Question from Manuel R.
Hi. Do I need all those materials for the class or I can just record it and take notes on the process to make the candles later?
Question from Anonymous
In this class, will we be making candles that when burned, the melted wax can be used as massage oil?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! No, the candles made in this class would be standard (generally soy wax) candles. They are not designed for massage use.

Excellent class! Instructor provided straightforward instructions and explained in detail the whole process. We, participants, received valuable coaching. I was afraid I would never make candles at home, but after this class, I was able to make them at home.
