Meet the Maker

Laurel Walker started her candle making journey in 2020 when the world as we knew it, changed. While working in the entertainment industry for nearly 30 years, it became clear that there was no better time to pursue the creative outlet she was longing for. She quickly discovered the magic in pouring candles, mixing scents, and sharing her craft with those around her.

After a nearly four months of finding the perfect formula, Hot Mess Creations was born. What started as a passion project, has now become a small business in Ventura, California & labor of love, and we know you will love Hot Mess Creations as much as we do.

    Hot Mess candles not only smell amazing, but they also are beautifully designed & have them in every room in my house! They also make the perfect gift. I do a lot of personal and corporate gifting and this is always my go to…especially the dough bowl candles. They arrive beautifully packaged and a lovely addition to any space. Plus, your recipient think’s of you every time they see or smell it!

    These candles are amazing! There is so much intentional thought put into the design and scents. I’ve used them as gifts for several clients and friends and each time I’ve received rave reviews. Plus, I love to grab a few extras to enjoy around my own home too!

    Collaborating with Laurel at Hot Mess Creations for an exclusive candle at my Rowan Boutique locations has been such a wonderful experience. The Rowan Babe candle is a customer favorite and I love that we can offer something unique and designed with intention to fit my brand.
