Lighting The Way
Who They Are
There’s just something about the glow of a candle that's so calming and peaceful. For Rebecca Aghalarpour, a candle symbolized a little more than that. Every Sunday, Rebecca and her daughter had a ritual of lighting a candle, making a pot of tea, and baking together. That was–until Rebecca was diagnosed with breast cancer.
With the diagnosis, Rebecca started to remove possible toxins from her home–including her beloved candles. Traditional candles are full of petroleum, dyes, artificial fragrances, and animal byproducts, and she wanted to make her home as toxin free as she could. She eventually was able to go back to baking with her daughter on Sundays, but it just wasn’t the same without the presence of the flickering candle light. Rebecca couldn't give up her special mother-daughter ritual, so she set out to find a better solution.
After months of research and hard work, Rebecca created Sanari Plant Based Candles. The name “Sanari” is a combination of the names of her two children, Aria and Sanam. Aria means Air and Sanam means Love, creating pure love in the air you breathe. Knowing that burning candles from organic essential oils is healthy and wholesome, her Sunday afternoon baking was filled with pure, healing, and beautiful light once again. To spread this light, Sanari gives 5% of retail sales to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, providing help and inspiring hope to those effected by breast cancer through early detection, education, and support!
