What you'll learn in this candle making class:

Learn the power and skills to create a healthy, fragrant, natural candle you can feel really good about burning in your home.

The class is approximately 2.5 hours and organized into 2 parts, theory and practice.

Part I includes the following topics:
  • Why making natural candles are better for your health and the environment.
  • The variety of ingredients needed to make a natural candle, how to select and where to source them.
  • The equipment required to make your own candles, a tutorial on how to use it safely and effectively, as well as where you can purchase it.
  • A unique recipe to make scented natural candles.
  • The testing guidelines, advice & legal requirements to sell your own candles.
Part II of the class will be the actual practice of making candles, the most fun part!

We will work together to create 2 types of candles:
  • Lotion candle
    • when burned, the melted wax can actually be used as a moisturizing agent on your skin, making it ideal for that relaxing spa-like atmosphere you’re going for in your home. 
  • Standard natural scented candle
    • Utilizing 100% soy or coconut wax with pure oil fragrance, we will make candles you can be proud to burn in any room of the house.
You will leave the class with:
  • An extensive knowledge about candles and the natural ingredients required to make them yourself
  • 2 x natural scented candles (standard & lotion) that you created yourself
Note: Friday class includes complimentary wine & cheese, Sunday class includes complimentary coffee & brunch bites.

Do you use essential oils or fragrance oils? I am highly allergic to the fragrance oils. I hope it’s essential oils since I’m so excited to take this class! Warmly, Sylvia

Hi Sylvia! The school does work with phthalates free fragrances oils and not essential oils. They actually explain why during the class as to why they used to work with them and chose not to anymore.

This class was fantastic. Melanie was a ball of fire and very knowledgeable. She is very willing to share most of her tips and tricks to help your hobby become more consistent or maybe even a business. She will answer any questions that you may have limiting to proprietary secrets, naturally. Haha. I would continue to take classes with her if she offered more advanced classes in the future. All and all, great class and you won't be disappointed.

I enjoyed this class. We had a small group and Melanie was very thorough with her information. I enjoyed that stressed the important of natural ingredients. She answered all your questions and was willing to share where she has taken fragrance classes at. I’m happy with my candle and cannot wait to burn it.

I really enjoyed the class and learned a lot about both buying and making candles. Melanie, the teacher, is clearly super knowledgeable and informed about the industry, and she was very patient in answering the class's many, many, many questions. I enjoyed the way the class was structured and the fact that it was a pretty small group. You will come away from this class knowing how to make your own soy and coconut wax-based candles and what to look for when buying candles.
