Learn how to make your own scent profile and candle in your own home. The class will last an hour & a half and by the end you will have your own scented candle, tweaked to your personal preferences. You will be guided through the entire process; we will start with walk-through of all the basics, including talking about wax and essential oil behaviours as well as the patterns of the fragrance wheel and how to create a balanced scent profile. We will spend some time creating and adjusting beautiful scents which aim to spark joy, relaxation and inspiration. After preparing and wicking our vessels, it’ll be time to marry the scent and wax. This is where the magic happens. Pour, set & fix are our final steps. Natural waxes require gentle care and understanding and we will show you how to achieve the final polished product. We use very few and all natural ingredients; organic soya wax holds scent perfectly and has a cleaner burn while the essential oils don’t clog up your atmosphere with harmful emissions. - Class duration is 2 hours which covers the time of introduction, making and setting the candles and allows time for corrections. - The materials including waxes, oils, vessels and equipment are all provided by us. However, we do require access to a kitchen / stove.
I have been making candles & body products with hejmo-ĝojo since 2020. We're a small, hand made company dedicated to simple, vegan & sustainable products. Candle making is great fun for me and allows me to use my creative (and scientific!) side. A sensory experience, creating the oil blend, finishing the vessel & working the wax it's a little bit like chemistry, with amazing & complex scents.
