We teamed up with our friends Beyond The Interview to create the first-ever Reading Candle, a limited-edition scented coconut wax product designed to arm the reader with scents powerful enough to tackle the toughest of syntax, from Tolstoy to Twilight.
The candle’s three scents—Sandalwood, Sea Salt, and Orchid—activate the reader’s literary senses by releasing an aromatherapy blend, designed to increase focus and relieve anxiety, making it a perfect addition to any bibliophile’s library.

A trace of sandalwood in the Reading Candle exists not just for its sylvan, page-like scent but also for therapeutic properties—the oil has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine and Buddhist meditation to maintain a person’s calm alertness. The scent of sandalwood produces an atmosphere redolent of attentiveness and relaxation—a reader’s ideal condition.
The dominant aroma of the Reading Candle calls forth a sun-bathed room, filled with exotic and fragrant orchids. Demure and steadfast like a Jane Austen novel, its fragrance settles you in lush Victorian gardens and the era’s famed orchidelirium, a nineteenth-century flower craze that still exists today.
Finally, notes of sea salt contrast with the heavier, sweeter scents of the Reading Candle. Where the poetic elements of orchids border on feminine, sea salt and its associations in nautical fiction conjure marlin fishing with Hemingway, and Captain Ahab’s revenge against the great white whale.

Make sure to burn your candle for 2-4 hours at a time. This will allow the wax to evenly distribute across the top of the candle, instead of pooling around the wick and tunneling. Allowing a full melt pool will additionally allow the candles full scent to fill the room!

Each candle is hand poured into a 8oz glass jar and has a white metal lid.

Be sure to trim your wick to 1/4 before lighting your candle. Keep your candle out of direct sunlight, otherwise discoloration can occur.

We use a all natural eco-friendly coconut wax and high quality fragrance oils. Coconut wax is the most sustainable of all the waxes (Beeswax, Paraffin, Soy and Palm). It produces the cleanest and safest burn against all other waxes. Coconut wax is known for it's slow burn, silky feel, and produces less soot. It is more eco-friendly to harvest, and can hold a higher fragrance concentration. Our wicks are made from 100% natural cotton and are lead-free.
