Every Rose Has it's Thorns (Except This One)

A rose scented candle is something that BCC fans request quite often, but it's only something that makes it's way into the shop once a year! Lucky for you rose fans, now is that time!  Brennan Candle Co fan Severina left our rose candle, First Date Jitters, a 5 star review! Here's what she had to say: A calming scent to combat any jitters!

Galentine's Day Gift Guide

Don’t forget your pals this February! What’s better than a candle for a Galentine’s Day gift?! Give the Valentine's Day Duo to one lucky gal pal, or split it between your two besties! Two candles, one discounted price! Looking to splurge a bit? Gift them our Candle of the Month Club (available in 3 month, 6 month or 12 month subscriptions). Want a year-round scent instead?

Can You Reuse Your Candle Jars?

There’s a question we get a lot, and it’s one you may have asked or thought yourself….does Brennan Candle Co. refill candles? Unfortunately, the answer is no. But stick with me to learn why! A little backstory When I first dreamt up Brennan Candle Co, I desperately wanted to have a refill program. It seems like an amazing way to be more sustainable, right? Unfortunately it’s not that simple. The short version is: when glass gets hot, it can degrade in quality. I can’t confidently repour a candle in a used jar and sell it to a customer because I don’t know how safe it will be. The last thing I want is to give you a product that might...
