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. 

As seen in Latina magazine!

Candela Peru Artisan Story
Peru

Madre de Dios, a mountainous area of pristine forests, is one of the poorest regions of Peru. The most lucrative industry here is the collection and processing of the Amazon (Brazil) nut into oils, candy and candles for export. Unfortunately, few producers are informed or rewarded for extracting the oil in a sustainable manner meaning the region's rates of rainforest destruction are almost as high as its poverty.

Candela Peru, which means “Alternative Trade of Non Traditional Products for the Development of Latin America,” works with 266 Peruvian farmers in this part of the Amazon rainforest to harvest the Brazil nut in a socially and environmentally-responsible manner. Besides creating steady work for rural families, the company helps small producers streamline their production chains for increased capacity and helps them to implement social and environmental projects in their area. In this way, Candela Peru helps improve farmers way of living and promotes forest conservation in a biologically diverse region.

Candela Peru developed an Organic Certification program in 2001 to include Peruvian Brazil Nuts in the growing organic market, and works with local producers to obtain their organic certification. The company also hosts classes in forest management to educate farmers on how sustainable forestry practices can offer financial reward.

Brazil Nuts form the basis for everything Candela Peru offers
