Florence- Tobacco + Leather Soy Candle
The Florence soy candle has a tobacco and leather scent. Hand poured in Dallas, Texas by refugee women, these candles represent both an economic empowerment initiative as well as a peacemaking initiative between women of different faiths.
These small-batch candles are made of the finest ingredients, including clean-burning all-natural soy wax and keenly combined fragrances consisting of natural and essential oils.

The majority of refugees who are resettled to the United States come from environments of violent conflict or war. This reality for refugees places them at the apex of trauma where torture, the murder of close family members, rape, and other personal experiences shape their life in dramatic ways. Most of the programs and initiatives for resettled refugees in the US do not address this aspect of the lives of those whom they serve.
With the formation of a “deeper” mission SEEK began to focus in the thematic areas of Conflict Transformation, Capacity Building, and Advocacy. These guiding themes directed our programmatic focus in the areas of girls and women’s empowerment, education for children and youth, trauma healing, and developing leaders for peace.
