I just watched the Documentary on YouTube about DL Candles and would like to order a candle and a t-shirt. I’m from the US and worked in Grant programming called SRV-Social Role Valorization. The concept comes from Wolfe Wofensberger. He said we all have roles in life, some are more socially valued than others. We took this concept as the basis for our program to assist people with physical and intellectual disabilities to not only find socially valued roles , but roles that they wanted to achieve no matter how big they might be.
Many participants were able to exceed their goals. I met a lady who ran a successful jewellery business because she had the right support system in place-some of her supporters were unpaid while others were paid supports. I was amazed and forever changed by this program.
We need more people like you in this world!!! Thank you for seeing that people with disabilities are just people like everyone else with the same hopes and dreams.

I recently received one of your candles as a gift. I would just like to say how nicely it was wrapped and packed and what a lovely smell it has.

Hi there. I just want to thank you for the fantastic and quick service, my candle arrived yesterday morning.
The scent of the candle is lovely and thank you so much for the extra wee tea light, Marshmallow Puff. I love the smell of that too. Wishing you all a great day and thank you again.

I was recently given a Life Education Downlights candle as a gift and I just wanted to let you know that this is the best candle I have ever had.
Over the years I have tried out quite a few but this candle smells absolutely delicous and looks beautiful.
I have also read about your story and the business and I just wanted to let you know what an amazing job you are doing and an amazing product. When I light the candle it puts a smile on my face because I know how the room will soon smell amazing and that I am supporting such a great team. With so many mass produced things on the market it is nice to know the very special story behind these candles and that they are NZ made.
I am def buying more Downlights candles from now on and will tell other people how great they are.

I have given a number of these candles as gifts to clients. The story behind these beautiful products makes them just that bit more special. Thanks Emma and family.

Ok I purchased the vanilla as a gift.. I have to say I’ve never been a vanilla fan but I’m sold. When lit it smells Devine and when the sun in the afternoon was on it it released the aroma.
Ok I’m sold on your vanilla downlights.. thanks heaps for an awesome gift idea.

Ordered two days ago and they were delivered to my doorstep this morning. Very impressed with how smooth and easy the ordering process was, and the fragrance that fills the box as it is opened was an extra “wow”. Love the hand-written card, and the candles are lovely too. The French Vanilla aroma is perfect, not overwhelming like some that I have bought from elsewhere. I will be ordering more! Well done Emma, Tony and Jennifer!

Just received my first order today and what amazing service and fast delivery. You have absolutely nailed the salted caramel, it is divine. Can't wait to try the Vanilla and every other scent you have.

I bought the French Vanilla Downlight today & lit it on this afternoon. It smelt lovely immediately and even after I've blown the candle out, I can still smell it! 100% satisfied customer & will be buying more!

You are AMAZING and I love your passion and dedication you put into each and every candle. I hope you don't mind, but I have shared your page in the hope it sparks interest in overseas like America, England and Australia (where I have family members that may be interested in buying your delicious smelling candles). Keep up the wonderful work you do and may you live the dream.
