GYV: Scented Candles and Hand Creams


GYV is an awesome family-owned company that celebrates the culture of Central America through scented candles and hand creams made with the lush botanical ingredients born in Mesoamerica. They use staple ingredients that the Mesoamerican ancestors used in an authentic way.

The candles are made with wax blends of natural, organic ingredients like Coconut wax, Corn, and Pumpkin seed oil. The wick is cotton. The candles are long burning, vegan, and non-toxic.


The hand creams are made with ingredients such as Maize oil, Pumpkin seed oil, Frijol Negro extract, chile extract, and oil from the prickly pear seed. This oil contains strong antioxidant and free radical scavenging properties plus essential fatty acids like Linoleic Acid and Omega 6. The hand creams are also parabens and cruelty-free.

Indeed, the use of Mesoamerican ingredients, scents, flavors, voices, and places celebrates a rich culture and ancient knowledge.

Artists from places like El Salvador and Mexico design the packaging for the products. So, not only the inside but also the outside of the GYV products reflects the wonderful culture of Mesoamerica!

With every purchase you make, GYV gives a portion of the proceeds to select charities important to the community.

You can get the GYV candles and hand creams straight from their website. You can also find them on Amazon.
