Candles that give back

I’m Jess Cronshaw, the Founder of AGNI Manchester, a social enterprise that uses the majority of it’s profits to run projects that have a positive impact on the wellbeing of our communities.

As a yoga and meditation teacher, I have applied my knowledge of mindful practice to the process of candle making. Learning to make candles increased my confidence and self-esteem, for the first time I found myself creating something that could bring joy to others. For me, candle making is my therapy and I would like to share the benefits with others.

I am fundraising to start a project that will provide mindful candle making training to people that are experiencing stress, anxiety or burn-out. In return for your support of the project we will gift you the following to say thank you:

  • £5 or more – a virtual thank you card
  • £25 or more – soy wax meditation candle in a glass jar (R.R.P. £30)
  • £50 or more – meditation candle making kit
  • £80 or more – meditation candle making kit + video tutorial
  • £115 or more – meditation candle making kit + video tutorial + ceramic AGNI meditation candle (R.R.P. £40)

My team and I will teach people how to make AGNI soy wax meditation candles in their own homes through a mixture of video tutorials, written material and live video conferencing. I hope to help to support people to make an income, by providing financial rewards to participants.

The funds raised from this project will be used to create and deliver the candle making kits, online training content and financial rewards for participants of the project. If you know someone that could benefit from the project please get in touch to nominate them at
