Candle Making at Palmetto Scent Studio

This past weekend I got all my Mother’s Day quality time in with the kiddos starting with the newly opened Palmetto Scent Studio at Freshfields Village.  This place is not your standard candle shop, they host candle making classes that are perfect for kids, a girls night out, date night, birthday parties or a bachelorette party.  Another great thing about their classes is that drop-ins are welcome so you can swing by anytime they’re open to make your custom candle.

They have so many yummy scents to choose from and it was hard to narrow it down to just 3 for our candle.  You can sniff scents from their pre-made candles in everything from basil to bubble gum.

Then you get to choose from any glass or tin container you want your candle poured into.  The beauty of the glass containers is that you can re-purpose it after you burn the candle down.

It’s no surprise my boys chose the sweet smelling scents that make you hungry. Mateo chose cake, whipped cream, and maple syrup.  Sebastian chose bubble gum, maple syrup, and cake.  My hubby Gus made the “munchies” candle which consisted of cannabis, bacon, and cake.  I chose an herbal selection of basil, rosemary, and mint to break up all the desserts we’ll be inhaling.

Palmetto Scent Studio uses a soy wax and cotton wicks for a clean burn.

It probably took us longer to decide what scents we were going to mix than it did to actually make the candle.

The owners Glenda and Jeff were so helpful with the whole process and so passionate about their business.  I love promoting local businesses, especially when it’s run by a husband and wife team.  In a world where retail has been moving towards more online shopping it’s so nice to experience something like this at Palmetto Scent Studio and actually hang out with the owners.  So give them a visit and tell them that the Curator sent you!
