Masterclass for Natural Candle Makers [in-store] (11am-2:30pm)
CREATE AND LAUNCH YOUR OWN RETAIL AROMATHERAPY WOOD-WICK CANDLES
Dreaming of creating and launching your own hand-poured retail candle line? Creating a successful all-natural candle line requires three key skills: Raw Ingredients Knowledge, Candle Formulation skills and Business/Retail strategy skills. This course teaches you all three. This course focuses strictly on aromatherapy for scent (not synthetic fragrance) and wood-wicks (not cotton). Ready to start? Let’s go!
The first step in creating all-natural candles is understanding your candle ingredients. Like our skincare line, we make our retail aromatherapy candle line using strictly 100% raw real and sustainable ingredients. We use therapeutic-grade organic essential oils as opposed to synthetic toxic fragrant oils. We also natural waxes and FSC certified wood wicks for their specific beneficial properties and unique selling features; and luxury candle vessels. Aside from learning how to design, create, test and care for your specialty candle you will learn how to launch your candles into the retail marketplace. We teach everything you need to know to get into stores the likes of Whole Foods Market– from branding and marketing, to retail labels and pricing, to distribution and pitching to buyers.
Come spend a few hours at Nuworld Botanicals flagship store in Downtown Oakville for our hands-on Candle Makers Masterclass. Explore our Raw Candle Bar where we carry of wide variety of candle making ingredients (and accessories) including natural waxes like virgin coconut-soy wax and apricot-creme wax; crackling eco wood wicks in all shapes and colours; modern candle vessels; wax seals; eco-candle colouring; candle snuffers, wick trimmers and more.
You’ll be presented with a Certificate of Completion and take home the candle you make on the day. You can be sure to receive valued guidance from the team of business and wellness professionals at Nuworld Botanicals. We encourage you to bring your own candle product if you’d like our professional feedback.
