When I decided I wanted to showcase badass, inspirational women on my blog, one of the very first women I thought of was Lacie Marsh-Carroll, owner of Malicious Women Candle Co. out of Lake Stevens, Washington. I love candles, I love cussing, I love fierce and feisty women. And this genius went and combined all those things into beautiful little jars of awesomeness. What’s not to love?
In the short time that I’ve been following Lacie and her business, I’ve seen someone who is a real, down-to-earth, hard-working woman. She’s known struggle and is now tasting success after bravely venturing into the world of small business.

ABOUT MALICIOUS WOMEN CANDLE CO.
According to the website “Each candle is hand poured and scented with a custom fragrance blended by the original Malicious Woman herself. Each label has a story and an experience, that have made me and my besties laugh our asses off over cocktails. Nothing says “You’re my best bitch” like a Malicious Women Candle. Whatever the occasion, these rustic-chic candles are guaranteed to create an experience of laughter. We hope you are able to see yourself in one or two of our humorous labels and support a greater cause.”
Yes, you read that right, these candles also “support a greater cause”. As if these kick-ass little candles weren’t already amazing enough, Lacie also uses her small business to give back to the community and to women who need help the most. “MWCC’s mission is to provide a light for women who find themselves in a dark place through supporting and donating a portion of the proceeds from each sale to empowering women.”
The main program MWCC currently supports is the Dress For Success program in Seattle, Washington. Dress For Success’ mission is empowering women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women re-entering the workforce.
CHOOSE YOUR LABEL, THEN CHOOSE YOUR SCENT
There are many label collections to choose from. These are just a few of my favorites:
For those of you looking for something a little more family oriented there’s
These couldn’t speak more loudly to my soul. I love the humor, uniqueness, and creativity that goes into every candle.
The best part is, you choose the scent that goes into your pot of sass! A few of my favorites are:
* A Hot Mess – a custom blend of warm baking spices, sweet cinnamon, and a hint of black tea for balance
* Vanilla Sugar -cookies straight from the oven
* Luscious Lavender – warm and natural, blended with just a hint of softness
* Leather n Lace – a brushed leather top-note over a light creamy vanilla base.
* Falling Hard – a seasonal scent – vibrant orange peel, juicy apples, nutmeg, clove and cinnamon followed by a hint of vanilla and musk.
Although I had an extremely hard time deciding which candle would be my first, I eventually ended up ordering Shit.Fuck.Damn scented with A Hot Mess and I adore it! Shipping was fast and I’m very pleased with the quality of the candle. I can’t wait to add more to my collection!
I want one of these candles in every room of my house and I want to buy 10 of them for each of my friends because they obviously make great gifts for so many occasions.
