Commonwealth Candle Bar

COMMONWEALTH CANDLE BAR

WHAT IS THE CANDLE BAR?

Come pour your own candle with us! This isn't a candle making workshop. This is a candle making experience. You will choose your own vessel, choose your own scent blend, and pour a candle that is uniquely yours. 

THE PROCESS

You'll start by smelling through our selection of scents. You'll select the ones you want to mix together for your custom candle. Then you'll choose which vessel you'd like to make your own. 

Once you have everything selected, it's time to mix your own unique scent blend and pour your candle! 

The entire process takes 30-45 minutes. This is perfect for date night, family day, girls night, corporate team building, bridal showers, baby showers, etc. Kids 10 and older are welcome at the candle bar accompanied by an adult. 

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I POUR MY CANDLE?

Your candle will need 60-90 minutes to harden enough to take with you. While you're waiting for your candle to cure, you are welcome to shop with the other businesses and artists around Mellwood, visit Danny Mac's for a bite to eat, or visit Butchertown Brewing for a drink.

You are also welcome to pick up your candle later on or we can ship it to you for a $4 fee. 

We ask that you arrive at least 2 hours prior to closing if you plan on taking your candle with you the same day. 

ARE RESERVATIONS NEEDED?

No, reservations are not required. You are welcome to walk in and pour a candle. 

If you have a group larger than 10 people, please contact us for a reservation.
