprivileged.
The Light The Way Candle is housed in reclaimed glass bottles, and the candle is made with 100 percent certified organic essential oils and soy wax. It burns clean for over 27 hours and has a woody, spicy comforting aroma.
Available at $35, from 24 March 2016 at Aveda Experience Centres at Capitol Piazza, Ngee Ann City, and TANGS at Tang Plaza and Aveda Salons and Spas in Singapore.
