Create, combine, and choose your favorite scents while learning the basics of fragrance composition. After you've whipped up your new favorite fragrance oil, I'll show you the process of how to create a candle. Each guest will get to choose their container from a selection of colorful vessels. Then you will mix your fragrance with warm wax, stir, pour, and wait to cure!

While we wait for our candles to cure (~1.5hr), it is time to chat and chill! There will be an assortment of refreshments and light appetizers for guests to enjoy as we explain the differences between clean and toxic fragrances + a brief history of the art and science of perfumery.

Additionally, guests can also design a personalized label on-site! Leave home with not only a custom candle with food and friends, but a new knowledge of candle making!

Malibu Apothecary was inspired by Founder Claire Ellis’s love for travel, wellness, and all things luxury. This passion for travel led her all around the globe. From spending months living on the Côte d'Azur to solo trips exploring Asia, Claire believed no beach should be left unexplored. Based on the science that scent is the strongest trigger of memory, Claire started pouring candles as a hobby in her Southern California apartment in between her travels, aiming to capture the spirit of the places she visited through fragrance. Here, she discovered the toxicity and unethical standards prevalent throughout the candle industry.

Specifically, she discovered that most candle brands use paraffin, a petroleum by-product that comes in the form of a black sludge found at the bottom of oil barrels. This wax is bleached white using 10x the concentration of our household bleach. When this wax is burned, carcinogenic chemicals, known to cause health problems, are released with toxins into our home. Claire knew there must be a better way to enjoy not only candles but life. Thus, she strived to create a product that promoted both a cleaner Earth and cleaner living without having to compromise on price, scent, or experience.

After early production led to a few small fires, some stained wood floors, and a lost rent deposit, Malibu Apothecary candles now use clean-burning coconut wax and sustainably sourced essential oil-infused fragrances to support their mission of creating cleaner candles for a cleaner Earth. Additionally, 20% of sales are donated directly to coastal conservation efforts. These coastal candles take the names and notes of these places, working with the local communities of these exotic locales such as the Cayman Islands Board of Tourism, to create scents that will transport you through candlelight to a beach far away.

Today, Malibu Apothecary crafts olfactory experiences through their transportive fragrances that capture Claire’s cultivated passion for travel and clean, non-toxic living.
