Sharon at Belisama Candles was really accommodating and presented an interesting, informative course in a very personable way. Great knowledge of the subject and fab instruction. We had a great fun time and we’re overjoyed with our fantastic candles to take home. Would
highly recommend.

I have always loved fragranced candles and my house is usually full of them. I went on a candle making course at Belisama Candles and Sharon the owner was fantastic. She explained everything in detail and demonstrated how to make the candles of your choice . She has a wide variety of ideas, oils and many more items to make and also to purchase. These candles have a wonderful everlasting fragrance that burns for a long time.
I would definitely recommend any purchase for gifts for your home and have a go at attending the course. It's amazing how they are made. From beginning to end, perfect. Thankyou Sharon. X

Response from Belisama Candles:
