A Candle Making Experience at R.Haus

I can't believe how the popularity of our candle making work x shops has taken us by surprise. I've been making candles for 20yrs, I  have always had a vision to create a boutique that revolved around relaxation, comfort and living a life filled with peace and joy. 

Well that's what candles and a little retail therapy have done for me all these years. Between prayer and the flicker of a candle I could always feel a sense of calm add in a little Sade or Diana Krall and my life was instantly uplifted. Because I suffer from a mild case of anxiety I had to find something that aided in my ability to manage my stress. I love essential oils, eucalyptus and lavender are my two favorite fragrances and that was the beginning of my journey.. I started getting into essential oils years ago  with my mom who makes bath and body products. Together we would talk hours about blending and mixing fragrances. We actually had a custom perfume bar with over 50 fragrances in my very first store. 

On a whim, a customer who is now a friend by the name of Marla encourage me to do a candle making work x shop. Begrudgingly I obliged her but I thought to myself " How am I going to do a candle making work x shop" My mom in the past has insisted that I do a candle making workshop and I was always like. Nope, too much work, no one wants to make candles, too messy, nope I'm good. Well we all know mom knows best.

I carefully planned my first work x shop. Again I thought to myself, no one is going to RSVP and if they do they're not going to show up. Haha I was so wrong. Not only did everyone  RSVP, everyone showed up! I. Boy was I wrong! The workshop was the best experience ever.. It was effortless, fun, inspiring and everyone left feeling a sense of confidence having created  something from their hands was truly magical. 

Because of the overwhelming popularity, I had ladies dm'ing me to sign up for the next glass. Haha what next glass? I wasn't planning on doing another class. This one was a fluke. It was an amazing experience but no one is going to come to  the next class. Wow little did I know. Not only was my next class sold out I added another class until the end of November and that class is sold out as well. 

I realized that candles are universal. For me it's more about the light  the candle represented  God's word says 

Matthew 5:16

16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

With all that said I have added three additional dates for our Candle Making Work x Shop.
