Here at Lux Illume, we are passionate about two things - candles and serving others. We love the beautiful light candles give, the amazing scents they diffuse and the atmosphere they create. No matter how dark the night, just one candle flame can change everything. That same light is a symbol for the hope and inspiration that comes from giving. In giving to others, the magic of hope and light is shared.
Our candles begin with GMO-free, vegan soy wax; it's fully sustainable. Some companies blend stabilizers or additives into the wax to allow for a longer shelf life. We choose not to. We strive to use phthalate free fragrances as well. Our goal is to make our candles as eco-friendly as possible.
The folks at Lux Illume are above all, givers and servants to others. Two years ago, one of our mentors felt called to begin the lengthy journey of raising money to build an AIDS orphanage in South Africa. We couldn't sit idle and just wish him the best. Recalling our fondness for candles (and the ability to make them), we decided to make a set of four candles and sell them to raise funds for his initiative. From there, our candles have been used in fundraisers for local school PTO's and more. After enough requests for candles outside the various fundraisers we've supported, we expanded our light to a retail format. It's only right to share our light in two ways - by bringing the light to you and bringing light to many others through profit sharing and charitable donations.
