About Us

Established in 2018, HALFMOON Candle Co. is your one-stop shop for hand poured crystal infused candles, made with all natural soy and coconut wax and blended with the perfect combination of essential oils and phthalate free fragrance oils. Vegan and poured with the most positive vibes. 

About Erica:  Owner and creator Erica Snyder, a passionate, music loving creative based in Chicago, IL first began selling her hand poured candles at art and music festivals in the Chicagoland area and HMC quickly grew into a recognized brand and online shop. Erica became the known "candle girl" amongst fellow local shops, and HMC (both signature line and collaboration) are sold in 20 US retailers. In addition to candles, HMC now has fragrance, apparel, accessories and a beauty line on the way.

As a self-proclaimed Willy Wonka of candles, Erica continues to cook up new and inventive fragrance/crystal combinations to satisfy both the senses and the soul.

Erica lives in the Chicagoland area with her husband Derek and their daughter Penelope and both are huge influences on her creations, along with her love of music and everything rock and roll. 


"As a dreamer of dreams, I will continue to work on fulfilling each one, big and small - until HMC is available around the world." 

"I pour a bit of my soul into each and every candle, fragrance and product, there's no other way to do it; you have to be true to you."

"I started HMC to prove to myself that I could provide for my family by using one of the greatest gifts I was given - my creativity. It hasn't been easy, but the best things in life never are."


How do crystals work?

Crystals emit a powerful frequency of energy vibration that combined with our own energy can positively enhance our mood, help manifest inner peace, and bring goals and intentions to fruition.

Historically, crystals have been used for physical and spiritual healing, to awaken clairvoyance, and to sharpen a specific intention.

Each stone has its own character and specific energy properties. They channel energies by absorbing and catalyzing the flow of our physical and emotional being, and the positive energies resonate through us.


+ Before lighting - choose your intention for the candle.

+ Keep crystal inside of candle as it burns - the wax will become infused with the energy of the stone and radiate around you.

+ After your candle has burned through, remove the crystal to carry with you or place in your space of meditation.

+ For maximum scent throw - we recommend burning your candle for a minimum of 2 hours for the first burn, and 1-2 hours each time after.
