Welcome to my new blog! Each month, I’ll recommend a product I believe in. Why? Because as a founder myself, I trust the product, the brand, and our shared values. 

This month’s pick:

Fontana Citrus Peel and Pine Essential Oil Candle. 
All your favorite aromas of the holiday season, combined into one festive non-toxic scented candle. Notes of fragrant orange clove pomanders, swirled with fresh cut pine.


I’ve known Fontana Candle Company from their very early days. Katie and Eric realized right away that people wanted clean burning candles. Many people buy candles and burn them in their home without knowing what is in them. These are all natural with beeswax and essential oils.

No “fragrance” – only essential oils
You know all those strong-smelling candles made with “fragrance”? Well, the fragrance is made from chemicals. What are the dark spots on your walls and ceiling from candles? You are inhaling that.

MADE SAFE® Certified
I learned about MADE SAFE® from Fontana. This third-party certification requires thorough screening of all ingredients to ensure they are not harmful to humans, animals, aquatic life, or the environment. Every product Fontana creates becomes MADE SAFE® Certified. Fontana is also Leaping Bunny Certified.

Fontana uses all natural ingredients plus glass containers and metal caps for their candles. Fontana truly is “The Candle Company That Cares”. 

Sense of community and giving back
Fontana often donates to organizations that help those with cancer. Katie had an early case of melanoma and her father suffered from cancer.

Choices that are good for people and the planet
Fontana does an amazing job in helping to educate people about what a clean burning candle is. The MADE SAFE® certification proves the candles are “clean”. Over 6500 ingredients are excluded from Fontana products.

Being transparent in their process and ingredients
Fontana shares lots of videos showing you the process start to finish. Arrival of ingredients, manufacturing, the team at work and shipping. The Fontana website and every product clearly lists every ingredient. Nothing to hide.
