Like Good Scents? A Missouri Do-It-Yourself Candle Bar Is Now Open!
As we get into the holiday season, many of you may be thinking about who you need to buy gifts for this Christmas. Sometimes it is easy to do, sometimes it is hard. If you have someone who is hard to shop for, maybe this could be an activity that can kill two birds with one stone, and it will make your place smell a little better too.
Heirloom Candle Bar celebrated its grand opening on Thursday night, but the new business festivities will continue throughout the weekend. The candle bar is located at 1423 E. Cherry St. Suite 101 in Springfield. This is a pour-your-own candle experience and you get to create your own from beginning to end.
Everything is interactive, and here is how it breaks down. You will choose a 'vessel' and there will be about 30 different options. You will need to choose your fragrance oils and there will be about 50 different scents there.
Next, guests pour their own wax, place the wick, mix everything together and create a unique name for their candle. Instructions are available at workstations, but Heirloom staff will also be available to answer questions. The experience shouldn't take more than 30 minutes, but give yourself about 2 hours for total completion and then you can pick them up.
Heirloom offers a soy, coconut wax blend. Soy wax lasts longer and coconut wax has a wider "scent throw," which means the wax puts more scent into a room while burning. Guests can also bring their own vessel.
