Our Story


Welcome and thank you for checking out Jabberwocky Candles.  We're based out of a small town in Pennsylvania with the funny name of Frackville.  
Welcome to Frackille, PA!
Every year when it starts to get cold, people from this area make a moonshine drink called Boilo (Pronounced Boil-o.)  It smells so good, that I decided that it must be made into a candle.  You can see learn more about it here.
Boilo candle with ingredients.  Four queens whiskey, oranges, lemon, cinnamon, honey, star anise, nutmeg, and cloves.
It took me 4 years to get the candle just right. In December of 2016, the local grocery store Boyer's Markets started selling the Boilo scented candle.  Jabberwocky Candles was featured in the local newspaper and a flood of people came rushing to the store to get their candles.  To prevent people from fighting over the last few candles, security personnel guarded the shelves.  (I wish I was joking.)
Today, Jabberwocky Candles is carried in a growing number of stores and right here on this site.  In order to meet the growing demand, I've partnered with one of the premier candle makers in the world to make my candles even better and expand output.  
With Jabberwocky Candles you can be confident that you're getting a clean burning candle, with a great scent throw, and at a great price.  As you fill your home with our festive fragrances, you're helping grow a small business and participate in a small town's story.
