What I'll be crafting
Beeswax is the original candle wax and truly organic
candle wax (hence it’s the highest grade and most expensive candle wax); it has
been used for candles for more than a millennia.
The commonplace soy wax seen in most commercial scented candles nowadays are derived from the soy bean through a high number of chemical and physical processes. Soy wax is produced from soybean oil but may contain other non-organic ingredients, such as hexane. Hexane is a neurotoxin petrochemical solvent that is listed as a hazardous air pollutant with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Essential oils may contain phthalates, and recently there has been concern linking high levels of phtalates to health issues, especially in children. Moreover, essential oils are expensive, tend to evaporate when they are burned because the flash point is so low, and can’t throw a scent across the room as strongly as fragrance oils meant for candles.
Using phthalate-free candle fragrance oils or DIY oil infusions, participants can blend their own unique scents and create their own truly safe (and cheaper) organic aromatherapy candles along with their own fragrance oil reed diffusers, using readily available materials from local stores; soy wax is manufactured only in the United States and have to be imported.
This workshop is suitable for anyone who
is 12 years old and above.
About the instructor
Wen Yang is an ex-poly lecturer who founded Mojo Atelier. He used to teach digital media design. Moving design from the screen to physical crafts had always been an unfulfilled dream of his.
Being a little unorthodox, he likes to give a twist to tried-and-tested methods of crafting; to innovate new designs and products.
It's hard to break away from old habits, hence every new craft that has been learnt and mastered, is now transformed into a workshop to hand over this knowledge to the next passionate crafter.
