Candle Making Class: Join us at our new space in Edgewater for a candlemaking class! In our workshop, you will make two of our travel tin candles in a scent or scent blend of your choice. You'll be guided through the process of selecting your fragrance or creating a fragrance blend, preparing your materials, and pouring your soy wax and fragrance oil. You'll also create your own labels for your candles with provided art supplies. Ages 12 and up.
Scents: Both candles will be the same scent of your choosing. You can choose one of our 40+ fragrances like Cedar Lavender and Oakmoss & Amber, or you can try your hand at blending scents like combining Orange Rhubarb and Champagne for a Mimosa fragrance. For a a scent inspired by your astrological signs, choose fragrances from our ZODIAC collection. Combine your sun, moon, and rising sign scents for a combination all your own.
The class lasts for two hours. Each participant enjoys 20% off of everything in our store during the class.

What are your candles made from?
Edgewater Candles are made from midwestern soy wax, cotton wicks, and a blend of essential oils and phthalate-free scented oils. Using only these simple materials, with no additives or dyes, our candles are vegan, clean burning, long lasting, and cruelty-free.
Can I bring empty Mason Jars back for you to reuse or recycle?
Yes! When you return our containers to us for reuse or recycling, you'll get 10% off your purchase on the day you bring them back. Our store is located at 1050 W Bryn Mawr Ave. in Chicago, and we're open Wed - Sun, 12pm - 7pm.
How long do your candles last?
Our 12oz Mason Jar candles burn for approximately 75 hours, and our 6oz Travel Tins burn for approximately 35 hours. To get the longest burn time from your candle, allow the wax to melt across to all edges of the container before extinguishing. This will help avoid “tunneling”, which can prevent some of the wax from being used. Keeping the wick trimmed will also ensure a longer burn time.
Are your products made in the US?
Yes. We make our candles and all of our products by hand in Illinois.
