The best smelling conference room in San Francisco

Today's candle making work shop with Lighten Up Shoppe was so much fun!
We squeezed 18 of the nicest, most easy going people in the Bay Area (including 2 from San Jose) into the lovely and very professional looking meeting room at Hotel G San Francisco. Once Joy and her students were done with their work, that conference room was definitely the best smelling room that's ever held a business meeting.

People got seriously creative! Ever smelled a peppermint and sweet pear candle? Maybe if you're very lucky Joy's genius student will gift it to you instead of keeping it for herself. Other flights of fancy included Eucalyptus + Peppermint and a blend named Hawaiian Holiday.  
We're already plotting when to bring Joy back to teach her candle magic to even more people. Be sure to subscribe to our email newsletter or keep in touch with us (shopmerch) on Instagram or Facebook to get all the details for all our workshops.
 Ace student Marcia wrote in with her review of the class: "What fun I had learning how to make soy candles with the very talented Joy at Lighten Up Shoppe. The citrus cilantro, sweet pear, and coconut lime verdana oils I added were my faves, and I really love lighting my candles and enjoying these wonderful scents. I just ordered a candle making kit, and I can't wait to start putting my new hobby to use!"
