candle meltsMy name is Vanessa Paris and I’m the owner of “My Candle Box”.

Hi, my name is Vanessa and I’m responsible for “My Candle Box”. I’ve been open since May 2012 and I enjoy making candles, clamshells, and tarts. The waxes I use are soy and para-soy wax. Making wax goodies brings a smile to my face. Besides making wax goodies for family and friends, I also make them for myself as well. My little hobby has lead me to make a shop on Craft Cafe. I hope you get to experience my soy and para-soy goodies and enjoy them as much as I do.

I have displayed a picture of my Soy Drizzle Melts which includes the following fragrance oils from Natures Garden:  Apple Explosion: McIntosh and Green Apple Explosion (Pink), Sweet Orange Chili Pepper (Orange), and Blueberry Cobbler (Blue).

Soy Candles Never Smelled So Good

soy candle makingHi! I’m Claire, of Simple Sun Candles.

One of my favorite things is the relaxing ambiance a few lit candles in the evening create. Also, the warm and welcoming scent of a candle burning really means ‘home’ and also ‘comfort’ to me. Simple Sun Candles was started with the intent of offering eco-friendly, natural soy candles in a range of fragrances, with a simple and classic design. As someone who delights in the warm, welcoming glow and fragrance of a candle, I was looking for something that would easily blend in to any décor but also featured pleasing scents. However, I could not find exactly what I wanted in stores. After reading quite a bit about candle-making, I decided to begin making my own. I quickly fell in love with the relaxing melting, pouring and cooling process (and not to mention, how amazing my home smells). The name, Simple Sun Candles stems from my desire to keep things simple in life, cutting back on clutter, stress, and being more cognizant of the environment, which is reflected in my use of 100% soy wax, no dyes, and phthalate-free fragrance oils of the highest quality (from Nature’s Garden, of course).

All of my candles are hand-poured with care, at the optimal temperature for the ideal scent throw (after lots of research, and trial-and error!). I selected cotton wicks for my candles for a clean burn, and offer single-, two- and three-wick candles. I enjoy experimenting with new fragrances and products, such as adding soy wax melts to my shop. I am interested in trying out palm wax and pillar molds soon, and possibly dyes and layered candles for holidays.

This hobby/small-business venture has really been a rewarding experience. Having only opened my on-line shop in October 2012, I have already been able to contribute to community fundraisers and love hearing feedback from happy customers. I look forward to many years of creating candles and experimenting with different designs, fragrances, and methods.

In the picture on this blog, I used Natures Garden’s Caribbean Fragrance Oil, Golden Foods 464 Soy Wax, and HTP-73 Wicks (all from Natures Garden).

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!!
