we have a burning desire

to help fund the fight against cancer
By Giving Back

Benefiscent was born out of a desire to give back to cancer research. We believe 'it makes scents to do good' and that is why we created consciously-made candles that spark joy and inspire hope for a cure.

Best of all, every candle gives back- 20% of all profits are donated to leading cancer research institutions in the USA.

The Daily Burn

Our collection of approachable luxury candles are designed to be burned everyday- not just look pretty on the shelf. We not only design fragrances with master perfumers but hand pour our candles with the best ingredients and test them consistently for the perfect burn. You can rest assured that your candles will burn cleanly edge-to-edge without scorching, all while smelling fabulous.

Clean candles
From Bean to Burn

We prioritize making clean candles for you and our planet! Our candles are hand poured with sustainably sourced American grown soy wax, phthalate-free fragrances and essential oils to provide the safest burn. We use recyclable glass vessels with engraved wooden lids that are perfect for repurposing post-burn. Our candles and ingredients are free of all preservatives, additives, phthalates, lead, and petroleum. Benefiscent is cruelty-free and vegan.

What our customers are saying...


You can smell these candles THROUGH the jar. It's incredible. I'm a candle fanatic and absolutely blown away by the quality!

New York, NY

This candle was amazing! Even after I blew the candle out at bedtime, the smell wafted through the room for a solid hour. In the morning when I woke up, I still was able to smell the candle, even though it wasn't burning! So pleased with this candle and can't wait to order another one!

OBSESSED! I can’t get enough of this candle. Beautiful rosemary scent that isn’t overwhelming. I have yet to smell a Benifiscent candle I don’t like. Highly recommend!!

I purchased two of the diffusers, vanilla and clementine/pine, this summer at the Ann Arbor Art Fair. After using the vanilla one for 3+ months it's still going strong! I love the way it makes my car smell and get compliments on it all the time. Highly recommend :) Would make a perfect gift!

Finally found scented candle that I love! For years I have been searching for scented candles to burn in my home. I'm very picky about the scent, the appearance and the quality of the ingredients. I am pleased to say that, after discovering benefiscent candles at the Mystic Arts Festival this summer, I am hooked! I've already ordered another one and would highly recommend.

Eco Lighters

Gone are the days of trashing (non-recyclable) plastic butane lighters every 100 uses. This rechargeable lighter is eco-conscious and wallet-conscious, because this is the last lighter you will EVER need!

Wick Trimmers

To get the cleanest, longest, and safest burn from any candle, you should always keep your wicks trimmed to a 1/4 of an inch. Wick trimmers have an ergonomic shape for candles that a scissor cannot provide.

Wick Dippers

This tool allows you to push a candle wick over into the melted wax which suffocates the flame without smoke! This method also coats and seals the wick with a new layer of wax to get a better burn out of your candles.
