Ocean Breeze Soy Candle - Candles for a Cause
The Ocean Breeze candle is a very special candle for our family. It was created in memory of our grandma after she passed due to her decline in health from Polycystic Kidney Disease. (More on that below) This fragrance will sweep you away to the coast and have you feeling the ocean breeze on your skin. It is a blend of the salty ozone with fresh citrus. Ocean Breeze is a great candle for your bathroom for a spa-like feel.
Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) runs in our family. My grandma passed due to health problems surrounding her PKD and we are hoping to raise awareness and funds to find a cure. Our dad recently received a life-saving kidney transplant from a coworker and is no longer on dialysis at age 54. Our aunt has also received a transplant with many other in our extended family affected by the diease. We want to END PKD for our family and all the others battling the disease. Becuase PKD is a genetic disease, both of us and our brother could have the disease as well. There is no cure for PKD, only dialysis and transplant.
For every sale of our Ocean Breeze candle (only available in our 8oz size) we will donate $5 to the PKD Foundation in support of finding a cure for our family and hundreds of thousands of others.
WHAT IS THE PKD FOUNDATION?
The PKD Foundation is the only organization in the United States solely dedicated to finding treatments and a cure for polycystic kidney disease (PKD) to improve the lives of those it affects. They do this through promoting programs of research, education, advocacy, support and awareness on a national level, along with direct services in local communities across the country. Their vision is that one day, no one will suffer the full effects of PKD.

Why should you choose our Soy Candles?
All of our soy candles are made with pure soy wax made of US grown soybeans and vegetables. Soy wax burns cleaner and safer than the paraffin wax you find in most candles. We do not add any color to our candles to keep them as toxin free as possible and it gives them a neutral look to fit any decor. We use phthalate free fragrances and cotton wicks to keep our candles as safe as possible.
