The kids and I just had to check out Candle Kitchen in Grand Junction, CO to create our own personalized scented soy candles. This was such a fun and unique experience! If you’re ever in the area, we highly recommend it.
There were over 100 different scents to sample. Each kiddo took a mini clipboard and a “recipe card” to jot down his/her favorite scents.
Next we chose the candle containers. If you want, you can bring in your own container.
Finally, we took our “recipe” cards to the mixing counter where the talented staff helped us decide on the perfect scent combinations. Thank goodness we got some direction from the experts with this part. The kiddos got to measure the scented oils and mix the oils into the melted soy wax.
Once our candles were poured and the scents were mixed in, we ran some errands and picked up our custom candles the same day.
Here are the custom scents we created today.
dark chocolate + caramel + coconut = B named this one “Chocolate Box”
black cherry + sugar cookie
lavender + bubble gum
sugar cookie + caramel + whipped cream = K named this one “Birthday Dessert”
pine needles + honeycrisp apple = S named this one “Pine-Apple” (lol)
burnt sugar + caramel + peach
I wish I could post the scents on the blog for you to smell! We had so much fun on our outing here today!
