Have you ever wondered where the phrase “home sweet home” originated? History has shown that in America during the 19th century there was a song titled no other then, Home Sweet Home. And, this phrase is also quite popular for many home décor items as well. So, no matter how far you travel, or how amazing your end destination is, there is always a piece of you that longs to be, home sweet home. This happy place scent is so soothing and inviting, you will want to kick those shoes off and sit in your favorite chair. This fragrance will not disappoint, but instead have you coming back for more. Home Sweet Home Fragrance Oil is a keeper!

For those of you that are candle crafters or home scenters; our customers use this fragrance oil in their soy, palm, WOW, pillar of bliss, and Joy wax candles. This happy place scent has a very nice and strong throw in both hot and cold. As for other home scenting ideas; this Home Sweet Home fragrance has been used to make incense sticks and cones, aroma beads, smelly jellies, and potpourri. And, even more this fragrance oil can also be used in oil burners, reed diffusers, and odor refreshing sprays as well.

Highly Scented Hand Poured Candles

fragrance oils1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:  Hi! I’m Dorene Nowatzke and my company is D’Lites by Dorene!

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  My initial motivation to start a business was purely economical. Having my child move on to college meant a loss in income related to child support.  Additionally, my child’s moving on meant I had additional time available.  About the same time, I had started making candles as a hobby and found I had too many to burn myself or to give away. Opportunity presented itself, and I decided to take advantage of it!  I’ve now been in business for two years and have found my creativity for this business has only grown over time! There simply aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything!

3.  What products do you make and sell?  D’Lites by Dorene is your source for highly scented, hand poured candles and home fragrances. Candles range from 7 oz and 12 oz container candles, votives, tealights, and fragrance melts, and are complemented by products available in diffuser oils and fragrance sprays. My candles are a custom blend of paraffin and soy waxes. Paraffin is used to hold the strong colors you see and scents you smell. Soy is used to create a product more eco-friendly to our environment. Together, a quality product is created and tested to be the best possible for you and your home. Additionally, many of my fragrances are custom blends from core fragrance oils provided by Natures Garden.  I also create unique gift items such as rose petal soaps, all natural hand & foot balm, body sprays, and pine cone firestarters.

4.  What are your business goals?  My goals are to grow my business in order to provide a flexible schedule and income when my husband retires. I hope to grow my online presence by at least 25%, to double my bricks and mortar locations, and to add one or two wholesale representatives this year.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  By far my favorite products from Natures Garden are its fragrance oils. Its extensive product line provides many inspirations for new products for me to carry. I also use many of the bath and body bases as I dabble with increasing my product line in these areas.

Homemade Candles

Fragrance Oils1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name: Hartley House Candle Company

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  Looking back on how this journey began is sort of interesting. I suppose a piece of Hartley House Candle Company has always been with me in one way or another.

Nearly twenty years ago, I was away with a good friend of mine on a cabin camping trip. On one of our day adventures, we happened upon a small country candle store. Shelves upon shelves, bins upon bins of candles! Votives, pillars, tea lights, tapers, jars…it was a scent lover’s paradise! I was in awe! I remember filling trays with votives, determined to sample as many as I could not knowing if/when I’d get back there. I used those votives so sparingly because I enjoyed them so much I didn’t want to get to the last one.  Nearly ten years later, my passion for candles was firmly rooted. I hid them in my dorm room, I made sure I always had several I loved in my small apartment, etc. I was thrilled to supplement my teaching income working in a local Yankee Candle store, taking full advantage of the associate discount!  Then I met my husband, stopped teaching and entered into the corporate world, my means of relaxing was a soft smelling candle and warm bath. Soon after buying our house and getting engaged, we discovered our first little baby was on the way.  While being a wife & mother will always be my greatest joy and truest accomplishment, I am almost sad to admit I felt something missing from my personal life. I have a wonderful group of friends, family that is genuinely amazing (on both sides) and a supportive loving husband.  So, what was my problem?! Only now do I know the answer. I have always been a creative person. I love reading, writing, crafting and what was missing was that “just for me” time. Everything I did was because I was someone’s wife, daughter, sister, mother, employee, friend. But what was I doing for me?  I confided in my husband many times. It wasn’t that I was unhappy. I certainly was not. I just felt like there had to be more. I started scrap booking but didn’t enjoy it much. I tried other crafts, sewing, crocheting , etc but it just wasn’t my thing. I made a few projects around the house and was proud that I crafted something that brought happiness and beauty to our home.  Then I asked my husband for a candle making kit because I wanted to try my hand at a genuine hobby I found intriguing. Immediately, upon first pour, I was hooked!  I adore the process of selecting scents, molding, etc. This candle making was quickly my mental break from being everyone else’s somebody. When we decided to turn my passion over to a business venture, my only caveat was that it had to be all mine. I would craft my own candles, not resell other’s work. I would add scents to the shop and form relationships with my ‘customers.’  I suppose technically I opened shop 6 months ago (October 2012) and since then I have met amazing people, refined my craft and found myself in ways I didn’t even know I was missing. I will forever be grateful for this journey of self-discovery and for my loyal customers who bring me such joyous pride; that humble ol’ me could make candles they enjoy as I did mine from that little country candle shop!

3.  What products do you make and sell?  Hartley Candle Company sells container candles (mason jars, keepsake jars, balmoral jars, aluminum tins), tealights, pillars, votives, and a growing number of shaped candles.

4.  What are your business goals?  Here at Hartley House Candle Company, I believe that beautiful, aromatic candle products can be crafted with love and consideration for our health & well being, as well as with an earnest respect for our environment.  Hartley House is committed to producing high-quality candle products with integrity, using healthy materials that are conscious of both physical and mental well being as environmentally sound.  My goal is to continue to grow in my trade and offer the best candle products to the candle loving market!

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  I love Nature’s Garden products. Currently I use a variety of the fragrance oils including Sangria Punch and Basil Sage & Mint which are two of my most well-loved scents!  I also use the Reed Diffuser Base, aluminum tins and rattan reeds for products offered in my shop.

1. What’s your name & Your Company Name:  Ashley Priester & AP Home Decor

2. Why did you decide to go into business? What was your motivation? How long have you been in business? I decided to go into business after a falling out at my previous job 4 years ago. I told myself I would never work for someone like that again and decided to take my future into my own hands. I went to the library, took out books on candle making since I loved burning them and found a clean way to make them and sell them to others who love them as much as me. I have been doing this for over 3 years now.

3. What products do you make and sell? I make all natural soy candles, wax melts & I also personalize ceramic wall plaques as a décor item for your home, office, etc.

4. What are your business goals? My business goals are falling into place nicely. Someday very soon I hope to have a store of my own selling the products I make, along with many others from friends I have made along the way or inspired to take up a crafty hobby.

5. What are some products you use from Natures Garden? I love everything from Natures Garden. I buy my soy wax and scents. I love the choices available for scents. When my customers ask me if I have a scent I tell them there is a very good chance I can get it for them, which makes them happy customers!!
