Style and Substance: Natural Light

Now even candles are getting the all-natural treatment, thanks to Richmonder John Erikson. Unlike most candles, his soy wax versions, with 100 percent cotton wicks, are made without paraffin, a derivative of petroleum. Soy wax burns cooler and about 50 percent longer, and doesn't emit any pollutants.

Erikson mixes his own fragrances. His most popular are Virginia Sunshine, English lavender and honeysuckle jasmine. A large candle is $15, available at House of Lukaya at 1717 E. Main St. in Shockoe Bottom and at the 17th Street Farmers' Market on Thursdays and Saturdays. -- C.N.C.
