Review- Aveda Light The Way Candle

100% naturally derived soy wax candle infused with organic lavender and other pure flower and plant extracts in candleholders that were once wine cooler bottles. $12

Aveda's limited-edition Light the Way Candle is a beautiful soy wax candle where 100% cost of the candle goes towards protecting clean water. What a great cause - in my opinion! It's also pretty cool that the handsome glass holder is made from recycled wine cooler bottles (someone had fun!), which can also be reused again later! The soy candle is also filled with a delightful organic lavender essence and pure flower/plant extracts. Besides being such an eco-friendly product, I also really love that this candle burns so cleanly, with little to no soot or smoke and smells so elegantly - not too overpowering but not too faint either. There's a lovely and pleasant fragrance that fills the room with just the right subtlety and softness. Some candles with a strong or floral scent can give me a headache at times, but that didn't happen at all with this candle. Lavender is one of my all-time favorite scents and Aveda brings it out amazingly well in the Light the Way candle. This is definitely a wonderful gift to either give and/or receive, especially for the eco-consicous consumer, as well making a perfect gift to give yourself and Mother Earth!
