Our BYOB Candle-Making Workshops are $25 per person. This includes the workshop and each participant will pour their own 9oz coconut wax candle.

Can I bring a group and host a party at your studio?
Yes! We love to host groups and celebrations. Our studio is popular for a variety of special events – bridal & baby showers, bachelorette parties, girls’ night out, book clubs, birthday parties, corporate team-building, and holiday gatherings.

Each child will blend their own custom scent, pour their own candle and decorate their bags and candle labels. The candles take about 1-2 hours to set (depending on candle size). Continue the fun in the neighborhood - adventure abounds!

Yes! We love to help support quality organizations and can do this in two great ways.
We're happy to host a "benefit day" at our studio on a mutually agreeable day (Tuesday-Friday). Through your marketing efforts, you spread the word and invite all your friends/family/general public to come! We host and provide your organization with 10% of all sales from the day.
And, we can provide your group with an order form featuring our most popular pre-poured 8 oz candles. Your group sells the candles & we provide the candles to your organization for a discounted fee. Your organization sets the selling price and keeps the profit.

In both of our studio locations, Central West End and Historic St. Charles. And, online!
Our entire collection of fragrances are available in our online shop. Choose from 100+ scents to be blended into your choice of premium product: a natural, soy-wax candle, wax tarts or spa salts. Each product is handmade in our St. Louis and St. Charles studios.
