Rustic Fandom Inspired Candles & Products Handcrafted in Washington

INSPIRATION:
Ever wonder what locations from your favorite fandom smell like? I took the liberty of answering that question for you - in the form of hand-poured, eco-friendly, clean burning, phthalate free, natural soy candles, no less!

PROCESS:
All Joystick Candles are hand-poured by me, in a small home studio in Oregon City, OR. First, 100% natural soy wax flakes are measured by weight, then slowly melted in a double boiler. When it reaches the perfect temperature, high-quality, phthalate-free fragrance oil blends are added. Next, the fragrance-infused wax cools slightly before being carefully hand-poured into reusable containers. Lastly, they are cured at room temperature for 24+ hours to ensure each candle has even hardening of the wax and full-fragrance hot/cold throws.

MISSION:
My goal is to give you the finest quality, natural, phthalate-free candles in luxuriously inspired fragrances, at affordable prices. I am also very eco-conscious, and prefer to use recyclable and reusable elements in as many natural materials as possible, while still beautifully presenting the JoystickCandleCo brand to my customers; from the outside of the recycled shipping box, to the reusable packaging, to the product itself.

MY BACKSTORY:
If you follow Myers-Briggs personality types, I am an INFP. A creative. A dreamer. My personality requires me to "create" on a regular basis, and when that is happening, I am immensely happy.

I've spent the last six years owning and operating my own small business as a portrait photographer. In between that, I also write, draw, make digital art, and care for my cat, Cobalt. I am also an enormous fangirl! From Nintendo and other video games, to animals and dinosaurs, I have many quirky loves, and I am proud of them. If you have a request for a certain scent or product, let me know and let's see if we can work something out together!
