The profits from the sale of these candles go straight back to the help the Dalit people of India.

This would make such a cute gift, although I bought them for myself ;) Very strong scent which will last well, and I can reuse the lovely little clay pots.

Pretty little hand-made tea lights from India made by girls and women to help their situation.
Fair trade, helpful to the makers.
Good quality obviously handmade, and with lavender scent.

Very sweet little candles, they are smaller than normal tea lights but much more attractive and have a lovely scent too. I also really like the ethical enterprise behind them.
