'Thank you so very much Lisa Marie for the recent stunning candlemaking workshop! You blew me away with not only your beautiful personality but your natural gifts and talents. You welcomed me with open arms and together we spent a magical afternoon where you fully supported me in making hand poured natural candles that smell divine. Not only did I learn all about this wonderful practice of candlemaking but I felt such a close connection to plants and the earth thanks to you. You really did plug me back into my magic! I took 2 beautiful candles home even before lighting them their fragrance has filled the house. I highly recommend this workshop! 💗💗💗'
