Key Features of the Birthdate Candle

Birthdate Candles are handpoured in small batches in the United States. They're made from all-natural soy, coconut, and apricot wax with a cotton wick. These candles are 13.5oz and have a burn time of 60-80 hours, which if you ask me, is how long any birthday should really last. Each label and scent is custom made for all 365 days of the year. If you love astrology or just want to do a deep self-dive, this candle is perfect for you.

Ratings Breakdown


The candle and jar itself are heavy and high quality. The label is easy to read and had no smudges or bubbles.


With 60-80 hours of burn with a customized scent for your birthday, I think these candles are so worth the price point. 


It's super easy to select any birthday from the drop-down menu. They also have personalized gift sets if you want to go the extra mile!


These super-personalized products are a great gift for anyone, especially those who have struggled to find custom gifts in the past. I would love to see more transparency about sourcing or a strong mission in the future, though.

Reading Your Birthdate Candle

Birthdate Co. works with a team of astrologers and master perfumers to develop the perfect star-sent message and scent for each day of the year. By combining astrology, numerology, and tarot, your Birthdate Candle creates a beautiful message personalized just for you! The label of your candle can be a little intimidating if you're an astrology rookie like me- so, let's break it down.

• Astrology explains how the alignment of the planets help influence your behavior and personality.
• Numerology is the belief of how numbers have influence over us and events in our lives.
• Tarot cards are an age-old practice used for fortune-telling!

I was born on July 29th, which makes me a Leo. The front label has your sign, ruling number, ruling planet, and decan, which splits your zodiac sign into 3 parts depending on when in the zodiac term you were born. Aside from the too-accurate personalized label, each day also has a custom scent designed by professional perfumers. My scent is a combination of rosemary, chamomile, and shea, which resulted in the perfect light floral that smells just like a summer day.

The back of the label goes into further detail on your ruling planet, ruling number, (which is found by adding the days of your birth together, being born on the 29th means my ruling number is 2+9 =11!) and tarot reading. Reading the label helped me discover a lot about myself and was a great in-depth dive to the world of astrology and spirituality!

Birthdate Candles: Final Thoughts

Reading my candle helped me discover a lot more about myself and my planetary rulings. The light floral scent filled my room without being overwhelming due to the natural fragrance oils. Don't just take it from me; Birthdate Candles have more than 10,000 5-star reviews! With the holidays coming up, a Birthdate Candle is a perfect personalized gift. Whether you love astrology, want to learn more about yourself, or just want a cool statement piece, Birthdate Candles are sure to be a hit with everyone.
