Container Candle Making for Business - online course

Candle manufacturer


So, you want to build your Home Fragrance brand!

In times where everything is very competitive, you have to get ahead of your game. You are ambitious, creative and ready for change. Now more than ever is the right time to start your new venture.

Becoming a Chandler (Candle Maker) takes time and experience but this online course will give you all the information you will need to progress much faster.

Yes, you can watch videos on You Tube and join Social Media groups but you will get overwhelmed with too many conflicting reports or other people’s opinions. It’s better to learn from a business already having great success!

I started my business a few years ago and first sold at Artisan fairs, my business has grown immensely and now I provide products for many other businesses, alongside offering workshops and events, both in and outside my studio.

Candle manufacturing is worth over £2.4 billion in the UK alone, growing at around 10% each year. If you have a unique and original product then, the only limit is yourself.

This course is on a platform designed to enable you to go at your own pace, you may take a day or two or a whole year, it is split into easy to understand modules with videos and downloads to help with all your candle making requirements.

There is an extra bonus a 'Talking Scents' Power Hour with me. In the session we can cover any topic you wish relevant to your business, either via Zoom or a phone call. Worth £129

What we cover:

Introduction - what's your idea, your niche, your hopes and desires

The science, limbic system, Aromatherapy v Aromachology

Wax, wicks, containers, equipment, suppliers

Legislation, product safety, insurance, testing, records

Practical Session - make container candles in different sizes

Packaging, branding, marketing, pricing for retail and wholesale, ideal client and where are they.

You can contact me at any stage for further guidance.

I really enjoyed my time with Jane I left the session feeling really confident and ready to get started. I had learnt things that I didn’t even know about which was really useful and helped me not waste any time. The legal side was really informative and I was given a booklet to take home so I can always refer back to this. The sandwiches and teas throughout the day were excellent great service. Will be definitely keeping in contact with Jane for my future development would highly recommend this course for anyone thinking about doing this. Just go for it!! Thanks again Jane.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Jane it wasn't like being on a course at all she was so friendly and approachable right from the start . She was easy to talk to and I felt I could ask her questions, she was so helpful and and at the end I had a clear idea on what to do next in setting up my own business. She has promised to keep in touch to see how I'm getting on and has said I can contact her for further advice. When I left I had the feeling that she genuinely wants me succeed.

I would recommend this course especially for the branding legal side of things which she explained so even I could understand them ! Thank you Jane for a brilliant day.

Response from The Scent Styling Company:

Recently went on this course. Jane was excellent in her knowledge and guidance.
I'm a complete novice and Jane made me feel comfortable. She guided me through the making process with a great outcome.
I feel more confident now in the legislation and health and safety guidelines.
Thank you Jane, will stay in touch!

I've recently attended a day with Jane, I decided to take the course having looked around for a long time at alternatives as I wanted to learn as much as I could in one course.
The information that Jane supplies is second to non and because it's a one to one it was tailored to my business needs. I now feel so much more confident to start up my own business knowing that Jane will give me continued support.
I highly recommend this course.

Response from The Scent Styling Company:

Thank you for your great review Suzanne, it was my pleasure to help you along on your journey and I’m sure you will be very successful.
