The Story of Mythologie Candles

Candles are a huge passion of mine. But not just candles... my real passion is creating scents that match a magical theme or scene, and bringing imagination into reality!

I'm first a singer/songwriter, and I create Celtic folk music, and this all began when I released a medieval-fantasy winter album called Ancient Winter.

I wanted to create a truly immersive listening experience, and the idea of combining a scent with music popped into my head. I thought, "that would be a really cool multi-sensory experience!"

So I went to work in my kitchen. For about a month, my kitchen looked like a candle laboratory had exploded, there was stuff everywhere!

This photo below wasn't even that bad, there was a lot more stuff all over my house. It practically covered every surface as I delved into the world of candle making.

I tested many types of wax, vessels, fragrance oils, and wicks!


Me in the kitchen with my three girls (I also have 2 boys!), testing, testing, testing!



The first ever collection, 'Ancient Winter' to match my album!



After my album launch, I had fallen in love with creating fantasy-inspired candles and I realized this was something... special. That's when I decided to launch Mythologie Candles as it's own brand.

Early in 2020, we launched a little pre-order test to see if anyone would be interested in our Lord of the Rings inspired collection.

The feedback was so overwhelming and we knew we had something special, so we proceeded with BIG PLANS.



We officially launched in March of 2020 -- Yes -- THAT month! 😳

We didn't know what would happen or how we would be affected - and we certainly were!

Right out of the gate, we simultaneously experienced this electrifying response to our candles AND we had to deal with major supply chain issues because of the-thing-that-shall-not-be-named. 😅 We had JUST moved into a brand new 2500 sqft warehouse as well, yes, we went from my kitchen to a big warehouse!

Based on that feedback, I knew in my soul Mythologie Candles would become a household name for all fantasy lovers.

Despite those huge obstacles, we persevered and our amazing, supportive customers were incredibly understanding and patient! Some even waited up to six weeks to receive those first candles -- (if that was you - God bless you!).

After that very trying time, we were able to hire and produce our fantasy candles at record speed!

We now currently make several thousand candles every day! 🔥


Here's just a few of our candle-making elves!


There's so much more to the story, but as this is getting a little long, I'll save some of the adventures for another time.

I just have to say... you are awesome if you're still reading this! Your love of fantasy and desire to make your home a castle is the reason why we do this!

P.S. If you haven't done so yet, we have a private Facebook group to discuss the candles, new ideas, etc!We'd love to have you!

Love that you took the time to share your story! I also love that you use sensory to connect to a time frame & fantasy. I came across your candles on FB and just placed my first order, and looking forward to them arriving. I am quit sure (based on awesome reviews) I will be a customer for life :)

I heard about your shop on Critical Role. I’ve recently started to get into DMing a few one shots with my D&D group and thought this would be such a fun way to further the immersion into our games. I don’t like heavy flowery candles, plus I’m picky about what candles I burn around my pets. I’m excited to try these definitely unique scents not only for my D&D games but also for movies or just relaxing and feel good they are pet safe. Thank you!

I am beyond excited to have found your candles! I ordered a sample pack and the Tudor Library immediately and can’t wait to get them! I love these types of scents and they are not easy to find … I just don’t like the heavy floral scents that are typical.
Also, could not agree more with the comment from Tracey above about a line of candles inspired by Outlander. If you go that route, be ready to double production!! 😂
I’m going to check out your music too!
Thanks for your innovation and romantic heart! ❤️

I applaud you for the risks you took and the determination you obviously had to start this business at probably the worst possible time in recent memory. I am a first-time buyer (of a sizable order, LOL) but I look forward to a long customer relationship with you. I’m a 67-year old graphic artist and book illustrator and have had a lifelong fascination with all things historical, medieval and old world. Thank you again for your products and I’m looking forward to enjoying them the rest of my life.

I really like the thought around this, I can’t wait to receive my first order. I do have problems with strong scented candles but heard a lot of great comments about how good these were and am curious to how I may react. Also, one thing you might consider since you ate a celtic artist is something thst may center around Highlander / Outlander (Scotland) themed. I think it may bring a whole rush of history loving people to the forum! 😊
