On Etsy since 2016

Candles that won't bore you to death!

Registered Nurse by day, reclusive candle lady by night; Mel started Drop Dead Candles in 2016 as a happy accident when she began creating her own molds and candles as a "just-for-fun" hobby. The hobby quickly developed into a small business as Mel's friends and family began hounding her to create weird candles for them. Each candle is handmade under feline supervision in Oshawa, Ontario and probably contains a least a little bit of cat hair.

Frequently asked questions

Please email Mel at dropdeadcandles@gmail.com.

Why does my candle look dusty/frosty?

This naturally occurs over time as the wax crystalizes and it's nothing to fret about. If you'd like you can reduce the "dustiness" of the surface by using a blow dryer on your candle to melt it a bit (do it on the slowest heat setting and go verrryyyyy carefully as to not melt your candle into a puddle. You can also warm your hands by rubbing them together and make a wiping motion with your hands/thumbs - you will melt the wax a teeny bit and improve the colour.

My candle arrived damaged/broken etc etc :(

UGH, BUMMER. Please contact us ASAP so we can resolve the issue by either send you a new candle/item or offer you a refund. Thank goodness for postal insurance!
