Frank Henderson built the Castle in 1895 and gained riches by producing uniforms for secret societies. Our Henderson Castle scent is an intoxicating blend of Mahogany, Smoke, and Beeswax that will leave you feeling like you're not alone.

Located in Kalamazoo, Michigan on top of a hill overlooking the city and across the street from the local cemetery. Built in 1895 by Frank Henderson who owned a business making uniform regalia for secret societies.
A foreboding castle situated on top of a hill, the Queen Anne style home is out of place in the midwestern town. Currently, the Castle is a bed and breakfast with the owner, guests, and staff reporting whispers, figures, and being touched by an unseen figure. Doors and cabinets open by themselves and strange markings appear along a crossbeam, reappearing even after many renovations to remove them. There are the spirits of Frank and Mary Henderson, the castle’s original owners and the most commonly reported figures seen. There’s the spirit of Clare Burleigh, a Spanish-American War veteran who served with Henderson's son. There’s the spirit of at least one unidentified child, a little girl who is said to be the one who wrote the markings.
Even with the number of sightings, owners and staff have all reported the ghosts as being warm and friendly.

How to use
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.
