Emily went above and beyond for my girlfriend and I. When I realized I booked a time slot that was going to make it difficult to get to my next reservation on time she quickly responded and offered another time slot that better suited my needs. From the minute we arrived at Emily’s home studio, I felt welcome and comfortable; which is almost hard to come by in this day in age. Emily led the class wonderfully and was patient with the two of us by offering her advice when needed; even though we were very indecisive. We felt like Emily truly took the time to get to know us and the scents that we liked. She gave us information on how and where to buy materials for candle making. We talked, we shared stories, we laughed, and we created candles! It was so much fun to be able to create something to take home! 10/10 would recommend to anyone; young or old!
