Candle-Making Workshop with Candlefish

Last Wednesday I had the pleasure of attending a candle-making workshop for local bloggers at one of Charleston's newest stores off of King Street called Candlefish.   This is the cutest shop filled with a nice variety of candles and gifts suitable for women and men.

Lovely group of Charleston Bloggers

We poured a glass of wine to sip on and started off at the scent library, which is a beautiful display of numbered scents. We each had a "library card" and were able to go through and smell several different candles and make notes on our cards in order to remember which ones we liked best.

There were so many great smelling scents to choose from. 

After narrowing it down we then located the oil that matched our scent and proceeded with what looked like a school chemistry project.

 Next we measured out just the right amount of wax.

And the candle making began.....

I chose #40 and #60 for my scents. One has more of a floral scent and the other has somewhat of a masculine smell to it.

Once our candles were poured we spent some time browsing around the store.
