Meraleva - Candles with heart and soul

The Meraleva business is based on sustainability in everyday life through recycling of stearin and paraffin to save the resources of the planet. We make new, beautiful candles out of your old stumps, pillar candles and tea lights. 10% of the revenue is donated to Barncancerfonden - the Children’s Cancer Fund in Sweden.
Welcome to us!
