In general, lighting candles really does make a house a home. Soy candles allow you to do so even more responsibly. They’re environmentally friendly, and they even burn longer (which, in the long run, is great for your wallet). Mindy Jovanovic of Peace, Love, and Soy Wax will teach you how to make your own at a special workshop on Sunday, March 26 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $25 and participants will leave the workshop with two 4-ounce candles. As an added bonus, the workshop will take place at the beautiful HI–Sacramento Hostel (located at 925 H St.). Check out to find a link to the event page, where you’ll be able to purchase a ticket.
