About StarfieldCandleCo

Sales 2,433
On Etsy since 2019

Hello, and welcome!

Hi, I'm Miko!
Welcome to the Starfield Candle Company Etsy shop.

I started Starfield Candle Company in 2019 after working 9 years in media and advertising. I struggled the last few years to find my happiness, and was desperately looking for a challenge to give me a new sense of fulfillment.

Entrepreneurship was something I only ever dreamt of, but the universe guided me to this path and gave me the little push I needed to open up this candle shop.

I've always loved crafting and candle making and decorating!

I love decorating my home and making it a nice, cozy place to be all year round. I love arranging the house with soft colors and florals during spring. And then, I count down to my favorite season, fall, when it's time for pine cones and pumpkin decor and warm colors. And when winter comes around, the house is festive with holiday decor and twinkling lights, and the air smells so sweet of cinnamon and spice.

For me, no matter what time of year, candles are the perfect little accessories to brighten up the house.

They add so much to a mantle or a side table. I love everything from the tranquil mood, to the beautiful scents that fill the air.


Starfield is a translation of my maiden name (now middle name), Hoshino.
星 (hoshi) meaning "star", and 野 (no) meaning "field".

​It really is a personal passion project, and I’ve put my heart and soul into this.
I'm inspired by the idea of living your dream, to living your best life by doing what you love, and what makes your happy.

What an exciting journey it has been to bring this vision and dream to life. I'm so excited to be sharing this with you.

​Thanks in advance for supporting small businesses like mine.

Sending you all nothing but love and good vibes.

Happy lighting!

With Love,
Miko

Frequently asked questions

Missing Orders & Package Theft

Once an order has been shipped and and marked delivered via USPS tracking number, it is out of our hands. Delivered, but missing/stolen packages will not be replaced at our expense.

If a package goes missing:
1) Please contact your local post office.
2) Please file a missing mail claim with USPS.
3) Check with your neighbors to see if they have your package by mistake.

What kind of wax do you use for your candles?

All of our candles are made using a 100% natural soy wax blend -non-toxic, biodegradable, all natural soy wax made from sustainably sourced US grown soybeans.

Are candles are Vegan + Kosher.

What are the small, white crystals on my candles?

Vegetable waxes like soy wax mixed with oils naturally form frosting, especially when subjected to temperature fluctuations. The crystals form due to polymorphism – a condition where crystals form as the soy wax cools and hardens. It looks like small, white, sometimes grainy crystals on the top or side of the candle.

We only use 100% natural soy wax blend (vegan + kosher) to create our candles, and without the use of additional additives, frosting may develop over time.

Rest assured, it is cosmetic and won’t impact the performance of your candles. We do whatever we can to minimize the visual imperfections during production, but please keep in mind frosting is a natural effect of soy wax and will likely develop over time.

Best Practices for Candle Burning

1. Burn your candle for a few hours when first lighting it. Allowing the top layer of wax to fully melt will ensure that your candle will burn evenly for the next lighting. If your candle doesn't burn all the way to the edge for the first burn, it will begin to tunnel and won't burn evenly next time (and future lightings).

2. Trim your wick to 1/4" before each lighting. The longer the wick, the quicker your candle will burn, so trimming it will make it last longer.

3. Keep the lid on the jars when not in use to prevent dust from settling on the candle. If it does collect dust, you can use a wet cotton pad to remove the dust.

4. We recommend burning the candle for no more than 4 hours at a time. Trim the wick before the next lighting.
