About The Artisans

Prosperity Candle

Prosperity Candle is a social enterprise based in the United States that invests in women entrepreneurs to help end poverty. Candles are the focus of this enterprise because candle making is a business a woman can start and expand in the safety of her own home with local materials, a critical element at times of unrest. This has been the goal of Prosperity Candle since the beginning: to enable women to escape poverty and conflict around the world through entrepreneurship. Every candle purchased helps provide a living wage for the women of Prosperity, who have recently resettled from refugee camps and are working to build a brighter future for themselves and their families in the United States.

Technique

The women of Prosperity Candle are entrepreneurs who have recently resettled from refugee camps. Each candle is handmade in Massachusetts.

The female refugees hand-pour the wax, which is a clean-burning mixture of GMO-free, Kosher-certified, and U.S. food-grade paraffin. They use a carefully crafted mixture of essential oils to create the perfect scent and finish the candle with a 100 percent cotton wick. Every candle is vegan and is created without dyes or enhancers. Finally, the artisan packages the candle and signs her name on the bottom.

A land filled with a variation of resources, the United States has become the world’s third-largest economy. The country’s economy is considered to be mixed as it is composed of both a free market and a command economy. The top five industries that drive the US economy are housing, state and local government, finance and insurance, health/social care, and durable manufacturing. America’s diverse population is composed of Indigenous people and immigrants of European, African, Polynesian, Asian, and Latin American origin. The integration of cultures has transformed American society into a truly multicultural and multiethnic mosaic. These many layers of diversity are reflected in the vast variety of artistic styles and handcraft work.
