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!

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!
