Brazil Nut Candles

Latina Magazine loves our Brazil Nut Candles - Earth-friendly stuff to be eco-chic.
Latina Magazine - November cover and Earth-friendly pages.

We'd like to welcome readers of Latina Magazine who saw us highlighted in the article entitled Earth-friendly stuff: Everything you need to be eco-chic.

We hope you'll help support the Peruvian people to earn a living through their imaginative reuse of brazil nut husks.

These candles are handmade from the pods of Brazil Nut trees in the Amazon Rain Forest of Peru. The wicks are lead-free. The wax is a mix of palm oil and paraffin, with lots of colors and fragrances from which to choose.

$12.00 each

Green Apple (Apple scent), Periwinkle Blue (Rose scent), and Pink (Gardenia scent) Brazil Nut candles handmade in Peru. White (Coconut scent), Yellow (lemon scent), Orange (Mandarin scent) Brazil Nut candles handmade in Peru.



Green Apple


Periwinkle Blue












The Brazil Nuts are removed from the pod, and sold in the local Peruvian market. The harvesters then transform a "waste" item, the pod, into a fine rain forest gift for you. Each candle is approximately 3.5 - 4 inches in diameter.

You'll love the texture of the Brazil Nut pod, and these fantastic fragrances. Plus, you'll know that you helped reuse a renewable resource from the Rainforest and provide much needed income to the Peruvian people.

Below are our Classic Best-Selling Candles. Each of these colors is also available unscented.

Burgundy red (cinnamon scent), Baby blue (Carnation scent) and Vanilla color and scent Brazil Nut candle.
