Light a Candle

There are three ways you can participate in this event:

  2. Purchase a hand-crafted soy candle to support our programming. These limited edition candles are only available to people living in the Greater Toronto Area.

  • build a peer-to-peer support network so that people that are struggling can connect and feel less alone;
  • increase community awareness about mental health and mental illness;
  • empower our youth with life coping skills;
  • create a mindful and compassionate community for everyone.

About our hand-crafted Soy Candles

Our candles are hand-crafted and are available for purchase from people living in the Greater Toronto Area.

Candles are available for $20 each or three for $50. You may mix and match scents.

The candles are made using coconut soy and other high quality ingredients. Each candle is 4.5oz and will burn for approximately 28 hours. They are available in four different scents:

  • I am Calm - Lemongrass natural fragrance infused with essential oils 
  • I am Grounded - Frankincense and myrrh infused with essential oils
  • I am Uplifted - Pumpkin pie infused with essential oils 
  • Memories of Christmas - Pine infused with essential oils

How to light your coconut soy wax candle for the first time:

  • When lighting for the first time allow the wax to melt across the entire diameter of the candle.
  • This will help create an even slow burn and help prevent candle tunneling.
  • Instead of blowing out the flame, use a candle snuffer.  This help prevent smoke.
  • Keep lid on after each burning.
