Candle Making at Manitou Candle Co.

Rikki Teeters

Today we ventured along the Ohio River in Cincinnati to find the cutest little candle shop, Manitou Candle Co.! We had a wonderful time making our own candles during their Weekend Candle Making Workshop! Mantiou is a unique Ohio-based shop that sells their own small batch handmade candles along with beautiful jewelry, accessories and locally made art work.

Our workshop instructor, Alli, explained that at Manitou the candles are labeled by number instead of by name. This allows people to select new scents that they are drawn to instead of scents that they typically select. Manitou has 100 different scents and we got to smell them all! During our class we learned how to make our own Natural Soy Candles! It was a delightful experience and we definitely recommend it!
