the world is on fire. make sure it smells nice.

once upon a time, a Chicago actor was put out of work thanks to a string of some "unprecedented times." she needed to find a new string of income and something to occupy her free time—a backup plan, if you will. so she decided to do the sensible thing...and take up candle-making.

she enlisted the help of her husband, a fellow actor and writer, and they decided to funnel their jaded, cheeky sense of humor into their brand new candle brand. thus, "backup plan candles" was born.

we craft high-quality, eco-friendly, delightfully scented soy candles that smell like hilarity, nostalgia, and comfort. cuz when your day doesn't go right or the apocalypse finally comes, you'll be glad you had a backup plan 🔥
