The value of these products is over $140. Approximately 1kg of wax, wicks, wick stickers, caution stickers, fragrance, an instructional workbook (via email) and more are all included. We are flexible, this is your private class so if you want to bring vessels for filling you are welcome. The best way to learn is practice. Additional wax and scent is available for $45 per kg. Please note our handmade ceramic candle bowls are not included.
We are very careful about the ingredients we use (eg. no Rosemary essential oil) but if you are under 3 months pregnant we recommend to stay at home, put your feet up and play it safe. Essential and fragrance oils will be used in this class.
If time allows we will do a little candle decorating with flowers and crystals. We do private classes just on this subject if you are interested. The reason for this is that the time we have is limited and the candles you make may not be ready for decorating. We also want to ensure you can safely take your candles home at the end of the class if possible.
