Welcome to Moonshot Studio

Moonshot Studio is a haven for your sense of smell and an inspirational spot to create your own signature candle or custom-scented body products.

Whether you come in with your family, date, friends, or as a solo fragrance adventurer, the selection and blending experience creates memories to cherish. Choose from among our 80+ fragrances, blend your favorite combinations, and walk away with affordably luxurious items to treasure in your home and on your body.

Below are a few of the items that are available to create, with custom-made candles starting at $36.


Candles, our most popular products, are made from a soy wax blend, cotton wicks and fragrance oils. They are clean-burning and long-lasting (approximately 40 hours of burning time for 7.5 oz.), with the natural ivory color of soy wax. We carry a variety of beautiful candle jars, including 7.5 oz. single-wick glass jars in six colors, 13.5 oz. double-wick hand-blown glass jars in 3 designs, adorable owl and kitty jars, 18 oz. 3-wick handmade ceramic vessels, and others. We also offer 80+ pre-made 7.5 oz. candles and 4 oz. candles in gold-colored metal tins.

Reed Diffusers
& Wax Tarts

Reed diffusers and Wax Tarts provide flameless ways to disperse fragrance blends into your home, office, business and other indoor environments. These items are perfect for bringing beautiful scent into surroundings where a flame is not desirable or is not permitted (apartments, dorm rooms, retirement communities & other community spaces). We carry a limited selections of electric warmers for the Wax Tarts, too.

Room & Body Sprays

For a quick burst of scent that lasts for at least 3-5 hours per application, Room & Body Sprays are a great choice. These portable 4 oz. mists are skin and fabric safe. Use them on your body as a personal fragrance, and as another flameless option for dispersing fragrance indoors -- as a way to scent your bed linens, refresh a car’s interior, mask odors or enhance your mood through scent.
