Light one up

"Best candles ever. Not overpowering and fake smelling—just delightful!"

Zoë Weld, O’Fallon, IL


Ignite Good Feelings

Early hominids tamed fire hundreds of thousands of years ago. Even today, being near a flame strikes chords within us of security, safety, and wellbeing. Light a candle and relax.

All Vegetable

We are proud to offer you the finest quality hand-poured candles. Our proprietary, vegan blend of soy, coconut, and candelilla waxes ensures a clean and long-lasting burn.

All Cotton Wicks

Braided all-cotton wicks support a steady flame. Yes, Candace, your parrot will be safe—no zinc or zinc alloy here. 

Essential Oils

The alluring aromas are derived from essential oils. Our candles smell great unlit and burning. You'll find no fake fragrances here. (The parrot breathes a sigh of relief.)

Safety Warnings

  • Never leave a candle unattended.
  • Don’t burn on or near anything flammable.
  • Keep away from children and pets.


"It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness."

Eleanor Roosevelt



How to Burn Herbaria Candles

For safety and to make them last as long as possible

  • Keep wicks trimmed to 1/4" for the best flame.
  • Always try to achieve a full melt pool—liquid all the way across, before extinguishing the candle. The first burn will determine how the candle will melt for the rest of its life. Each time you light it, burn for about an hour. This will prevent tunneling and allow the candle to burn its brightest for as long as possible.
  • Don't burn a candle for more than four hours. 
  • Keep debris out of the candle.
  • A “mushroom” shape can develop on the end of your wick. Trim it before use.
  • Burn candles in a well-ventilated room, away from drafts.
  • Keep candles at least 3” apart.
  • Burn on a level, non-flammable surface.
  • Unless thoroughly cooled, don’t move or touch the candle container.

Why Herbaria Candles?

  • Clean and long-burning all-vegetable wax blend.
  • Cotton wicks with a paper core for a steady flame and no toxins.
  • Scented only with essential oils—never synthetic fragrances or isolates. Our aromas may not be as pervasive as those artificial scents, but take comfort in their wholesome, natural bouquet.
  • The Danes, who burn more candles than anyone in the world, know about ”hygge.” Candlelight promotes relaxation, comfort, and well-being.
  • We are happy to reuse our jars after the candles have burned.
