Beyond The Interview teamed up with candlemakers Jade And Juniper Goods to create the first-ever Reading Candle, a limited-edition scented coconut wax product designed to arm the reader with scents powerful enough to tackle the toughest of syntax, from Tolstoy to Twilight.

The candle’s three scents—Sandalwood, Sea Salt, and Orchid—activate the reader’s literary senses by releasing an aromatherapy blend, designed to increase focus and relieve anxiety and making it a perfect addition to any bibliophile’s library.

Be sure to trim your wick to 1/4" every time you light your candle—This will eliminate tunneling and ensure the best burn possible. Keep your candle out of direct sunlight, otherwise discoloration may occur.

We use all-natural, eco-friendly coconut wax and high quality fragrance oils. Our wicks are made from 100% natural cotton and are lead-free.

Make sure to burn your candle for 2-4 hours at a time. This will allow the wax to evenly distribute across the top of the candle, instead of pooling around the wick and tunneling. Allowing a full melt pool will additionally allow the candles full scent to fill the room.

HOW THE READING CANDLE WORKS

A trace of sandalwood in the Reading Candle exists not just for its sylvan, page-like scent but also for therapeutic properties—the oil has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine and Buddhist meditation to maintain a person’s calm alertness. The scent of sandalwood produces an atmosphere redolent of attentiveness and relaxation—a reader’s ideal condition.

The dominant aroma of the Reading Candle calls forth a sun-filled room, filled with exotic and fragrant orchids. Demure and steadfast like a Jane Austen novel, its fragrance settles you in lush Victorian gardens and the era’s famed orchidelirium, a nineteenth-century flower craze that still exists today.

Finally, notes of sea salt contrast with the heavier, sweeter scents of the Reading Candle. Where the poetic elements of orchids border on feminine, sea salt and its associations in nautical fiction conjure marlin fishing with Hemingway, and Captain Ahab’s revenge against the great white whale.

The product’s label is designed to mimic a book’s pages. Catchwords cascade down the candle sticker in a subtle reference to the Snellen eye chart. Keeping with Jade And Juniper’s minimalist aesthetic, the Reading Candle promises only to compete for your nose, not for your eyes.

The Reading Candle is ideal for any kind of perusal—studying textbooks, thumbing through a magazine, or finishing the final pages of your favorite piece of fiction before bed. What’s more, once the wax has melted down and the wick runs out, the Reading Candle can be repurposed to hold writing utensils, succulents, and other home sundries.

Alongside a steaming cup of tea or snug blanket, the warm, buttery smell of the Reading Candle lingers in the background, ready to set the mood for any reading session.
