Each candle will give you approximately 48 hours burn time.
Rebecca, our Chief Crafting Officer, will take you through all the steps you will need to create your candles from premium soy wax. The workshop will start with an introduction to the fragrance wheel and how to properly scent your candles, you will then select your own scents for each of your candles, the biggest challenge will be narrowing it down from our wide range of fragrances. You will then learn how to calculate the amount of wax needed and select the correct wick for your vessel before pouring your candles.
