Scented handmade candles, made by the Dalit People of India. 

We call these Megah single candles – D’lights for ‘Dalit lights’ as we see them as a great alternative to metallic T’lights.

This Megah candle is handmade and comes in a rose scent, with red wax, individually boxed, and also comes in a box of 6.

Aroma: The rose scent comes from perfume oil, not rose essential oil. It smells like Indian shops or Indian incense.

Approx Burn Time: 6 Hours
Candle Dimensions: L 5.5 cm x W 5.5 cm x H 3.5 cm

Dalit candles are an ethical and environmentally friendly alternative to the tea light candle with a smooth finish. 

All Dalit candles are produced by the Dalit people of India and the purchase of these candles supports our work with street children of this people group.

The idea for Dalit Goods came about as a result of a trip to India by Life Association director Simon Hawthorne. Whilst there he began to notice a large number of smashed clay pots around the slum areas of Mumbai. These clay pots turned out to be drinking pots which for thousands of years the Dalit people have often been forced to drink from and then smash on the ground as a sign of their supposed untouchability. It is this powerful symbol of oppression that inspired Simon to launch our range of Dalit-branded products.

It is our goal to design and supply ethically sourced and environmentally sensitive products and provide employment to Dalits in India.
