When we started The Stella Projects candle line, our desire was to create a sustainable product that could provide employment, income, and training to women rebuilding their lives after addiction, incarceration, homelessness, domestic violence, and other traumas.

To date, we have hired two women working to make our candles while receiving paid training on skills such as personal finances, computers, and resumes/interviews. It has been incredible to see how this program and our social enterprise efforts have provided for these women.

We are excited to have businesses use our candles for branding and promotional purposes. We have realtors, mortgage groups, and banks that have created Private Labels for our candles to use at events, client appreciation, and employee gifts. This has been a great way to sell more of our candles and share more about our mission, but also for businesses to give something that is unique and impactful to the community. Every candle sold is an investment in a woman's future.

The Stella Projects candles are hand poured with 100% soy wax, phthalate-free fragrance oil, and wicks made of cotton, containing no lead, zinc, or other metals. They are beautifully boxed with matches, ready for gift giving.

The Holiday Season is the perfect time to give The Stella Projects candles to your employees, customers, and partners. If you are interested in creating a private label for our candles, please contact Lynde Griggs via email - lynde@belleandsparrows.org
