About Us

Purgatory Candle Co is a WOC owned home fragrance and lifestyle brand that celebrates the occult and macabre. Our products are inspired by our Mexican/Latinx heritage and the misfit subcultures we found ourselves embedded in, during our adolescence. Purgatory Candle Co was founded to fill a void for all who often straddle their cultural and subcultural identities. We are here for all the horror cinephiles, the folklorists, the Goth Foos, and everyone in between. It is through these intersections where we have found community, and strive to create elevated home fragrance for those that the home fragrance industry left behind. 

Our candles and wax melts are made with 100% soy wax, and are hand poured and designed in small batches. Owners Jasmine and Lesly work closely together to create candles that are unique and smell hauntingly good.
