About Us

At MoonGeek Candle Co., we’re passionate about a few things: great stories, geek culture, and candles! Every candle is hand-poured in small batches and scented with fragrances designed to remind you of your favorite geeky things.

MoonGeek Candle Co. is a family-owned business run by a slightly-crazy writer (Kyra) with occasional help from her geeky gamer friends (Mike and Justin) and her two fantastically nerdy little girls. We first started crafting candles in 2017. Most were hoarded to feed our ever-growing addiction to fragrances, but a few managed to survive long enough to become holiday gifts or birthday presents. Most involved books or natural scents. Our home almost always smelled like trees or an old stack of books.

As fate would have it, candle making became a great way to promote a love of reading within the children. It also provided a fun opportunity to work on measuring and math skills, and an important exercise in patience. Soon, we set aside a day every week to pour a new batch.

By 2019, several of the people we gifted candles to reached out to ask if they could purchase another. A few requested custom scents that reminded them of their favorite stories or games. After a few dozen custom-blended geeky orders, the idea for MoonGeek was born.

Every batch of candles we pour at MoonGeek is special to us. We adore sharing our love of literature and geek culture with others, and there’s nothing we enjoy more than creating eco-friendly candles that create an awesome atmosphere.

Our current available lines include our Bookish Candle Collection and our Zodiac Collection. We have several new geeky candle collections planned for 2021, including our fantasy collection, tarot-inspired candle collection, and video game collection. We release at least one new scent a month, and we're always experimenting with ways to spice up your candle stash.

We're committed to crafting and packaging our candles responsibly. MoonGeek candles are made from vegan coconut wax and soybeans grown in the United States, poured into recyclable jars with natural cotton or wooden wicks. We package our orders using biodegradable cornstarch packing peanuts scented with essential oils. Our products are all clean-burning and phthalate-free to provide the safest and best possible experience. If you have any other questions or concerns about our products, we're happy to help! Feel free to contact us at any time with questions or feedback. We ♥ hearing from you!
