The purchase of a candle is supporting families and community transformation in Peru and Chicago on their economic independence, better education, social well-being and self-esteem.

Blossom Inspirations and Bright Endeavors have joined effort, partnership and cobranding to transform more lives in our community.

Making candleholder gourds with Peruvian artisans, Blossom Inspirations has found a way to support young moms in Chicago, through the artfully hand-poured paid job training program of Bright Endeavors.

Each candle starts with a natural gourd that was hand picked, dried, carved, painted and polished by a family of artisans in Peru. The tradition of carved gourds is an artistic expression that dates back over 3,000 years. 100% soy vegetable wax poured with Whitebark Pine fragrance by young moms in Chicago.

Size:  approx. 2.75″ diameter

Colors:  natural

Materials:  Ornamental holders are made from natural bottle gourds and currently candle is 100% soy vegetable wax.

Production:  Each batch of ornaments takes several months to complete.  This includes the growing, picking and sun drying process.  Gourds are then cleaned, dyed & painted, carved by hand, and polished.  Gourds are grown and dried in Northern Peru and crafted in home workshops in Lima, Peru.

Carbon Footprint: The production and transportation of this gourd resulted in 500 grams of CO2 emission, roughly equivalent to driving 2 miles in a car.
