Our goal is simple; luxury candles for hard working people. Our love of candles and aromatherapy began in the spring of 2017. In preparation for dealing with the natural anxiety associated with starting graduate school, we researched effective ways to promote calmness and relaxation. We found a combination of visual, auditory, and olfactory stimulation resulted in the highest degree of relaxation and bliss – and so we created an aesthetically appealing and highly fragrant essential oil candle, complete with a crackling wooden wick.

Immerse yourself in 12 scents thoughtfully crafted to satisfy your aromatherapeutic needs by Nerd Hero Candles. The Nerd Hero custom blend candles features: Nightcap, Cigar Lounge, Date Night, Power Trip,  and Magic Hour,  Presented in black tumbler glasses and accompanied by exquisite Nerd Hero logo, each candle is FSC certified 100% vegan and eco-friendly. Enjoy the 50 hours of burn time. Each candle is created in micro batches of no more than five by our hands.



At Nerd Hero every candle tells a story, igniting your senses and transporting you to a world of sophistication and elegance.
