Why we recommend
This brand's inspiring fight against homelessness and nonprofit business structure makes them an easy recommendation from us. Made by DWC's candles are 100% soy wax and hand-poured by the women in their job training programs, and the proceeds go right back toward empowering women transitioning out of homelessness, making every purchase one you can feel good about!
