The body is a vessel made in different forms, shapes, and sizes, but that doesn’t mean that one is better than the other! All bodies are unique and beautiful in their own way; thus, we should strive to accept our true form and love it despite the imperfections. 

Body positivity is a movement that aims to break the stigma on beauty standards and encourage everyone to be confident in their own skin and hopefully inspire others to do the same.

Nowadays, it has become acknowledged by many and is being promoted in different ways, just like this ploy of creating a product that may be simple but delivers an impactful message to their consumers, the body-positivity candles. 

Here’s where you can get this unique product that is not only inspirational but eco-friendly and affordable as well.

Vida stands with the advocacy of body positivity and self-love, thus, it enticed them to create a line of body-positivity candles entitled, The Squad. It features a wide range of body types such as the Him, Her, Curvy, and Preggy (priced at P350 each). The candles were produced from a high-quality blend of soy and beeswax, which are eco-friendly and sustainable. The Squad was morphed into different body types with various skin tones, to give out the message that “All Bodies, are Good Bodies.”

Muni coined its name from the Filipino-term, Muni-Muni which means to “ponder or think-deeply.” They believe that each scent gives a nostalgic feel to reminisce on memories of the past. With their candles, they hope to encourage people to see the beauty within themselves, even if in different forms. The body-shaped candles are named the Ciana and Malena and are priced at a range of P550 to P900 depending on the preferred color and size.
