A candle making factory

This weekend I turned my studio into a factory to make soy wax candles.
The smell of the candles are mesmerizing.
I poured 36 candles and now almost half of them are packaged and decorated.
I still need to do the rest before Saturday!


Soy wax turns into an oil when heated. It is a wonderful moisturizer
and can be applied directly to the skin. Unlike a normal paraffin wax candle.
The soy wax also melts at 39° C. It is warm when melted in this way, but never hot.


Benice designed the labels, which looks very elegant! I still need to
punch out some more labels to cover the candles.
OK....
(deep breath!)


These Winnie the Pooh little honey jars will be filled with hot chocolate and
other goodies to make a wonderful bedtime treat after a long cold day.

Benice and Jaclyn are working on the kits for Saturdays class.
The Spa Package and Recipe Folder.
Jaclyn has a wonderful prize from Fiskars
which will go home with one of you lucky ladies. 

We are all excited to see you there!
