Labor Day Weekend Hours

Labor Day Weekend marks the unofficial end of summer for many of us. Your nose may be feeling in the fall spirit even if the temps outside aren't quite there yet, and we've got lots of fall fragrances to fit the bill. All of our stores will be closed on Monday, September 2 to enjoy the day with family and friends:

Friday & Saturday, August 30 & 31  |  11AM - 8PM
Sunday, September 1  |  12 - 5PM 
Monday, September 2  |  CLOSED

We'd love to pour custom-scented candles with you and your family before or after the Holiday!  Make the smells of summer last for hours.

The Candle Lab: 101

September.  Even if your school days are long behind you, there is just something about Labor Day weekend that feels like a fresh start, a new beginning. A time to get back to the basics and into a routine. Which got us thinking: maybe it’s time we do a little refresher course ourselves!  You probably don’t spend your days thinking about candles (if you do - we’ve got a job for you!), so we thought we’d take this time to remind you of The Candle Lab basics and how we can help you this school year. We promise - you’ll ace this course.  


The Candle Lab: 101

Did you know you can book a party (5+ guests) on our website? It only takes a couple of minutes to complete the form, and we’ll be in touch to confirm your reservation. Or simply call the store of your choice. Pouring candles is perfect for groups of all ages and sizes - from your child’s birthday party to your boss’ retirement and everything in between. 

Raising money is easy and fun with our Dollars & Scents program! Pick a day and store, and 20% of all retail sales go back to your favorite non-profit organization. No hustling required!  

Whether you need a quick grab-and-go housewarming gift or holiday gifts for your entire office, we’ve got you covered. All of our 140+ fragrances can be ordered on our website and shipped to your doorstep with free shipping over $40, or stop in to grab something off the shelf.  Ordering mini custom candles for gifts is even easy and affordable - just waft on in to get started.

Let us Scent your Event! From centerpieces to custom candle party favors, we can handle it all. Just waft in to any store to speak with a manager and get started - you’ll be surprised at how quick, easy, and affordable it is!

We are thrilled to participate in the 614 Reduction Sale again!

Those dog days of summer

We know we aren’t the only people who can’t believe it's almost August.  Where did the summer go?! And yes, while we know that technically summer hangs on for another couple of months, we can’t help but feel like the start of the school year and Labor Day Weekend mark the end of the dog days. But the good news is - it’s not over yet! Below are some of our favorite ways to make the most of what's left of summer:  

Participate in your community  
If you haven’t attended a community event yet this summer, now is the time! Our local communities put on amazing (free!) events all summer designed to help you explore your neighborhood.  We recommend pouring candles first, then enjoying a special event while the candles cool.  Our favorites include:

Try something new
Think about it:  when is the last time that you really tried something new?  The good news is, we've made it easy to tap into your adventurous side. We love partnering with local businesses to offer events and workshops in our stores that "smell" a bit outside of the box.  Start by pouring your own candle, then try something new!  Practice your "Om" with a yoga class, enjoy one of many beer and wine tastings, develop your green thumb with a succulent potting class, or even take your kids to a string art class.  Check our our event calendar for a complete list of in-store events and to purchase tickets.  

Take the kids on an epic fun day
Earlier this summer we put together a list of our favorite ways to combat summer boredom.  The last few days of summer can be some of the trickiest, with rising anxieties for the new year ahead.  Take their minds off the looming school year and plan a last summer hurrah! Start by Experimenting with Scent by pouring custom-scented candles (room sprays are fun, too!), then take the kids for a picnic at a nearby park, or to a baseball game, or to play mini golf, or just out for ice cream.  The day can be as long or as short as you desire!

Plan a ladies’ night out
Need we remind you that summer isn’t just for kids?  If you are finding that you haven’t spent enough time enjoying the company of others this summer, it’s not too late to plan a ladies’ night out, summer style!  Whether it’s a girl date with you best friend or a whole gathering of women, The Candle Lab is the perfect place to start your night. Pour a custom-scented candle together (you can even enjoy a glass of wine while doing so in our Grandview location), then continue the conversation over dinner or more wine - or even just a stroll through town.  

Tell us - how do you plan to make the most of those dog days of summer?

A Great Smelling Deal to Help Stuff the Backpack!

The Candle Lab has partnered with NBC4 in Columbus, Ohio to help Stuff the Backpack!  

From now until mid-August, all four of our central Ohio stores will be collecting backpacks as part of the Stuff the Backpack program from NBC4.

To help make your donation smell even sweeter, when you donate a stuffed backpack, you'll get 40% off your purchase! 

When your kids start to get antsy and the swimming pool has lost its initial appeal, pouring candles is the perfect activity to challenge their creative minds. Take the kids school supply shopping, stuff an extra backpack, then bring it into the store to pour a candle and get 40% off!    

Stuff the Backpack benefits 25 school districts in Franklin and Licking counties (up from just one in 2018) and helps offset the amount of money public school teachers spend from their own pockets to support their classrooms.  We are honored to partner with NBC4 for this important initiative.   

40% off your purchase - limit one per customer. Cannot be combined with other in-store offers or coupons and cannot be used towards the purchase of gift cards or the Nina West Collection.
