Amazon Lights was incorporated in 2004. What started out as an interest and a hobby developed into a line of premium outdoor products. We are a small company with a focus on natural, unique & effective products, which benefit both our customers and our Community Trade partners.
WHAT SETS US APART
At Amazon Lights, we believe in the pure, gratifying and restorative influence of essential oils. That is why our candles, incense cones and incense sticks exceed recommended volumes by adding a minimum of 10% essential oils to our formulations.
The vast majority of outdoor products on the the retail market contain a very low percentage of essential oils and, as a result, are relatively ineffective. Typically, outdoor products contain less than 2% essential oils, far less than the 5% recommended to be effectively aromatic.
Amazon Lights products contain 300% to 500% more essential oils than the majority of competitive products available.
What is Brazilian Andiroba?
The Andiroba tree is native to tropical South America. Extracts from its bark, flowers and fruits have been used for centuries by the Amazonian people as a source of prevention and treatment for a variety of ailments: arthritis, inflammation, skin disorders, fevers, flu and depression – just to name a few.
Andiroba oil, a premier ingredient in Amazon Lights, is extracted from the round chestnut-like fruits bearing seeds which contain the rich, yellow oil. Though the method is primitive – the seeds are boiled and later squeezed in a wood press known as a tipiti – one Andiroba tree can produce nearly a quarter of a ton of seeds annually. The Andiroba seed is composed of 50% oil, making this one of Brazil’s most sustainable rainforest products.
PROMOTING SUSTAINABILITY IN THE AMAZON
Amazon Lights is a proud supporter of Community Trade in the Brazilian Amazon. Andiroba oil, a key ingredient in our premium outdoor products, is provided to our manufacturing facilities through the indigenous tribes of the Amazon.
Natural. Sustainable. Supports Community Trade.
