The Winchester Mystery House Candle
A true mystery in the fact that Sarah Winchester was so reclusive, that we know very little about her life. We do know she spent 36 years building and rebuilding the same home in California. The odd features of the house, combined with her reclusive nature, and her affinity for all-black garments, led many in town to speculate and rumors grew. She practiced seances and many visitors and guides have had unexplained experiences while visiting the house. Scents of Dried Florals, Incense, and Redwood will transport you to Sarah's séance room, where spirits await.

Located in San Jose, California, The Winchester Mystery House was once the personal residence of Sarah Lockwood Pardee Winchester, the widow of William Wirt Winchester and heiress to a large portion of the Winchester® Repeating Arms fortune.
The home was under construction from 1886 to 1922 and included many modern features, and some odd features, like stairs to nowhere, windows overlooking other rooms, and doors with a 3 story drop allegedly, to appease spirits— specifically those who had fallen to the famous Winchester rifle.
A number of employees—and a few visitors—claim to have crossed paths with “Clyde,” a mustached man sometimes seen pushing a wheelbarrow in the basement, or trying to repair the fireplace in the Ballroom. Shadow figures have been seen in the basement, footsteps and doors closing in areas off limits to visitors, even Sarah herself has been seen, with most sightings in her séance room.

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.
