2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  I have always loved burning candles, so about ten years ago I started making my own.  As it turned out, candle making was the perfect creative outlet for me.  I honed in on soy because of it’s qualities vs. paraffin; it’s sustainable, made in America, long burning, soot-less and has excellent throw.  My hobby has turned into my passion to make excellent products that I can proudly share with others to enjoy and appreciate.  I started selling my products at vendor/craft shows last fall and am now stocked in four stores.

3.  What products do you make and sell?  Soy candles, tarts, air fresheners, room sprays and scented stuffed animals.

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!
