For Spartanburg, South Carolina, based Bridgewater Candle Company, creating fragrances that are a snapshot of life is only one of its day jobs. Through the campaign “Light A Candle, Feed A Child “(with the sell of any jar candle and not just new fragrances), an orphan is fed for one day. The company also works closely with the nonprofit organization Rice Bowls, where it is able to provide orphans worldwide with nourishing meals.

Bridgewater Candle Company has harnessed the power of memories in each carefully crafted aroma. Its new blend of natural soy wax burns clean and is housed in contemporary holders that are perfect complements to any home’s decor. The company has recently released two new scents, with the proceeds from each sale of a jar candle going to feed one child for one day.

Drawing on the amazing human ability to re-experience moments through scent, Spring Dress combines the femininity of peony and magnolia with sparkling citrus and warm mahogany for a glimpse back at sunny days past. When the weather is still gloomy, simply sit back with a good book and a mug of tea and dream of the sunshine and breezes of the coming seasons.

Sweet Summer Tea brings the scents of refreshing teas mingled with strawberries, lemons and a kiss of lily blossoms to any room. This concoction adds a cheerful playfulness to dining areas, and would be a fun way to recreate a romantic picnic indoors.

Sweet Grace is a special edition candle they have created as a tribute to the human spirit. The candle combines tantalizing fruit scents with sparkling tea and classic patchouli to create an aura of peacefulness and purity. For each of these candles sold, Bridgewater will make a donation to feed one orphaned child for one week.

Spring Dress and Sweet Summer Tea are available in a large jar candle, a small jar candle, votive candles, tealights, home fragrance oil, scented sachets, and decorative reed diffusers. Their petite reed diffusers feature biodegradable fiber reeds that are 100-percent more effective at spreading aromas than the traditional reeds. Large candles burn for 140 to 160 hours and the small candles burn for 65 to 85 hours, providing plenty of time to relax and reflect.

Since 1997, Bridgewater Candle Company has been providing stunningly scented candles made right here in the U.S. Its partnership with Rice Bowls has been a humanitarian outlet that allows the companyt to share its success with the world.
