In Words of Fire: A set of four candles

$40.00 / Sold Out

Poet and candlemaker Lisa Ciccarello of A Dark House has created “In Words of Fire,” a limited-edition set of four unique candles crafted to evoke the story of Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House:

The Blue Room (lavender / cedarwood / orris root)
Picnic in the Woods (balsam / evergreens / sweet grass)
The Red Sweater (sugared rose / musk / cedar)
Up the Tower Stairs (damp soil / parchment / leather)

The set comes nestled inside a black paper box emblazoned with Hill House-inspired art (by The Creeping Museum’s own Layla Sullivan) in gold, and is accompanied by a booklet with a “prologue” for each scent written by Lisa Ciccarello.

The special Deluxe edition comes in a beautiful 6”x6”x4” keepsake wooden box with Layla’s art. Each box is handmade so please expect minor variations and imperfections. The Deluxe edition also comes with a special Ghostly White edition of our “Where is Your Home” amulet brooch.

These 4oz pure soy candles are made with phthalate-free fragrance oils and essential oils and a cotton wick in a reusable tin.

Lisa is donating proceeds from the sale of the set to the Jed Foundation, a nonprofit working to protect emotional health and prevent suicide for teens and young adults in the U.S. The Deluxe edition will support both the Jed Foundation and future nonprofit Creeping Museum projects.

Please note that the candle sets are heavy and expensive to ship, especially to locations outside the U.S. If the actual shipping cost is less than the estimate I will refund the difference.

AN IMPORTANT NOTE: Our shop is a one-person volunteer operation. Due to the scope of the Darkness Within release, please allow 2 weeks for your order to be shipped. Thank you so much for your support!
