Q: How much is the deposit?

A: We require a $35 deposit + GST per person for class for every booking.


Q: How can I pay the deposit?

A: We accept e-transfer for deposit payment.


Q: Is the deposit going to be deducted?

A: The deposit is a part of the class price, it will be deducted from your final DIY class price!


Q: If I pay 2 deposits, but I come alone, can I use the other deposit as the final payment?
A: A customer CANNOT pay two deposits and ends up making a product without paying the rest of the fee.  Our deposit and remaining fees for DIY classes are charged on an individual basis, not on a total price basis. EX: The price of a product is $88, of which $35 is a deposit. However, the total price of one product can only deduct one deposit. 



Q: I can’t make it on time for the class, what should I do?

A: Please contact us about it, but if you are late for over 15 minutes, the class will be automatically canceled.


Q: When will I know if my class is canceled if I’m booking for 1 person?

A: We will let you know 1 day before the store closes.


Q: Can you refund my deposit if I cancel my class?

A: Unfortunately, the deposit is non-refundable. If you would like to reschedule your class 3 days before your class, it is possible. However, if you cancel your class on the same day or 2 days before, you will have to repay the deposit for the new session.


In fairness to all of our customers, we are unable to make exceptions to our policy, including for reasons of illness, travel, or work hours. If you are unable to attend a class at the last minute, we suggest giving your spot to a friend or family member.

Detailed Info:

Q: What is the difference between Soy Candle and Gel Candle?

A: Gel Candle is more for decoration use. You can burn it and there are some scents in the candle without aromatherapy effect.

Soy Candles are more beneficial to the human body. When you burn the candle, the aromatherapy will relax your body!


Q: I want to do candle and perfume/diffuser class at the same time, is it possible?

A: Sorry, the equipment and scents that we are using for candle and perfume/diffuser class are different. So, you cannot do candle and perfume/diffuser class at the same time.


Q: Is there any extra charge from the price listed?

  • Flower and decor in perfume/diffuser: $2
  • Essential Oil: $5-$10
  • Extra Scents: $2 per scent
  • Diffuser Sticks with flower decoration: $1-5


Q: What are the differences of the size of the containers?

A: For example, the 50 mL room diffuser would be suitable for a small room to bathroom and it will last for 2-3 months. The 100mL room diffuser is suitable for small room to medium size room and it will last for 3-4 months. The main difference is the usage time period.


Q: I really like the scents from this specific brand, can I make the exact same scent?

A: We can recreate the similar scent by their top, mid and base notes. However, it will not be 100% the same.


Q: For the products that are in a set of 2 (eg. Plain Jars for Candle class), can 2 people make one item each?

A: No, the products that are in the set are considered as 1 item. So, each person has to make one item for themselves.


Q: How many scents can I mix in one item?

A: We suggest 1-3 scents per item. You can add more scents for extra charge, but we don’t recommend to mixed too many different scents together for people who are experiencing it for the first time.


Q: How many flowers can I add to my product?

A: There is no limitation, but try not to waste the flowers :)


Q: I want a private group.

A: We have a minimum charge for a private group of at least 5 people in one group.

If not enough people, they still need to pay for 5 people price as well. deposit also 5ppl

For example, 2 ppl want private group candle making, they need make 10 candle (total price: $78x5, deposit :$35x5)
