Some people are just candle people... You know them. They have fifty dollar candles scattered throughout the house with a few secret Glade (Glaaaahday) candles in the bathroom. Making your own is fun and easy, not to mention you can make custom scents that make you happy. Learn the basics of candle making with Joy Kwon from the Lighten Up Shoppe. You will be making two natural scented candles in mason jars (sometimes we have some cool vintage small jars too). We jedi you in creating your own personal scents by mixing and matching a variety of different scented oils and essential oils, think bergamont vanilla or spruce- we have an array of fruits, florals, fresh scents and plenty of dude scents too guys. So don’t expect to end up with Hawaiian Breeze stick ups or that Yankee Candle your mom gives you every Christmas. Learn the basics of using soy waxes, proper and safe ways to melt them and how to let them best set and wick basics. We will be using a variety wax candle dye chips to add color to one of your candles during the melted stage. After learning the basics of soy candle making through this class, you’ll be whipping up your own awesome candles at home in no time! Helllloooo epic Holiday gifts- whoot whoot.
Supplies Needed: None! But please feel free to bring your own essential oils if you have some favorites at home.
