Hi there!

Welcome to Homebody Candle Co -

an indie candle + perfume-based brand you can feel good about. Handcrafted just for you, woman-owned + made with ingredients you can pronounce, because treating yourself should be fun + easy.

I'm so glad you're here!

Hi! I'm Elle - big-time dog lover, avid coffee inhaler + the hands behind the scenes here!

I started Homebody Candle Co. in 2015 as a hobby escape from a mentally draining + unfulfilling career in fashion management. It's grown to be so much more than that over the years + I am so thankful for all your love + support!

I'm always up for a chat! If you ever have questions or just want to virtually hang out, you can reach out to me at hello@homebodycandleco.com or join my text group here! 

your go-to shop

Everything is thought up, tested, made, cooled, cleaned, labeled + packed by me in my home studio!

We moved from our small apartment - where I was working out of a tiny spare bedroom! - into our new home in March of 2021.

For years, I'd worked out of spare closets, on kitchen counters + on folding tables in our apartments. Having an entire basement studio to expand in has been monumental to my business mindset and growth process!

I'm still based out of Chicago + love every second of it. I don't currently have a storefront, but would love to have one some day! For now, you can shop with me online or at any of our stockists across the country!

we're into the good stuff

I believe in being as transparent + honest as possible about what goes into our products - which is why you can always count on our ingredients list!

You can feel good about using any Homebody Candle Co. products because each product has ingredients listed on the product page.
