Wholesale Scented Candles
If you’re on the lookout for candles with character, you’ve come to the right place. At Frostbeard Studio, we channel our love of literature into creating unique, book inspired scents that appeal to readers, writers, and anyone else who loves a good story.
Book Scented Candles from Frostbeard
With a wide range of scents available, there’s something for everyone here – from the fantasy lover to the aspiring author to the general bibliophile. While our candles do particularly well in bookstores, they’re also the perfect product for pop-up shops and other businesses interested in offering high-quality, handmade goods.
Handcrafted with Quality Materials
We’re dedicated to including safe, sustainable materials in our book scented candles, and we’re always looking for more ways to decrease our environmental impact. Each Frostbeard candle is non-toxic, vegan, cruelty-free, and made with renewable resources in our Minneapolis studio. In fact, all of our candles are currently made with:
- 100% soy wax
- Lead-free cotton wick
- Hand-picked fragrance oils
- Liquid and/or solid candle dyes
- Recyclable and reusable glass jars and aluminum tins

Availability and Sizes
All 4 oz and 8 oz candles from our permanent and seasonal collections are available for wholesale. Please note that we only allow resale of our products in physical shops and stores – our candles may not be resold online by third parties, so we don’t accept wholesale orders for online shops or marketplaces. Our 2 oz tins, tarts, bookish merch, and clearance items are also retail-only.
We’re open for wholesale orders from January through late November, with seasonal collections becoming available throughout this period. Our busy holiday season runs from late November through December, so stock up early to ensure that you have the right scents on hand!
8 Oz Jars
This is where it all started – with a simple scent in a sizeable jar. Our 8 oz jars are currently our biggest and most popular size. They also give off the most scent throw when lit, making them a lovely, thoughtful gift or perfect for use at home. This size of candle comes in a glass jar with an aluminum screw-on lid.
4 Oz Tins
With their light weight, smaller size, and pop-off lids, our 4 oz tins make for fun, affordable gifts and do extremely well at pop-up events. Their small size isn’t the only thing that makes this candle easy to transport – the entirely aluminum container also makes it less likely to break.
Our seasonal collections consist of scents handpicked to complement the particular time of year. For example, one of our Spring 2019 candles is Pemberley Gardens. Its floral notes of rose, lilac, and hyacinth evoke the romantic gardens of Pemberley, filling the air with a delicate, traditional smell perfect for spring. But not every scent is so clearly related to the season. This year, our summer collection consists of scents ranging from the adventurous Cliffs of Insanity to the dreamy Fairy Tale Ending.
We’re pleased to offer wholesalers early access to our seasonal scents before they become available to our retail customers. While we do bring back seasonal favorites year after year, we also like to switch things up and include new scents in our collections. Not only does this encourage loyal customers to restock on their favorite scents when they become available again, but it also creates anticipation around any new scents that might be joining a seasonal collection!
Our permanent collection is available to wholesalers January 1-November 16. This selection features some of our most popular scents, like Old Books, Sherlock’s Study and Sassenach. These candles aren’t connected to any particular season but instead do well year-round. Go ahead, ask a few readers – they’ll tell you that there’s never a bad time for your house to smell like the Oxford Library!
We’re pleased to offer a convenient online wholesale shop. Simply add items to your cart and checkout through our website! There is a minimum order requirement of 24 candles per size, with additional quantities available in increments of 12. Our current order maximum is 48 candles per size, which means that you can get up to 96 total candles at once. You’re welcome to mix and match scents to ensure that you have a varied supply for your customers.
Payment, Processing, and Shipping Times
Frostbeard accepts all major credit cards as well as PayPal, but we cannot take payment over the phone. Once you’ve placed and paid for your order, we’ll get it packed up and sent out! Processing and shipping times can vary, but we generally ship wholesale orders within 3-5 business days. These orders are typically shipped via FedEx Ground or USPS Priority Mail, with the buyer paying shipping costs. Most orders will arrive within two to three days of shipment.
