Just your average wannabe pyromancer imagining what your favorite fictional heroes smell like!

Ever wonder what your favorite fictional places and things smell like? What about your heroes (maybe a bit creepy, but hey this is a safe space for weirdos!)

Often we take in our fandoms with our eyes and ears. What about smell, though?—-not the first sense to come to mind, but why not:) My handcrafted candles will enhance your geeky experiences with a scent to match! Playing D&D as a forest druid? Light up a woodsy scent to help you get into character! Feel like a movie/Netflix binge of your favorite show? Let my candle scents immerse you into the scene! Not only can candles level up your fandom, but it’s self care at it’s core.

During the pandemic in 2020, I used books/comics/movies/gaming to help me manage anxiety. I cared for a toddler, worked from home, and was pregnant on top of that. I lit candles to encourage my self care and it helped me focus on the intersection between self care and fandoms! Nerdwax Candle Co. is the end result, and I’m excited to bring you these scents!

My candle creations are 100% soy sourced from the USA. I hand-weigh, pour, dye, assemble, and package each candle. Each candle and scent combination is a labor of love—a tribute to the fandoms and parts of pop culture that brought me as well as many other fans great joy.

Thank you for browsing and don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!
