GoodLight's popular tea lights are now infused with a 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. And 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.(tm)
Lavender has long been used in aromatherapy for its relaxing and soothing properties, so it's not surprising that it is one of the most popular candle scents. But with 39 species in the Lavandula genus of flowers and a wide variety of cross-pollinated hybrids to choose from, finding the very best pure essential oil for these candles took some time. Judging from the feedback GoodLight received, they picked the right one.

David and Jon started in New York, 2005 with Jon's dream of making non-toxic candles that everyone could afford. Jon started Bluecorn Naturals, which is now a leading brand in beeswax candles. While he'd made a non-toxic candle, Jon felt like not everyone could afford beeswax and continued working with David. The, in 2010, they founded GoodLight Candles. These candles were also non-toxic, but were more affordable.
