Dirt Candles

Dirt Candles

We discovered these Dirt Candles on the Monarch's Heaven website today. Judging from their online popularity and widespread Chicago presence, we're probably a bit behind on this all-natural product made from organically grown soybeans, essential oils, and recycled paper and glass.

Dirt Candles come in various scents and amusing names such as Catch 22, Old School, Love Machine, and Bah Humbug. Most importantly, a portion of the profits from each candle go to various charitable organizations.
