Scented Flames for your Mama

Posted by Kay

You’re about to deliver your baby and you have no ride to the hospital. So you walk for 20 miles. You arrive there only to find that there’s no electricity. No clean running water. No trained healthcare provider. None of the basic necessities that an expectant mother relies on during labor.

Incomprehensible to most of us – but not for the 300,000 women that die each year during pregnancy and childbirth, of which most are actually preventable.

Every Mother Counts is a non-profit organisation founded by model Christy Turlington Burns. Christy_Turlington_Burns_Every-Mother-Counts_FounderIt is dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.

100% of the proceeds from your purchase  go towards the programs that Every Mother Counts supports, which link women to critical maternal healthcare in the U.S. and around the world.

The Orange Rose stands as a symbol of what women can accomplish when they join forces. An everlasting bloom that represents a cycle that ends in life, not death. A beautiful gift that adds up to make a difference in thousands of lives.

This is a gift that keeps giving.

Ash & Ames Candle for Every Mother Counts as part of their Orange Rose Collection.



 Le Feu de L’Eau Candles

Designer Wendy Polish and Make-Up Artist Jo Strettell combined their knowledge of art, beauty & fragrance to create this high end candle line which translates as The Fire Of The Water. After years of experimentation with an underwater wax process invented by Wendy’s father and inspired by what was known as a ‘fantasy candle’ in the 1960’s, they are created without using a mold. They are sculpted with the use of water.
