Easy Soy Candle

This entry was posted in candle colorants, candle dye, candle fragrance oils, candle making, candle making supplies, candle scents, candle wax, candle wicks, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden, Natures Garden Fragrance Oils, soy candles, soy wax and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

first soy candleHello everyone! My name is Cindy and I am the new Marketing Rep for Natures Garden.

Although I am not new to the candle scene; I used to sell paraffin candles for Deborah back in 1997, I am new to the making homemade products world.  After working for Natures Garden a few days, I quickly realized that one of the most important aspects of my position is that I know all of these products in and out.  Since I am a hands on learner, the best way for me to understand these products is to put myself in your shoes and become a candle and soap artisan.  And, today I did just that.

Since I already have some knowledge in the candle market, I decided to start my venture with soy wax.  Now, I want to shout it from the roof tops, “I made my first candle….ever….in my whole life”.  It was super easy too!

Although secretly, I do have to admit I was a little concerned at first.  I actually thought I might burn down the test kitchen, a common fear that I assume many new crafters have.

Realizing it is now or never, I stood up straight and pulled myself together.  You will never learn if you never try, right?  So, I gathered all of my ingredients and supplies, and went to work.  The step by step instruction I used to make my candle came from the How To Make A Pure Soy Wax Candle Recipe.   This recipe as well as hundreds of others are offered in the free recipes and classes section of Natures Gardens website.    I now understand that every recipe created by Natures Garden came from the trial and error process.  A process that is done to put forth the BEST end product.  Natures Gardens creative team makes all the mistakes so you don’t have to (I think I hear a commercial in there).

Anyway, I worked through the easy to follow steps and before I knew it (about 30 minutes later), I was standing before my first candle creation.  A beautiful purple colored, Lavender Sage scented candle.  I could not believe my eyes.  I actually thought to myself….well, that was easy.  Who knew?  I then realized I could have been doing this for years, guaranteeing the candles I burned in my home had the best scent throw and longest burn time.

Now that I know just how easy it is to make candles, the possibilities are endless.  Guess what kind of gifts I’ll be giving this year…lol?  Overall I really enjoyed my experience; that is after I got over the initial fear.  A word of advice for anyone that wants to give candle making a try… I strongly encourage you to do it!  Candle making is easy, fun, and the accomplishment of your creation is inspiring.

Well kids, until my next adventure, have a FABULOUS day!
Cindy

4.  What are your business goals?  My goal is to increase sales by at least 50% in the next twelve months.  Implement a well designed web-site that is fast and easy to navigate.  And to continue making products that leave my customers wondering why they ever bought anything else.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  I love your 464 soy wax along with the pillar of bliss.  I enjoy all your fragrances and really like the NG Signatures.  You keep so many wonderful scents stocked it makes it easy to have stock for all the different requests that come in.  The helpful hints you have on your site are always very useful!

US Army Wife uses NG Fragrance Oils

wholesale fragrance oils1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:  Potting Shed Candle Co.

2.  Why did you decide to go into business? What was your motivation? How long have you been in business?  I started my candle business just last April. It’s been a long time dream of mine to start a line of good quality candles. My husband is in the military and we got orders to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba in 2011 and I thought this was the perfect time to start, considering there isn’t much here for entertainment. It has given me plenty of time to get it all up and running. So far it has taken off great! What’s even better is I get to supply a product to my military community wherever we go.

3. What products do you make and sell?  I make soy blend candles in all different sizes and also specialize in making candles in unique containers. We offer a huge variety of wax melts and room sprays. I use high quality oils to give you the best possible scent to fill your home. I hope to offer a much bigger variety once we make it back to the good ole USA this summer.

4. What are your business goals?  This is just the start for me, I have created my candle line to sell online and at festivals and craft fairs but I am on my way to my own shop located in my hometown of Saint Mary’s West Virginia once my husband has retired from the US ARMY.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?   I use all of my waxes and oils strictly from Nature’s Garden. They were the first ones I tried and I thought I would have to try many different ones to find a great quality but I haven’t even considered anything else. I love them! I would say my absolute favorite item would be the Blueberry Muffin fragrance oil. It continues to be a best seller of mine.

Soy Candles and Room Sprays

This entry was posted in candle making supplies, cold process soap, cosmetic clays, cosmetic supplies, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden, soy candles, soy wax and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

fragrance oilsWhat’s your name & Your Company Name:  My name is Noelle Walters Davis and my company is Suffield Suds, Scents & Sundries

Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  I began making candles about 10 years ago.  Originally I started making candles for my own use because I was fed up with the lack of quality candles on the market.  What was available from the big box stores either turned my walls black with soot, or had no scent throw after they were lit.  I have always been deeply involved in the handcrafted movement and candle making quickly became a passion.  After reading everything that I could get my hands and  lots of trial and error, I’ve developed my own all natural wax blend and use only the finest fragrances available (especially from Natures Garden!)

What products do you make and sell?  In addition to soy candles, wax buttons, and room sprays, I also offer cold processed soap, handspun yarns, and hand woven textiles.  Everything handmade by me!

What are your business goals?  My dream business goal would be to quit my day job and focus on my business full-time.  My husband is a great support and we have a five year plan where (fingers crossed!) that will hopefully come true.  I would love to open my own little candle shop and feature works from other artisans as well.

What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  My number one favorite product from Natures Garden is the fragrance oils of course!  I have been purchasing them for years and have never been disappointed.  Cold processed soap is also a passion of mine and I love the variety of clays, additives, butters, and oils Natures Garden offers.  Soap making allows me to get really creative, and the selection they offer encourages me to be really imaginative!

1. What’s your name & Your Company Name?  Nichole, Nichole’s Candle Creations

2. Why did you decide to go into business? What was your motivation? How long have you
been in business? 
Back in 2007, I got injured on the job as a patient care assistant and ended up out of work for a period of time. Since I had extra time on my hands, I wanted to learn how to make candles. It originally started as just a hobby. I then started trying to come up with unique ideas and decided to allow others to purchase my art. My motivation was to allow others to have something with a personal touch versus something you would just pick up in the store. I have been working out of my home since 2011.

3. What products do you make and sell?  I currently sell tea lights, rose shaped candle melts, heart shape candle melts, cat candles, heart candles, votives, and lip balms. My candles are made out of crème wax and soy wax depending on the product being made. I would also like to expand into more products in the near future.

4. What are your business goals?  Rather than focusing on long term goals and variables I cannot predict, I like to focus my immediate efforts on expanding my own independence day by day.  I intend to expand my catalog as well as expand my business in the online world.  Much of what I am doing is being played by ear.  I find that remaining open ended allows for more opportunities and less difficulty in handling success in unplanned venues.

5. What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  The products I have tried from Natures Garden have been Frosted Gift Bags, Incense Sticks, DPG Solvent Liquid, Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit and Rosemary Mint Type Fragrance Oil.  Natures Garden is new to me, so I haven’t had the opportunity to try many products as of yet but look forward to trying more.  As of right now, I really liked the strawberry cheesecake starter kit. It was easy to make and fun to do.
