About the Course
A one day workshop with Sophia Russell, founder of Hestia’s Flame Natural Candles. Come and learn about different methods of candle making and why natural is best! We will be making to take home two different aromatherapy container candles, a soy wax pillar candle and a pair of soy wax taper candles. You will also have the opportunity to work on your own bespoke aromatherapy blend which you may transform into a candle at a later stage.
Tutor: Sophia Russell
All abilities welcome
Sophia runs Hestia’s Flame Natural candles, they make aromatherapy candles from 100% soy wax and pure essential oils. Sophia says “I really love candles. Always did; especially ones that smell nice.
So, as you might imagine, I was very concerned to learn that most of them are not at all good for you. I have four children and a husband with asthma and could not, in all conscience, burn mineral wax candles any longer. And so Hestia’s Flame was lit! I decided to make my own lovely, positive and beneficial candles.
