L’Occitane #LightforSight Candle

For the last few years, I have been lucky enough to promote the L'Occitane Charity Candle and the brand has always supported global sight issues and of course, this year's candle it is no different.

L’Occitane #LightforSight Candle in partnership with Unicef
L'Occitane are working alongside Unicef this year and 100% of the profits from each candle sold goes straight to them. At £9 it isn't going to break the bank but it is worth noting that for every sale it does have a meaning and that is a years supply of Vitamin A supplements for 5 children. As we all know, Vitamin A is crucial as it is an essential nutrient for healthy vision, teeth, skeletal tissue, and skin and a deficiency in Vitamin A is the first cause of childhood blindness, affecting a staggering 127 million children worldwide - one-third of whom are under the age of 5. 

With the support of €1,000,000 over three years, L'OCCITANE allows UNICEF to protect 1.7 million children, including Myanmar, Papua New Guinea and Bolivia, three countries where the prevalence of Vitamin deficiencies A is particularly high. UNICEF program aims to provide children aged 6 months to 5 years with the two vital vitamin A doses necessary for their proper development. UNICEF can deploy and support large-scale prevention strategies. More can be read about this partnership here.

So the candle, which as well as raising money, is a beautiful gift and, as with the rest of the L'Occitane Christmas Collection is housed inside a tin and is dressed with an incredibly bold and bright design from the famous fashion house CASTELBAJAC Paris. It smells absolutely incredible and it has notes of freesia, red berries, Heart of Lily of the Valley, Rose and Jasmine which work with the warmer notes of Amber and Rosewood to create a beautiful floral scent which is one of the strongest I have had from a L'Occitane Candle.

This candle is Limited Edition, so if you want to get your hands on it, then you need to do so quickly as it does sell quickly.
