*** As the weather gets colder, the candle wax I use is more liable to become frosted (small white crystal-looking imperfections in the wax). Note that this is totally normal and an indicator that I am using a natural soy product with only one additive- natural coconut oil. I use a special type of wax formulated for a great scent throw, but it sometimes doesn't look as flawless as other types of wax, especially when exposed to really cold temperatures during shipping. I do my best to keep candles warm, but if you're worried about frosting, keep an eye on your tracking number to make sure that your candle doesn't sit outside too long after it's delivered! ***


Thank you for checking out Gillywick Goods! All of my candles are made with all natural soy wax, zinc and lead free wicks, and the finest phthalate free fragrances.

About GillywickGoods

Sales 1,955
On Etsy since 2017

Our goal is to transport you to your favorite pop culture world!

Ever since I was a little girl hiding in my dad's library reading way past my bedtime, I've had a fascination with fictional worlds. And who could blame me when stepping into a new world is as easy as turning a page? But I always wanted more- I wanted to be able to actually *smell* the pastries cooking in the Hogwarts kitchen, or *feel* the ocean breeze at Cair Paraval. So I created Gillywick Goods with one mission- to have each of my products transport you right into your favorite Pop Culture worlds!

Each of my items is hand made or hand designed by me right in my own home with tons of love and craftsmanship that took a long, long time to learn. I do my very best to offer you the highest quality merchandise I can and I only sell items that I'd be proud to place on my own shelves.

A little about me? Well my name is Hailey and I've been working with books for as long as I can remember. With a BA in both English and Creative Writing, I followed my dream of spending my life working surrounded by books first to a bookstore, then to a library, and then to a literary agency, and now here! It's incredibly humbling and amazing to be able to follow my dreams the way I am, so I am so thankful to everyone who shares word about my little company, buys my products, and even likes my page! So THANK YOU!!!

Frequently asked questions
How long will it take to ship my candle?

My processing times are currently 3-7 business days. I typically ship candles on Mondays and Thursdays. Please allow a little extra processing time during holidays or sales as the busier I get, the harder it is to keep up with orders! I ship candles via Priority Mail from USPS, so after your candles have been processed and handed off to a mail carrier, I cannot be responsible for shipping times. Priority Mail comes with tracking information, so if you see that a package isn’t on time or was delivered but you don’t have it, please first contact USPS as usually they can most often assist you more than I can.

Why soy wax?

Soy wax is a wonderful alternative to many other waxes on the market. Not only is the wax I use all natural, but it’s also grown here in the USA. Plus, soy wax burns much cleaner than most other waxes which is always a good thing!

Why should I keep my wick trimmed?

Keeping your wick trimmed insures that your flame will remain the size that it should be and that your candle burns clean. So please trim your wicks! The ideal wick size is ¼ of an inch.

I don’t like the scent of my candle. What can I do?

It’s very hard to pick a candle scent over the internet. I get it! (But I’m super thankful that you did 😊) If the scent of your candle isn’t exactly what you were hoping for, I do offer exchanges (but unfortunately not returns at this time). Simply send me a message and I’ll walk you through sending your old candle back. Since USPS did fulfill their end of the bargain by delivering your original candle to you, you will still need to pay to ship your replacement candle.

My candle arrived broken. Can I get a replacement?

Absolutely! I do require photographic evidence of how your candle broke for two reasons. First, it’s a strange world we live in and I’ve been scammed by people claiming they’ve received broken candles before :(. Second, if I see how/where the candle broke, I can readjust my packing so that it doesn’t happen again! Luckily for me, all packages are insured by USPS. It may take a little more time than your first order to receive your replacement candle as I have to wait on insurance at USPS, so please be patient!

My candle wax tunneled. What should I do?

Most people don’t know this, but candle’s have memories. Always make sure to burn your candle all the way to the edges during your first burn so that your candle will burn evenly. If you’re still having issues, you can always put your candle in your over on the lowest setting to melt it all down and let it set up again. But NEVER put your candle in the microwave as the wicks are held in place with metal! Feel free to message me if you have any other questions!

I need my order rushed. Help!

I gladly do rush processing, but do charge an extra $3 for it because orders that need rush processing can sometimes keep me working well past midnight (and owning your own business means there’s no overtime pay ☹)! Let me know in a note with your order or in a message what kind of processing you need and I’ll try my best! Sometimes, however, if you need an order rushed right away I may not be able to accommodate it due to life getting in the way. So please make sure you always ask first!

Custom and personalized orders

I offer custom and personalized orders on an occasional basis. You'll find listings for Custom Candles in my shop every now and then, but they sell out quick! If you'd like to stay ahead of the game, you can follow me on social media where I always post before Customs are listed!
