About Us

My name is Elizabeth, and I create colorful candles and wax melts for a happy home!


I didn't just "find" Happy Moon Candles - it found ME when I was searching for a creative outlet at a time in my life when I needed it most. I was struggling with depression and anxiety at the time and it was recommended to me by a therapist to find a new hobby. I wasn’t sure what that hobby would be, but I knew one thing: I have always loved candles. There was always something about candles that calmed me and made me feel...happy. While smelling candles in a store with my husband, he asked, “What if you tried to make candles?"

Intimidated by the thought but also excited by the prospect, I spent months researching everything I could on the subject: different types of waxes, fragrance oils, temperatures, pouring guidelines, cooling, curing, and everything in between. I was like a scientist in a lab, mixing fragrance oils together and coming up with my own unique candle scents! Before long, Happy Moon Candles was born out of love for the craft of candle making and the happiness it has brought to my life!

I strive to create an immersive experience for my customers. Colors, fragrances, and scent names are chosen with purpose: to create candles and wax melts inspired from the things in life that bring us joy! Whether that's cuddling with your cat (My Cat Is My Child), walking your dog (My Dog Is My Child), or reading your favorite book (Tea & A Good Book), I offer 21 happy scents to make you smile! Every candle is handmade with soy blend wax and hand poured by me in small batches in Federal Way, Washington.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines happiness as “a state of well-being and contentment.” I hope that by lighting one of our candles that we spark a little happiness in your day!

Thank you for your support,

Elizabeth, Creator & Founder of Happy Moon Candles
