The London Refinery crafts natural scented candles by blending essential oils and soy wax. Their aim is to bring nature’s work into the modern-day by creating simple, healthy and natural candles that are free from petrochemicals and synthetic fragrances. Each of their candles has a refined scent to create different emotions and enhance wellbeing.
In this online course + kit, through step-by-step instructions and accompanying photographs, Lucy, the founder of The London Refinery, will guide you through the process of making their 'Relax', Lavender, Rose Geranium natural soy wax candle at home - in the same way they hand pour their candles at The London Refinery.
All the essential oils have a very subtle effect and are not overpowering like the chemical candle fragrances. You can use your candle in different scenarios or spaces around the room to achieve refreshing, relaxing or inspiring space. The candle consists of 100% soy wax and pure essential oils, and has a 40 hour burn time.
This course + kit comes with everything you need in order to get started right away.
