About the event

This is a 90 minute class that includes fragrance blending with 12 fragrances to choose from, candle making, and candle tips. Candle vessels are 10 oz white or clear glass based of availability.  We blend with plant base wax blends for all candles.  Candles have to cure and will have to be picked up the next day or at a later date.  Bring a friend or make it a fun date and enjoy a new fun skill and you get to enjoy it later at home. 

**The Art of Candle Making and Its Therapeutic Essence**:

**Historical Glimpse**:

The art of candle making, or chandlery, can be traced back to ancient civilizations, where candles served as a primary source of light and were symbols of celebration, serenity, and devotion. Crafted from various materials including beeswax, tallow, and later, paraffin, these illuminating creations have evolved over the millennia, both in form and function.

**The Craft**:

Modern candle making is a blend of science and artistry. At its core, it involves melting a choice of wax, adding dyes and fragrances, and setting a wick at the center. However, the true art emerges in the countless variations: selecting the right molds, crafting unique shapes, blending enticing fragrances, and creating multi-layered colors.

**Therapeutic Qualities**:

1. **Mindful Engagement**: The process of candle making requires focus and attention to detail, making it an exercise in mindfulness. This concentrated engagement can act as a meditative process, helping to calm the mind and reduce stress.

2. **Sensory Stimulation**: The act of choosing and blending fragrances stimulates the olfactory senses. This sensory interaction can evoke memories, promote relaxation, and even boost mood.

3. **Creativity Boost**: Designing candles—be it selecting colors, molds, or crafting unique designs—provides an avenue for artistic expression. This creative release can be deeply satisfying and therapeutic.

4. **Tactile Connection**: Physically interacting with the materials—feeling the wax melt, pouring it into molds, and shaping the candles—establishes a tactile connection, grounding the individual and promoting a sense of accomplishment.

5. **Ambiance Creation**: Lighting a self-made candle at the end of the day not only illuminates the space but also instills a sense of pride and accomplishment. The soft glow and gentle fragrance can further enhance relaxation and well-being.

**In Conclusion**:

Candle making, much like other artisanal crafts, is not just about the end product but about the journey. It's a therapeutic dance of the senses, intertwining the tangible with the intangible, crafting moments of peace, creativity, and personal connection. Whether you're making a candle for personal use or as a heartfelt gift, the process is a soul-soothing experience that resonates deeply within the human spirit.
