Eco-Friendly Candle Making

This event has passed.

Learn everything you need to know about making your own natural aromatherapy candles!

Everyone loves the glow of candlelight. Learn to make your own candles, just like those you find in stores, but better because you will be using natural waxes (no petroleum-based paraffin) and pure essential oils. Soy wax is a newer product and is a wonderful alternative to paraffin. You’ll work with the two main types: hard soy wax (used for votive, pillar or freestanding candles) and soft soy wax (used for container candles).

Beeswax is another natural wax with a lovely honey aroma, and we’ll use beeswax sheets to make rolled taper candles. Both soy candles & beeswax candles burn longer & cleaner than common paraffin candles.

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
