Wellbeing workshop- Introduction to Candle Making Workshop.

Wellbeing workshop- Introduction to Candle Making Workshop.


This workshop focussed on learning a new skill for a possible new hobby.

We created beautiful, scented candles to take home and enjoy. We also learned how to add dyes and fragrances into candle, and we gained more understanding of different waxes and their uses.


Why is this beneficial for your wellbeing? 

  • It is fun way to combat stress, loneliness, depression and can help individuals gain confidence.  
  • Scented candles can induce calm and help to alleviate symptoms of stress. 
  • It is fun to learn new skills that can applied when you are feeling low.


We created two different candles: 

·       Paraffin Wax Candle – scent of Fresia with red dye in the shape of a heart 

·       Soy Wax Candles – lemon scented in a glass jar

We would like to say the biggest thank you to Bonita Candles for providing this fun workshop, in particular the lovely Pauline who is fluent in BSL and was patient and awesome!

Thank you so much Pauline.
