"Or & Ahavah" (Hebrew for “Light & Love”) was created during a dramatic rise in antisemitism, and is the first and only company exclusively dedicated to celebrating Jewish culture through Jewish-inspired scented candles and wax melts, and soon other self-care items.
Or & Ahavah wants to fill your home with scents that make you smile and reflect. This is especially meaningful when you think about the prevalence and symbolism of candles in Judaism: candlelight is a reminder of G-d’s presence; the candle's flame is a representation of the soul and serves as a reminder of the beauty of life; and candles are equated with honor and joy, with the belief that there can be no peace without light.
Or & Ahavah candles (and wax melts) are Jewish-mother approved. Why? Because they are “clean” candles made with high-quality ingredients that don’t contain any of the meshugas found in many candles on the market (NO toxins, lead, petroleum byproducts, phthalates, additives, or dyes). The candles contain 100% all-natural Kosher soy wax, are scented with essential oil blends, and have cotton wicks. Each candle is handcrafted by a nice Jewish girl, made with ahavah, and contains a healthy dose of chutzpah.
