Whether they’re providing light during a power outage, serving as a last minute gift for mom, or covering an odor while the windows are shut (sure, it was the dog), candles can really come in handy. Instead of going to a big box store for a candle made of god-knows-what that was shipped from god-knows-where, check out these Seattle-made candles crafted with sustainable business practices.
