Looking for a fun activity to do with friends or family? Host a private candlemaking party! We'll bring all of the supplies and even craft a custom scent menu for your guests to make their own fragrance blends! You can choose from either an in-depth workshop where we educate guests on the entire candlemaking process, or a more laid back "candle bar" experience where we get down to business and just make some dang candles. (A workshop entails an engaging presentation with slides and handouts and lasts about 60 minutes, not including candlemaking time.)
We'll need an 8x10 table, kitchen island, or countertop for a wax melter, fragrances, and candle supplies. If you have a theme for your event just let us know and we can customize the menu, scents, and colors! Minimum of six guests. $35 per person + a $50 party fee.

Please note: You will need to let your candle "cure" (sit still to cool) for at least one hour after it is poured. This is the perfect opportunity to explore the garden, shop at the gift shop or grab lunch nearby! Candles may be picked up after one hour. Due to the medium used (hot wax) we ask that participants be at least 13 years of age.
Note: Candles and Wax Melts are poured in small batches, so the color may vary slightly from the photo. Frosting also may occur, which happens naturally in soy candles, and there's no sure way of preventing it. Frosting is a white crystallization that forms on the wax, but it will not affect the scent throw or burning of your candle.
Burning Instructions: Trim wick to 1/4 inch before lighting. Keep candle free of any loose materials including matches, wick trimmings, and gemstones. Only burn the candle on a level, fire resistant surface. Do not burn the candle for more than 4 hours at a time.
To prevent fire and serious injury: Burn candle within sight. Keep away from drafts and vibrations. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Never burn candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Do not burn candle all the way to the bottom of the tin, allow at least 1cm of wax at the bottom then discard or reuse the vessel.
