2018 Limited Edition Earth Month Candle
You’ve probably smelled vetiver at some point in your life and not even known it. The woody aroma, which comes from a tall, hardy grass grown from India to Haiti, is a popular ingredient in perfumery. Some fragrances heavily feature vetiver, especially colognes, and others use the ingredient as a “fixative” to help the scent last longer.
Vetiver is the new star ingredient in AVEDA's limited-edition 2018 Light the Way candle. The Light the Way candle has become an Earth Month tradition, with 100% of the suggested purchase price of the candle going to Global Greengrants to fund clean water projects around the world.
The Light the Way candle proceeds have also helped Haiti rebuild. Working together with Aquatic Resources Conservation Group (ARC), AVEDA is helping to construct three sustainably built homes in the community of Favette, with bathrooms, solar stoves and solar lighting.
The Favette Vetiver Depot and Community Center is also being built in partnership with Heifer International and International Flavor and Fragrance, one of our top aroma distributors. The center will be earthquake, tornado and flood-resistant, and will include a water catchment system to provide water for the community, plus offices, bathrooms and more, giving the people of Favette a place to gather.
In total, you’ve helped us give a grand total of $170,000 in grants for Haiti since 2010 — pretty amazing, right? Every time you light your new Earth Month candle, enjoy the vetiver aroma and think of the good work you’re helping us carry out in a very special place.
We also want to share that now through the end of April for every candle purchased in the salon your name will be entered to win $75 in AVEDA product! So come shop with us or schedule an appointment with us below. Of course you can always call 252-514-4867
