What you'll do
Join me in my home in West Hollywood where you'll learn how to make a scented coconut wax candle using eco-friendly, nontoxic ingredients. This experience is great for beginners, groups, and also makes a unique gift. We’ll start with an introduction to the basics: different types of wax available and how to use them, heating wax, adding oils, mixing scents and general candle maintenance. Then you'll create your own custom scent and hand-pour a candle to take home for yourself, or someone you love! While the candles are setting, you'll have the opportunity to personalize and decorate your candle and gift box. Enjoy complimentary beverages and snacks while I share with you my personal techniques and the tips and tricks that I’ve picked up throughout my years of candle making. I’ll also share with you some of my knowledge of the candle making business. All necessary tools and supplies - coconut wax, essential oils and fragrances, wicks, amber glass jars, labels, and decorations - will be provided. You'll have the option of creating one 8 oz candle or two 4 oz candles.
I'm an LA local and was the co-founder of This Candle Company before launching my solo candle company, Basil & Saffron Candle Co. I've been making candles personally for myself, friends/family and professionally for several years. I'm passionate about candle making and creating unique candles from quality ingredients that are sustainably sourced, nontoxic and eco-friendly. I want to share this passion with others and teach them how fun and easy the art of candle making can be.
