During the month of March we are DOUBLING the % of proceeds donated from every candle!

#ScentAbroad Scholarship

Through our giving we hope to provide opportunity. Our founder had an opportunity to travel from her hometown of 2,000 and study abroad in college. This experience vastly expanded her understanding of the world, the people in it, and that the best approach for navigating the unknown was approaching it with a genuine sense of curiosity.

15% of our proceeds aim to provide the same experience, to help fund study abroad opportunities for U.S. college students from rural backgrounds and programs at rural community colleges. 

We are currently working to identify community foundations, existing scholarship funds, or rural community college programs to partner with. If you have a suggestion please write to us at discover@odmecandle.co
