Stone Candles un-darkens corners inside residential caves with the Fresh by Stone series ($9.99+) of quality handmade candles crafted with natural wax and essential oils. These energy-efficient light sources utilize lead-free cotton wicks to fill rooms with 24 different fragrances including lavender, green tea and fig, and ginger peach. Meanwhile, oil-burning fuel cells inside the Lit by Stone series ($7.99+) are enclosed inside of decorative glass-lined wax containers to allow for a brighter flame and prevent melting or impromptu birthday serenading. Stone Candles also carries attractive candle holders and guests of the Culver City candle factory can take advantage of the custom container-filling option, which allows customers to fill a personal container with their own choice of wax, fragrance, and color.
Since lighting its first candlewicks in Berkeley in the 1960s, Stone Candles has crafted a colorful array of bright-hued and delicately scented candles. In the shop’s new Santa Monica location, Stone’s father-son team imbues candle pillars and wax-free luminaries, with scents ranging from cucumber-melon and red currant to jasmine and vanilla. Here, you can find candles ranging in size from hefty 6-by-12 inches to petite 3-by-3’s, an ideal size for illuminating one’s miniature model of Thomas Edison’s house.
The shop’s special environmentally sustainable COCO candle collection comes in pleasant scents such as gardenia, green tea and fig, and lavender. Pick up one of the shop’s candle holders, hewn from slices of ebony wood or slices of agate, to help display individual candles.
