They matter because it is through the sweat, tears, creativity, wisdom, resilience and strength of our forefathers, that this nation came to be. They matter because we are husbands, wives, sons and daughters whose value requires no justification or explanation, as it it embedded in the very core of our existence. They matter because the blatant and long-standing social and economic injustices steal from our collective humanity. They matter because we are you and you are us.
As the world experiences an awakening, challenge yourself to discover a new perspective. Read a book that you wouldn't normally select, take a left or right turn down a street that you wouldn't typically travel, watch a documentary, use your platform to initiate courageous conversations - but by all means - do the work. Precious lives are counting on it.
If your candle label reads like a food label, here's a gentle reminder: Less is more. Nori + Mali candles are made of 100% soy wax, are phthalate and dye-free and include lead-free, cotton wicks. We've done our homework to ensure your safety and that of our planet.
Where are your candles made?
Our candles are hand poured in small batches in our home studio. When you purchase from us, you can rest assured that we have personally handled every jar and ensure a quality, fragrant, clean-burning candle.
Why soy candles?
That's easy - we love candles! But with just a little research, we quickly discovered that the products we were purchasing and burning in our home included potentially toxic chemicals. We were determined to create a quality candle that we could feel good about sharing. Guided by a clear vision and a few environmentally-friendly ingredients, Nori + Mali Candle Co. was born. In the words of Maya Angelou, "When you know better; do better."
We hope you benefit from our labor of love.
