I had never made my own candles and this was fun! So many scents it gets a little overwhelming and it's hard to figure out what you like and to narrow it down to a few scents - but the ladies at the counter do a good job at guiding you and putting the scents together. I thought it was... More

We were excited to create our own candle. We were even more excited when we walked in the shop and saw the huge number of scents to try and figure out our favorite ones. We grew confused when we started smelling the candles and could not smell anything. Was it just us? Were we doing something wrong? I asked one... More

My fiancé and I wanted to take back a unique gift to family from our travels to Columbus, OH. The atmosphere is very relaxing and therapeutic. It's a great way to interact together while also showing your unique qualities and preferences in smells. It was an activity I would have never thought of doing but something I would definitely do...

I LOVE candles! The Candle lab has the best candles ever! I love being able to create my own scent and pour it into any sized candle container. The candles burn clean and last a long time!! Great place

Such a fun activity to do with family and friends. We needed to kill a few hours, and this proved to be the perfect time-consumer. All 8 of us loved our candles and the whole experience. Would go back for sure!

Make your own candles, salts or melts. Many scents to choose from (and they change with the season). Staff helps you narrow it down to two or three. Color a label, mix your scents the way you like them and stir the wax. You end up with a high quality candle and your art fix satisfied. It takes a few... More

Traditional candle jars, but lots and lots of scents (100+ I think). I chose Mug & Brush which was a clean shave smell. Nice gift packaging.

I made my first candle with a girl I was nannying. She had a gift card so we spent the afternoon making candles. I liked the self serve idea and got to pick my scents. I made a muskier candle and hers was fruity. It didn't take too long for them to cool. The candle lasts a while, just like... More

My children surprised me for Mother's Day by taking me to The Candle Lab. What fun! Making my own candle with scent combinations that I picked out was great, and the people working there were very helpful in suggesting what scents would work well together. We were able to make our own candles, right down to creating the label to... More

I brought a group of ladies by in September. The ladies there were fully prepared and had everyone done within an hour. WOW! All of our candles turned out great, we received excellent customer service, and were very pleased with the entire experience. Can't wait to go back and make another candle!
