A little background of black & light: Holly - the candle artisan behind the designs of black & light, started her family business by sharing her design ideas with a candle maker she had met. A partnership was born. A spark ignites passion.... Working off an 'inspiration' that would not go away, Holly Eve pursued her dream. Her passion brought to life black & light® co. to "share the glow" on a national level.
The candles of black & light are simply spectacular. The designs are so fresh and artistic. The newest style to the collection are hand painted with gorgeous bright flowers adorning each candle in lovely spring colors. I adore the Dot and Curls selections. The dots are so much fun in a variety of colors to match your decor. Not only are all the candle designs wonderful to look at when placed in your home, what makes black & light candles especially lovely is when they are lit. The candles glow from top to bottom! Once lit, the glow literally bursts from every angle of the candle, and even out through the bottom.
black & light gives back to many causes. I love that! Each candle is packaged and shipped by workers with disabilities, thus creating jobs in a tough economy. They have partnered with the University of California Davis and their critical research on the honeybee crisis. 10% of the net proceeds of the Bee Candle sales is donated to the University's research. black & light also supports Airline Ambassadors International, a group that helps underprivileged children and families across the globe. black & light co. donates a portion from the sale of each of its ‘Inspirational’ candles directly to A.A.I. black & light is truly sharing the glow from inside!
The lovely candles are available to purchase at select retail locations and directly online. If you purchase 3 or more candles - you get free shipping! They are also offering a summer discount code for 20% off - use code SUNNY85. Once you see the gorgeous glow, you will be back for more.
