Whether it’s setting the mood for a dinner for two, creating a cozy vibe for enjoying that holiday romcom, or just warming up a room, candles are the ultimate “got your back” product. Set the tone this season with these vegan candle brands that are better than Bath & Body Works.

Vegan Candle Co.

We love Vegan Candle Co. for their non-GMO soy wax candles that are ethically sourced, clean, and sustainable in scents like Fireside, Smoky Bourbon, Mandarin Basil, and Coastal Pine. This LGBTQ-owned company also utilizes a plastic-free production process.

Sanari Candle

Clean burning and crafted from essential oils, fragrances from Sanari Candle include Sorbetto (blood orange, coconut, & vanilla bean), Biscotti (vanilla bean, nutmeg, & cinnamon), Aria (sweet tangerine, ylan ylang, & lavender), and more.


Floral Street

Floral Street offers fine fragrances for the woman of today. Big, bold, beautiful, and strong, these scents are feminine without resorting to misogynistic marketing strategies or elitist price tags. We love the affordability and sustainability of the brand. Check out their mini scented candles in fragrances like vanilla bloom, wonderland bloom, midnight tulip, and more.

Floral Street


Creating mood-setting scents in containers that can be repurposed once the wax is gone, Paddwax levels up sustainable warmth. We’re not sure which is more appealing, the selection of fragrances (bergamot + mahogany, orange blossom, and salted blue agave, for starters) or the line of vessels the fragrances come in.

Tammie, a vegan of 17 years, is a former psychology professor and self-proclaimed wellness guru. Indie author, kindness ambassador, and big dreamer, she’s just a girl, standing in front of a broken US food system, asking it to be vegan.

Tofu Tikkā Recipe

Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
