Under The Stars Candle

"Do you smell that?"

"It wasn't me."

"What a shame - it smells so good."

We won't be shy on this one: this is the best smelling candle you'll ever own.

If you don't agree, just send it back - we can never have enough around the office.


When Life Is Good, It Smells Like This.

The wind is blowing gently through the pines.

The campfire is just getting started. 

The first stars are coming out and you just witnessed a sunset so amazing you knew it wasn't even worth trying to take a picture.

We took this moment, and we turned it into a candle.

The mountains. The trees. Happiness. Fresh air, with a hint of campfire.

We're not encouraging you to stay home more often, but when you do have to be surrounded by walls instead of mountains - we made you this.



A Really Good Candle

Every candle is 100% soy wax, hand-poured right here in Colorado, scented with essential oils, with a lead-free wick and a burn time of approximately 55-65 hours.

The all-natural essential oils are what makes this candle truly special. When you smell the balsam fir, the cedar, the vetiver - you're getting the same healing benefits they provide in plant form when you take a deep breath outdoors

The scent doesn't just transport you to the outdoors, it brings the outdoors to you.

Buy a Candle Plant A Tree - Social Give Back Program

When you buy this candle, you change the world.

For every candle sold, we work with Trees For The Future to plant a tree in your honor.

Why is that so powerful? By helping small farmers and villages around the world with the planting of fruit & vegetable trees, shade trees and more, together we're going beyond basic environmental change. Your simple purchase creates a chain reaction that will feed the hungry, create small business, and generate a huge amount of social good and happiness. You get an amazing candle and create a legacy of change.

We think that's a pretty good reason to relax.

Meet The Maker:
Rachel Woolcott / Wooly Wax Candles

Wooly Wax Candles Maker - Rachel Woolcott

Handmade With Love in Colorado

Every candle is hand-poured by Rachel at her Wooly Wax Candles studio right down the road from Trek Light HQ in Denver, CO. 

When we decided we wanted to make a candle we didn't just say "Hey Rachel, we want a candle that feels like camping!" Well, actually we did, but then she told us that it didn't work that way - we were going to come down to the studio and create it with her. 

So we did, and it was awesome.

One smell at a time, we worked our way through bottle after bottle of essential oils (hmmm...Himalayan Cedar or Atlas Cedar? Bergamot or Lemon?) to find the perfect combination.  And we found it. Thanks Rachel!

This is my 2nd candle and I love it. I burn it every night when I'm cooking dinner. Recommended highly for a nice woodsy smell.

My Favorite Candle

This is my 3rd candle from Trek Light - can't get enough of this scent :) especially with fall around the corner!

Thanks for the support, Kristen! :)
My first Candle!

My name is Clara, I'm almost 9 months old and can't even talk yet! But if I could, my review would say something like this: This thing is CRAZY!!! I can't even open it, maybe it doesn't open I don't know, but there is something in there that smells absolutely BONKERS!! I love drooling on this thing, big time. It never complains when I hit it against things or throw it at my brother. My brother complains though. Best part is it also rolls all over the floor! Not sure why that isn't advertised. You guys might want to reconsider how you advertise that...I overheard my parents saying that you can light it on fire and it smells even better-not even sure how that is even possible. By the way, what is fire? Bottom line, BEST CANDLE EVER!!! If you haven't gotten one for you or for your infant, you're missing out, their missing out, no winners in that situation. Be a winner, Get the candle. If not for you, for your children, or perhaps your children's children. You get it, so get it. Time for a nap, gotta go.

Thanks for the epic review Clara! We knew the candle was awesome, but this type of rigorous testing really seals the deal for us!
Five stars!

Great candle and an awesome company. I love that a tree is planted with every purchase.
