About InterstellarApotheca

Sales 1,258
On Etsy since 2021

Handmade specialty candles and crystals, made with love in Waco,TX.

Interstellar Apothecary is a small business based in Waco, Texas, specializing in handmade, artisan candles and original bismuth crystal creations. During the pandemic, I decided to expound on my love of whimsical, fun, food themed candles, and bismuth crystal creations, thus Interstellar Apothecary was born! With the world going through such uncertain times, I decided to create a company that would put a smile on people’s faces, and help them create fun, meaningful memories with friends and family through gifts and home decor.
