Using these 2 natural waxes, we’ll experiment as we make 3 popular types of candles:
- Soy Wax Votives
- Soy Wax Container Candles
- Rolled Beeswax Candles
The class will cover everything you need to know about making candles: basic safety considerations, necessary equipment and materials, different types of wick, how to color your candles, how to scent and mold them, as well as ideas for how to package them.
We’ll discuss scenting candles with natural, pure essential oils for their aromatherapy benefit and to keep our candles natural. Each student will custom scent and color (optional) their own candles. Whether you are making candles for yourself, for gifts, or to sell, this is the class you’ve been looking for! It’s hands-on and packed with information.
You’ll take home thorough handouts, enough information to make natural wax candles on your own as well as a pair of beeswax rolled taper candles, a 6 oz. aromatherapy soy container candle, and 2 aromatherapy scented soy wax votives. Just to be on the safe side, please don’t wear your favorite clothes (in case wax gets on them).
