Inside Wicks and Wax

Unmatched Artisanship

It’s no secret that, as humans, our sense of smell is inextricably linked to our centers of emotion, nostalgia, and wellness. Thus, every aroma designed at Wicks and Wax is inspired by moving experiences, from childhood memories to travel with loved ones.
At Wicks and Wax, we specialize in creating unique and luxurious scented candles. Each candle is carefully crafted using the finest ingredients and the most intricate scents.

Our goal is to create something that brings a sense of warmth and comfort to wherever you light it.We understand that each candle carries with it a special scent that can evoke memories and feelings. That’s why we work hard to make sure each of our candles has its own story and unique scent. With Wicks and Wax, you can find the perfect scent to remind you of home.

Candle Magic

Light up your life with Wicks and Wax. Our candles are made with either coconut wax or soy for a beautiful and sustainable burn. Coconut wax has a strong hot and cold throw, meaning the aroma of our candles will fill your home even when they're not lit.

Coconut Beauty Products

Coconut wax


 Our coconut wax is a popular option due to its natural, sustainable properties. Unlike other waxes, coconut wax turns a pure white when cooled, making it ideal for candles with a bright, clean look. Additionally, this wax is much softer than other types, and has an extended burn time. Shop our selection of coconut wax candles today for an eco-friendly and long-lasting illumination.

Pouring Candle Wax

Soy Wax

Soy wax is the classic choice for candle making. Soy candles have a lower melting point compared to other waxes, which helps the essential oils to release their scent more easily. However, soy wax can not hold as much scent as other waxes. This makes it a good choice for people who don't like strong scents.

Woman-run business

My name is Kara McKinley. I just recently graduated from Paul Smith's College in the Adirondacks. I earned my bachelor's degree in Hotel, Resort, and Tourism Management with a minor in Entrepreneurial Business. 

I have traveled all over the world. I have seen, heard, smelled, and tasted everything from clean resort room smells in the Dominican Republic, to pizza in the foothills of the Dolomites in Italy. New experiences and scents are fun.

But you know that feeling when you are going on a vacation and you are heading home? Being gone for a week and then opening your front door to that "home" scent...

I have strived to create that smell for you. 

Let us be a part of your home.
