Perched on the rugged coastline, the St. Augustine Lighthouse casts a looming shadow over turbulent waters below. On moonlit nights, visitors claim to hear the phantom footsteps of long-deceased keepers and the melancholic cries of shipwrecked spirits, forever trapped between the land and sea. Scents of Orange Blossom, Driftwood, and Sea Salt to guide them home.

Each candle comes with a QR code to scan to learn about the haunted history!

Haunted History

Perhaps the most well-known spirits reported at the St. Augustine Lighthouse are those of Eliza and Mary Pittee, daughters of Hezekiah Pittee, a superintendent overseeing lighthouse construction in the late 1800s. In a tragic accident, the two girls drowned when the cart they were playing in broke loose and slid into the ocean.

Guests and staff have reported hearing unexplained sounds of children's laughter echoing through the lighthouse, and some claim to have seen the spectral figures of two little girls playing on the lighthouse grounds. 

One of the earliest keepers of the original lighthouse (predecessor to the current one) was Joseph Andreu, who met an untimely death while painting the tower. He fell from a great height and died upon impact, leaving his bereft wife, Maria Mestre de los Dolores Andreu, to take over as the official keeper — one of the first women to serve in such a role in American history.

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.
