CREATE AND LAUNCH YOUR OWN RETAIL-READY AROMATHERAPY WOOD-WICK CANDLE LINE
Turn your love for candles into a brand! Join us at my Raw Candle Bar and learn how to make retail-ready Aromatherapy Candles for your business. If you already have a pulse on the candle market, you know that wellness candles are the next big thing. Today’s health-conscious candle lover is seeking out candles (much like they do diffusers) to enhance their environment and their well-being (think Meditation Candles for homes and spas). Our well-being has now become one of our top priorities, and we must always make sure it is taken care of properly. One way to do that, is by burning wellness candles.
This Masterclass focuses on how to create candles to meet this growing consumer demand using curated signature ingredients with air-purifying and healing properties. Specifically, you will work with mood-boosting essential oils, clean-burning wax blends, gemstones and crystals and non-toxic crackling wood-wicks that are biodegradable and environmentally safe. From aromatherapy knowledge to labelling to branding, we’ve got you covered in candle goodness! Ready to start?
Come tour my Raw Candle Bar and experience the beauty and efficacy of pure essential oils and natural waxes like apricot-coconut-soy. I will walk you through my retail Aromatherapy Candle Collection— from Sweet Dreams to Meditation to Stress Relief these candles represent a lifestyle, not just a product (key!). You will create your own unique aromatherapy blend, choose from a wide array of luxurious glass vessels, crackling wooden wick styles and eco-wax colours. Get my personal insider tips and strategies for starting and growing a retail candle brand in today’s market. I’ve successfully sold my products in Whole Foods Market, Chapters Indigo and The Shopping Channel for 7 years and now I’m breaking it all down for you. I know what buyers want, and I know what it takes to get on the retail shelf (and stay there!).
This course is filled with practical and proven business lessons, advice, recipe tutorials and demonstrations. You’ll be presented with a Certificate of Completion and make your very own aromatherapy wood-wick candle.
