What Our Friends Are Saying

I had so much fun! Sesselie taught our class. She was very informative, and has such a friendly, outgoing personality! Definitely makes you feel welcomed! Perfect activity for a girl's night out or a date night! As soon as I got home I burned my candle and it smelled soooo good, my husband loved the scent too. I plan on returning and recommending to friends and family! I am already thinking of all the other scents I want to make! Thank you Sesselie! - Courtney

My sisters and I had a Wonderful time today making candles. Sesselie was a joy to learn from. The story of the candles and the love that goes into the making was a great experience. Wide variety of smells, there’s something for everybody to enjoy. Covid precautions were in place and included us wearing gloves. We only took our masks off to take a photo. Tables are spaced a part, we were very comfortable! It was such a lovely experience and I felt safe while doing it. I highly recommend doing this, would be wonderful for friends, date night, and teenagers. And Sesselie made the experience fun and exciting. I will definitely be returning! - Lauren

This was the perfect date night! My husband and I did one of the candle making classes this evening and had a blast! Such a unique and creative way to spend the evening. We also got to test out our sniffers on several scented oils to pick our favorite for our candle. We did the whole process ourselves as guided by our instructor. It was also a great atmosphere to mingle with other people in the class and the icebreaker at the beginning made for good conversation starters. The business is locally owned / veteran owned / family business, a great asset to downtown! The staff was very friendly and personable. The quality of products are top notch. We will for sure be coming back with a larger group. This would be great for a corporate event, girls night, etc. SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESSES! Thank you for a memorable evening! - Katie
