Something Rad Candle Co.

I know for many in the Bookstagram community, we cannot have books without candles! There is just something about a beautiful, sparkly candle adorning your bookshelves that we can’t get enough of.

Today I’m super excited to be bringing you some amazing candles from Something Rad Candle Co.

The four candles pictured are the “Wizarding Houses” created for all HP fans! These candles are 16oz soy candles with wooden wicks in glass jars with tin lids. Each candle comes with burning instructions stickers on the bottom.


“House of the Lion”

Cranberry & Apple & Spice candle that is red with gold glitter.


“House of the Snake”

Peppermint & Eucalyptus candle that is green with silver glitter.


“House of the Badger”

Butterscotch & Vanilla Cream candle that is golden yellow with black glitter.


“House of the Eagle”

Blue Spruce & Bayberry candle that is blue with rose gold glitter.

Each of these candles smells amazing and I personally do not burn my fandom candles – they are too pretty for that!

Meet Luke


A little bit about me. I grew up in Utah, and started doing musical theater when I was in high school. I started pursuing a career in theater, and after a decade of doing shows on cruise ships, national tours, and regional theater all over the country, I’ve finally put down roots in beautiful Laguna Hills, California with my fiancé JD.

As a child of the 90’s, I have such fond memories of that era of pop culture. Saturday morning cartoons, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Disney Channel, etc. You name it, I watched it. I feel like a part of me never fully grew out of it, because I still get warm and fuzzy inside watching reruns of my favorite shows. Mix all of that in with my intense love of candles, and voila! Something Rad was born… With Something Rad, I’ve taken my childhood heroes and my grown up creativity and “morphed” them into something truly unique; nostalgia-inspired candle creations for the young at heart.Our company started as many small businesses do; in the kitchen! My fiancé encouraged me to create something after I lost my job last March due to the pandemic. I started with cheap, store-bought ingredients, but quickly upgraded to high quality professional ingredients. We use a unique blend of natural soy wax and paraffin wax, which provides the best possible fragrance throw of any candle on the market. Our fragrance oils all contain natural essential oils and are ALWAYS phthalate-free. We finish off each candle with a crackling wooden wick to complete the Something Rad experience. It’s been such an exciting ride to start a business, and we are so excited to see where this adventure takes us next!
