Creepy Cozy Candles from a Horror Nerd

Hello and welcome to my Etsy shop! Jillian here - English adjunct by day, horror fiend by night, and inspired candle maker in between 🕯

*** To check out my full catalog, visit TheSmellofFear.com! ***

My candles are made with the premium natural wax for candles, which is a coconut-soy wax blend. The best attributes of both types of wax are featured in this way with coconut being predominant in the blend. I use coconut wax from organic, renewable, and pesticide free sources & truly feel that it is the superior choice for a great smelling, long lasting candle. No coconut scent is imparted into the wax so my sinister scent blends really shine in these terrifyingly terrific candles.

Some of the scent blends are my personal creations while some are preexisting from some amazing fragrance oil companies but all are directly inspired by and pulled from details in the stories that I cherish. For example, my Tell-Tale Heart smells like the ominous oak floorboards of the story with just a hint of tobacco. History is another love of mine & will sometimes use that as a scent inspiration. For example my Annabel Lee takes its cues from the salty sea air that is part of the tragic tale but has the scent of bergamot, which was a popular lady's perfume in Poe's day. No matter the backstory, all of the fragrances I use are as clean as possible and always phthalate free.

All of my candles are hand poured in small batches to ensure that each candle is of the highest quality.

Jars are clear or colored glass. Lids are black metal or cork.

Wicks are cotton core with a natural wax coating.

I value sustainability so all materials, from candle supplies to packaging, are as recycled, recyclable, sustainable, or biodegradable as possible.

Give one of these unique creations a try but I must warn you: they will be habit forming! 💀🕯💀

    Horror stories have always been a passion of mine and it has been fun translating them in to a scented wax medium! Fully in the gig economy, I am also an adjunct lecturer and write when I can. I love what I do & do what I love!
