Ama's Originals Candles

Ama Shash Candles was the first Venture Ama Shash tackled. With no experience and a lot of trepidation, she made a candle. It leaked out the bottom of the form and wasn't very much a candle. Not one to give up, she tried again and with a little patience created a set of red heart candles! At the same time, a small group of red tea lights also appeared. And so began the line of Ama's Originals Candles.

Ama's Originals Candles are available in a virtual rainbow of colors and some are even rainbows themselves! Shapes and sizes, scented and unscented, Ama's Originals Candles are a beautiful way to add light and warmth to your Spirit.

Ama's Originals candles can be scented with a variety of natural aromas. There are two methods of embedding the aromas. The first is with essential oils, leaving the candle smooth. The second is by pouring ground herbs into the wax. While we can show you samples of the colors and shapes, we can't provide a sample of the aromas. Sorry!
