1. Sentimental Value

As Gel Candles are entirely personalized, you can design and construct the candle to your preference in every way. From the scent, colour to the candle’s appearance, you have complete control of the process of making it. This provides an opportunity for you to gift an incredibly sentimental and meaningful gift to your friends or loved ones, especially if you’re aware of what they like and enjoy. By the end of the session, package it well, and you’re done! The person receiving the gift would no doubt appreciate the thought and work behind it.

2. Great Decor Piece

You can decorate your Diy candles on shelves or desks in offices or homes; candles will instantly brighten the decor by adding some colour and texture. During the evening, candles, when burned, would provide a warm and comforting environment that allows you to luxuriate and unwind after a hard day’s work. It also provides a more welcoming atmosphere when guests come around. As such, candles are not just great decorative pieces but also practical. What’s not to love?

3. Health Benefits

To cut things short, gel candles carry many health benefits as it’s not only all-natural and paraben-free but also non-toxic! It’s largely made from natural minerals, so when you’re burning it, you’re not ingesting all the toxins and harmful chemicals that come with regular candles.

4. Environmentally-Friendly

Regular candles are largely made up of paraffin, which produces harmful toxic substances when burned. Thus, a selection of gel candles as a present would be better, as it is both benefitial to health and environmentally friendly. Gel candles consist of 95% mineral oil and 5% polymer resin; gel wax is a rubbery and transparent mixture. The polymer resin is used to thicken the mineral oil to add the properties true to gel wax; long burn time and clear look. Getting your hands on a gel wax is better for the other person and the environment!

5. Gel Candle Workshops

Our Candle Making Workshop is all about creativity & fun. Bring your friends or dates to a stress- free gel candle making workshop for their birthdays. Allow them to infuse a relaxing atmosphere into their homes or office. Building a unique gift with their own two hands, promoting positive energy and adds creativity into the gifts
