In 2005 David came to Manhattan for a month to work with Jon at his Bluecorn retail booth in the Union Square Holiday Market. It was at that pointthat jon told David of his vision to develop an affordable, non-toxic candle to replace the paraffin votives burning on the tables of New York retaurants and everywhere else. Although Bluecorn's candles are all natural and non-toxic, beeswax is too expensive to compete on a mass scale with the much cheaper paraffin- so the key was affordable. For the next four years Jon and David worked together to delevop Jon's idea into reality and in April of 2010 they launched GoodLight Natural Candles.
I was able to try a huge selection of awesome GoodLight candles for myself. A few of my favorites are the scented Travel Tins. I received one 6oz Eucalyptus Citrus and one 2oz Fig Grapefruit scented Travel Tin candle. The 6oz candle will burn for up to 30 hours and the 2 oz will burn for 15 hours. They are made of 100% palm wax and have a cotton wick.
The Eucalyptus Citrus blend is subtle and fresh, simutaneously reminiscent of a well-deserved trip to the spa or a summer drive down California's Highway 1 with the top down. It is bright, refreshing and invigorating. Bright the outdoors in with this fresh scent.
I loooooove, love the sweet and fruity Fig Grapefruit blend. It is GoodLights most popular scent and once you smell it you will understand why. It's like olfactory candy, really. It's a beautiful way to brighten any room or lighten any mood. I am a huge fan of citrus scents and this Fig Grapefruit candle is delicious.
These super cute travel tins allow you to bring your Goodlight candle with you everywhere you go.
These dainty little tea light candles like all the other GoodLight products are infused with the blend of pure botanical and essential oils. These oils are derived from plants, extracted by cold-pressing, steam or vacuum distillation. As you might expect from GoodLight, there are no phthalates, synthetic or artificial fragrances, chemicals, lead or paraffin. Just like the unscented foundation line, the wax is 100% clean-burning palm wax, and wicks are pure cotton....because you breathe what you burn.
The Scented Line comes in Travel Tins, Votives and Tea Lights. Available in the delicious blends of Lavendar, Fig Grapefruit, Lemongrass Cassia and Eucalyptus Citrus.
I have a set of four 8 inch unscented taper candles. They burn for about 7 hours and are perfect for the dinner table. I love to decorate our dinner table especially at the holidays and with the scent of warm food and fresh pine in the air I find an unscented candle is perfect. It adds that beautiful flicker to the room without figthing the other scents that fill the.room. GoodLight Taper candles come in a 8 inch, 10 inch and 4 inch selection.
The Pillar candles are also perfect to decorate with. You might like just one alone on a table or if you are like me you might want to place a number of them together. The pillar candles come in a variety of sizes so I like to mix and match the sizes when decorating. You can get these Pillars in 2" x 4.6",
You can also buy them directly off the goodLight website!
