Small batch coconut wax candles + plantable packaging, hand-poured in Southern California.

At CANDLESSENTIALS we strive to evoke joyful moments and happy memories; arousing feelings of being in an amazing time and place, a world of no worries and delightful experiences.


When creating the line, owner Tashah Johnson was inspired by the thought of spreading light in to the lives of others. Coupled with her love of the idea of filling a space with delightful scents, Candlessentials was born. 

All CANDLESSENTIALS candles are handmade with love in the heart of Los Angeles, California without the use of animal products or additives. We use coconut wax is used in combination with high-quality fragrances infused with essential oils. Conscious effort is placed on the design elements and creation of each candle, ultimately delivering an eco-friendly enjoyable product.

Our Classic line of candles gives back to nature with our seed embedded boxes, offering not only an aesthetically pleasing experience, but also a different take on disposing of packaging.

We care about using eco-friendly packaging. We use PURE Labels for our 100% compostable/recyclable labels, made by Elevate Packaging. We love our planet and know that each sustainable packaging choice we make matters!



In an effort to provide funding to organizations doing important work in our communities, each month we will donate a percentage of sales to charities that align with our vision.

For the month of February, we will be donating a percentage of our profits to TWO organizations. With everything going on in the world it's becoming more and more difficult to choose just one org each month. February's proceeds will be contributed to: 

1. Pandemic of Love Turkey/Syria Relief
2. Mill Creek Urban Farm
