I love scented candles. I may not burn them as often as I should but the candle I received for Christmas has a great cause and story tied to it. 

I heard about Thistle Farms in Nashville through a friend a couple of months ago. Its founder Becca Stevens was nominated as a CNN Hero this past year, watch.

Lavender is one of my favorite scents. I will cherish my Thistle Farms candle for a while.
