Our Story

We wanted to create a premium long-lasting all-natural coconut wax candle to bring our favorite scents from the great outdoors into your living room, and, give back to the National Parks we love so much. This is why we donate 5% of all proceeds right back to the National Park Foundation.

Musky Trails candles are made from 100% coconut wax, and use only all-natural cherry wood wicks, that gently crackle for a long, clean burn. We curate all-natural essential oil additives for our candles, which make them burn longer and cleaner than your average candle. We pride ourselves in the burn time and quality of our candles, give us a chance and smell the difference!

All of our house-blend candle scents are inspired by smells encountered while traversing back country trails around North America, such as the Big Sur ocean trails, Adirondacks, Kansas prairies, Rocky Mountain trails, Redwood & Sequoia forests, a rustic cabin lodge in Wyoming, and countless more. We know you will enjoy the pleasure of “bringing the outdoors in” with a Musky Trails candle as much as we do.

We are currently moving our studio from Oakland, CA to our headquarters in South Lake Tahoe, CA. You may receive a hand-poured candle made in either place!

We would love your feedback! Follow us on FacebookInstagram, or contact us directly.

We do local vending events around the bay area
