What you'll do

During this experience, you will make a one-of-a-kind Philadelphia-inspired candle. Each of our scents is named after Philadelphia neighborhoods and each reservation helps plant a tree in Philadelphia. You will be able to choose your own scents, candle jars, and dyes! Each candle is also made of 100% soy wax and pet and vegan-friendly.

Some quick information about the experience:

The candle making experience is done as group instruction. To ensure all of our guests enjoy their experience, please arrive on time. You are considered a no-show after 10 minutes past your reservation time.

No outside food as this will interfere with the scent picking portion, but we are BYOB!

The candles take 2 hours to dry and we hold them for up to four weeks. There are lots of awesome things to do in the area while you wait and we have lots of recommendations, but we also have shipping options if needed.

To comply with Philadelphia mandate starting 2022 proof of vaccination (picture or vaccination card) is required. Please see phila.gov for further information on the mandate.

I am uniquely qualified to host this experience because I'm the owner of a zero-waste candle company. I have been making candles for years, so I'm pretty familiar with the process. I am also a Philadelphia local, and I know all of the ends and outs of the city so please let me know if you need any recommendations.

    This was such a fun and unique experience. I highly recommend. Perfect activity to do all year around, and especially in the colder months.

    this was a cool one hour class to explore candle making. Given it's an hour, starting on time is imperative. Overall the host was thorough in explaining the process and guiding the group.

    This was a great class! Love being able to support a local small business! You get to choose your own scents and mix them and also you can choose your own color of wax. The best part was being able to also make your own seltzer drink flavor!

    Jordan clearly explained the candle making process and we got to choose our own jar and scents. The shop is beautiful and it's in a great location. I recommend doing this with a group and bringing a game or something to do while you wait for the candle to set. The candle does not take very long to make.

    Definitely recommend to my solo travelers like myself and to those who are seeking something to do with their friends or significant others. Support small businesses making big platform changes in a quiet way!

    Candle making was much easier than I expected. Jordan provided easy to follow directions and was very helpful throughout the event. I would definitely do it again.
