Haunted History

Located in Harvey, North Dakota, the Harvey Public Library was once the scene of a horrible murder. 

In 1931 Sophia Eberlein-Bentz and her husband Jacob Bentz lived in a house where the library now stands. On October 2, 1931 Jacob bludgeoned Sophia to death while she slept. He did his best to clean up the scene of the crime and tried to make Sophie's death look like a car accident. However, when Sophia's daughter Lillian came home for the funeral, she found blood in the house and reported her findings to the police. Bentz admitted the crime during the investigation and was sentenced to life in prison. In 1990 the Harvey Public Library opened on the site of the Bentz former house, with the libarabins office built right where the bedroom once stood. Staff and visitors report flickering lights, missing objects, cold spots, and strange computer glitches. The ghost, they say, is Sophie. And coincidentally, the library opened on the anniversary of Sophie’s funeral.

All candles are made with 100% domestically-grown soy wax, fragrance oils, and organic cotton-core wicks. The fragrances we use are paraben-free, phthalate-free, and are never tested on animals.

How to use

Following Candle Care helps to ensure product quality + longevity. We highly recommend following each of the following steps:

Trim your candle's wick to 1/4" before each lighting or once your candle has cooled.

Never attempt to trim a burning candle.

Discard the snipped portion in the trash; never leave wick trimmings in your candle jar.

The wick should always remain centered and away from the sides of the vessel.

Allow the wax to melt to the edges of the jar during each burn to prevent tunneling.


Safety first - because candles contain a small flame, we encourage following these rules:

Never leave a candle burning unattended, near a draft, or in reach of children or pets.

Don't burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.

Stop burning your candle when only 1/4" of wax remains.

Do not pick up a burning candle or immediately after it's been blown out.

Protect the surface underneath the candle no matter the material.
