Announcement   Welcome! Immerse yourself in a good book with 100% natural soy candles tailored to smell like your favorite characters and places! As an author and fellow bookworm, I love letting my imagination run wild. When possible, I use the actual book descriptions for my scent combinations, but if there is no exact description then I put my creativity to work! I only make candles for books that I have personally read, so I am always adding new products!


The Bookish Flame, established in 2016, is home to several ORIGINAL bookish candles including:

**Saul (A Million Junes) which was lauded on Instagram by author Emily Henry herself
**The HP HouseBlends in SIX different blends (each with a scent taken from the original house candles line) complete with a rearranged Sorting Song penned by owner/author Jennifer L. Kelly
**Sturmhond (Siege & Storm), everyone's favorite privateer smelling of sea mist, driftwood, and sunshine breezes

***CURRENT TURNAROUND TIME: 5-7 days for in stock items! Approximately4-6 weeks for all candle boxes which are pre-order!***

USA MADE: I create my candles in small, hand-poured batches of 2-4 candles at a time using high quality fragrance oils (phthalate-free when possible) and 100% natural soy wax from a supplier in Georgia. I primarily use two other suppliers. One located here in Ohio, about 90 minutes from Cleveland, the other located in North Carolina. My soy wax is clean burning and 100% natural with no additives, so cracking, dipping, puncturing, and frosting is common. However, this is only cosmetic in nature and not a need for concern.

More about the wax I use:

100% US Non-GMO Soy-Based Wax
All-Natural
Certified Kosher
Vegan Certified
Environmental Working Group Hazard Rating: 1 on a scale of 1-10 (for Hydrogenated Vegetable Glycerides)
Renewable Vegetable Sources
Cleans up easily with soap and water

For the best experience, be sure not to trim the wick on the first burn and to allow the candle to form an even pool of wax to the edges before extinguishing. For a 4 oz candle this is about 2-3 hours. Keep your wick trimmed to 1/4". Common sense warning: remember to burn candles in an open area and do not leave burning candles unattended.

I am happy to work with book subscription boxes!! :) Please contact me via conversations to discuss wholesale pricing.

About

Fandom & Book Boyfriend Soy Candles

My love for all things bookish combined with a vivid imagination resulted in The Bookish Flame. The name is a spin on the book boyfriend--a term for those of us in love with our fictional characters! Since we can't make them come to life (or can we...) burn a candle in their honor and envelope your home in the scent of your favorite characters and places!
