Alluring & Therapeutic Candles

RELAX with Wax

Mermaid Wicks Logo

Candles are scientifically proven to soothe us. The gentle, mesmerizing quality of their light makes them a perfect aid for any relaxation routine. Melts takes the science of candles one step further though; creating scented products proven to transform your mood.

It’s a candle’s flame that helps to soothe our soul – reducing stress and increasing self-awareness. The soft illumination helps us to calm down and even achieve a meditative state.

But how does a candle flame help to calm us down and relax our minds?

The low light that comes from a candle is captured by your sight and sent straight to your brain for processing. Because of our associations with candlelight, the body begins to relax – helping how we feel emotionally and physically.

Some of the perks of feeling more relaxed include more energy, better sleep, enhanced immunity, less pain and a more pleasant personality.

​A scented candle offers additional benefits – reaching yet another one of our senses, smell. We all have our trigger scents; scents that make us feel good and scents that remind us of unpleasant or unhappy times. By choosing a scent we find relaxing, or a scent known for its calming properties, you can enhance your candlelight experience.

100% Phthalate Free


Phthalates, or phthalate esters, are esters of Phthalic acid. They are used to dissolve raw materials when making fragrance oils. They have been used for many decades in a myriad of pharmaceuticals, household and industrial products. Recently, there have been concerns that high levels of Phthalates can cause a host of health issues. It is not clear whether the levels that people encounter cause adverse effects, but it is clear to us that products would be better if they didn’t pose any such risks.

While both the U.S. and Europe have imposed laws against Phthalates in children’s toys, (since they are put in the mouth) there are no rules against Phthalates in candles. Nevertheless, Mermaid Wicks does not use Phthalates from any product or products that still contains them. All of our oils are Phthalate free. 

Never Tested on Animals

 Our suppliers never test on animals and support cruelty-free alternatives to all animal testing.

Fragrance oils are composed of natural and synthetic ingredients. To comply with global and legislative requirements, these base chemical compounds may have been tested on animals at some point in their history. However, none of our finished products, including fragrance oils, are tested on animals by us or our suppliers.

About Us

Our Story

Our story began from an appreciation of candles, beautiful smells, and a wonderment of mythical creatures known as Mermaids. The word mermaid is a compound of the Old English mere (sea), and maid (a girl or young woman). The equivalent term in Old English was merewif. They are conventionally depicted as beautiful with long flowing hair. They are sometimes equated with the sirens of Greek mythology (especially the Odyssey), half-bird femmes fatales whose enchanting voices would lure soon-to-be-shipwrecked sailors to nearby rocks, sandbars or shoals. A Gossip is a common term for a group of Mermaids.

We are a small, Smithfield, VA based producer of hand poured, fragranced, and labeled, wood wick candles. 

Our owners have a passion for the nautical life, enjoy time on their sailboat, and time with family and friends. They are committed to delivering only the best to their customers.


Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Luke 6:31

Our Mission

Our mission is to create quality hand poured Woodwick Candles & Melts, bringing alluring and therapeutic scents at affordable prices to your home, office or place of solace.
