Ever wonder what your favorite fictional places and things smell like? What about your heroes ?...Ok maybe that's a bit creepy, but hey, this is a safe space for weirdos! Often we take in our fandoms with our eyes and ears. But smell?—-not the first sense to come to mind. However, smell is VERY effective in enhancing nostalgia and memory recall!
My handcrafted candles will amplify your geeky escapades! Playing D&D as a forest druid? Light up a woodsy scent to help you get into character! Feel like a movie/tv binge? Let my candle scents immerse you into the scene! Not only can candles level up your fandom, but it’s self care---something we all need, nerd and non-nerds alike!
During the pandemic in 2020, I used books/comics/movies/gaming to help me manage anxiety. I cared for a toddler, worked from home, and was pregnant on top of that. I lit candles to encourage my self care and it helped me focus on the intersection between self care and fandoms. Nerdwax Candle Co. is the end result, and I’m excited to share what I've lovingly created! My candles are 100% soy sourced from the USA. I hand-weigh, pour, dye, assemble, design, and package each candle. Each candle and scent combination is a labor of love—a tribute to the fandoms and parts of pop culture that brought me as well as many other fans great joy.
Stay nerdy, y'all!
