Candle Craft and KCCA Certification

Updated: Oct 4, 2021

#Candlemaking originated from the ancient times where the people used it to light places up after dark. The presence of candles were crucial of course, since light was always necessary. There are many different types of candles that you can create in candle craft. Little is known about the real origin of candle making, but historians have found that many candles were made from natural sources such as animal fat, tree nuts and wicked using plants and wood. Animal-based fat that burned in candles released unpleasant and acrid scents. Candles later grew to be made with more sophisticated materials such as beeswax. In the 20th century, candles became a popular gift for many occasions, which led to a rise of cheap materials such as paraffin. A study has shown that paraffin gives off harmful fumes (toluene and benzene) which are carcinogenic, and linked to asthma and lung cancer. This is why at HappyTogetherParty, we believe in using only the most wholesome materials.

All our materials are mostly natural, vegan, and cruelty-free. We only use paraffin wax in decorative candles, not meant for burning!

The art of candle-making has changed over the years where candles are no longer just used to light up places but also to gift others, setting the ambiance and freshening up a room.

Candle craft is very versatile! One can use similar materials to create different types of candles such as simple tealight candles, pillar candles and even diffusers! Modern fusion candle craft has transformed the traditional art of candle making into one that incorporates modern techniques such as including 3D art and edible-looking designs!

Did you know that humans are affected by scents? Different scents can take you to a different place or remind you of a certain memory. Have you ever recalled about a certain memory after smelling some scents?
