About

Book and Geeky Inspired

Half Oak Candles was founded in 2015 by Samantha Lorene McKee. I was inspired to make novelty candles because of my love for books and all things nerdy and geek. I also wanted to make quality candles with an amazing scent throw.

Each candle is handmade and hand-poured. I’m dedicated to bring highly scented and delicious smelling candles to customers. We have Soy wax options.
Lead-wicks have been banned in the U.S. since 2003. So I, like any other U.S. shop should, use cotton wicks.

The name Half Oak is dedicated to my grandmother who passed away in 2013. She lived in the same house as me and would always comment and laugh on how silly the name was, may she rest in peace.
Please try my candles made with love and contract me if you have any questions.
