Excellent Throw with Fragrance Oils

Monday, May 6th, 2013

Fragrance Oils1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:      Mary McKnabb   /   Motherly Lights Candles

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business? I am a full time caregiver to my husband who had 4 brain injuries in a 6 month period of time. This happened in Sept, 2006. I was always looking for a candle that had a strong calming scent in order to help keep my husband calm without medication. But was disappointed in how it burned and the scent throw.  ( keep in mind these were grocery store candles)  In 2010 I started searching the internet on how to make candles. I came across Natures Gardens website and found everything I needed to make my own candles, even steps on how to make candles. Finally in 2012, having free time and extra money, I decided to start a candle business. It was something I could make a little extra income doing at home so I could still be with my husband.  My business started in Sept 2012.

3.  What products do you make and sell?  The products that I make are 13.5 oz and 6 oz container candles.  Tea Lights and tart melts. I have more ideas that I will be doing in the near future.

4.  What are your business goals? My business goal is just to produce a high quality candle that burns good and has an excellent scent throw to please my customers.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  Just about everything that I use comes from Natures Gardens. I use Joy wax, fragrance oils, wicks, coloring.  My favorite products is the fragrant oils.  Never new there were that many scents.  I also love the Joy Wax that I purchase from Natures Gardens.  With these 2 products I can make a high quality candle.

wholesale fragrance oils1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:   My name is Laura Luther, I am the proud owner of Olive My Skin

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business? I have officially been in business since 2002, but I have been making my own products since the 1980’s. Having sensitive skin and not being able to use commercial products put me on the course to find all natural alternatives to skincare. Those products were given to friends and family as gifts and eventually as my test marketers. It wasn’t until a friend suggested I sell my products at a craft show that I realized how much I loved informing people the benefits of all natural products. An educated customer always comes back for more.

3.  What products do you make and sell?  Handmade soaps, lotions, lip balms, sugar scrubs, shower gels, foaming hand soaps, soy and palm wax candles. Private Labeling for shops and personalized products for weddings, corporate events, showers and special occasions are very popular with customers right now too.

4.  What are your business goals?  This is my full time job. I am a single mom to 3 teenage kids, so I am able to be both an attentive parent and a successful business owner. Currently my products can be found in many shops in Connecticut, but I hope to be in shops all over the country.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  The candle fragrances from Nature’s Garden are awesome! Great throw, even when unlit! My customers seem to be drawn towards them. Most of my candle scents are from Nature’s Garden and I think that they will all be very soon.

Homemade Soap and Lotions

Wednesday, April 10th, 2013

fragrance oils1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:  I sell my soaps and body products under the name Bird Bath Essentials.  The big umbrella of my business is The Robin’s Nest and encompasses my fiber and other interests.

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  There’s always been a little entrepreneur in me!  I learn to do something and once I perfect it, I just have to share it with others.  I started The Robin’s Nest in 1984 and added Bird Bath Essentials for the handcrafted soap and body products in the early 2000’s.

3.  What products do you make and sell?  My main body product is soap.  I have developed my base recipe to include nourishing oils and then I enjoy adding herbs from my garden, different milks, seeds, colorants, etc. to individualize my bars.  Enjoying the process, I consider each bar a little work of art.  I also make cream lotion, body/bath oils, sugar polish, bath salts, lip and body butter.  I knit, spin (on a spinning wheel not a bike!), and dabble in watercolors and polymer clay.  Occasionally, you’ll find products that reflect these interests in my shop, as well.  Always in the sharing mode, I also offer classes in knitting and traditional rug hooking and hope to add soapmaking to the list soon.

4.  What are your business goals?  My business goal is to make and offer nourishing body products – ones that are not only nourishing to the skin but to all the senses and the soul.  I work fulltime as a registered nurse and my business dream is to reach a point where I can spend more time on The Robin’s Nest / Bird Bath Essentials than on nursing!

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  I’m in love with Natures Garden’s fragrance oils and really appreciate the descriptive information that’s provided for each one.  Some of my best sellers include products that incorporate the following fragrances – Sea Salt & Lotus Blossom, Cashmere & Silk fragrance oil, Blackberry Jam, and Aloe Vera & Cucumber.

From Cake Decorating to Soap Making

Sunday, March 31st, 2013

estee lauder photo

1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:  Michelle L. Daniel  of Tea Time Creations, LLC.

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  I have always been interested in aromatherapy.  My nightly ritual involved relaxing in a hot bath with my own special blend of essential oils.  Since I have always been drawn to scented bath products, I wondered if I could make a soap with my special recipe of essential oils that I loved so much.  I began researching soapmaking and decided to give it a try.  I was addicted.

After experimenting with several different recipes, I wondered if I could incorporate my cake decorating skills into soapmaking.  A friend who had seen my work suggested I take my soaps to a holiday craft event.  One thing lead to another, and Tea Time Creations, LLC was formed the beginning of 2012.  I haven’t given up my career as a court reporter, but I hope to someday make Tea Time Creations, LLC a successful business.

3.  What products do you make and sell?  I make custom designed soap into cakes and cupcakes.  I also make three-tier cake stands to display my soap out of vintage china.

4.  What are your business goals?  I truly hope to someday make Tea Time Creations, LLC a successful business.  Ultimately, I hope to do custom designs for weddings, showers, parties, etc.  I really enjoy coming up with new designs and challenging myself to create unique pieces.  I have always been drawn to the unique, and want to create a product which will memorialize a life event — that bride on her special day, a mother to be, or a child’s first birthday.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden?  Being a new, start-up business, I have had the need and opportunity to order several products from several different companies.  I find Natures Gardens fragrance oils to be the best.  When a company is formed with the purpose of satisfying the sense of smell, the scents chosen are the most important ingredient, and Natures Garden wins hands down.

Candles scented with Essential Oils

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013

mystic

1. What’s your name & Your Company Name:   My name is Rev. Amanda Darlage.  My company name is Mystic Paths.

2. Why did you decide to go into business? What was your motivation? How long have you been in business?  I went into business for several reasons.  One, I wanted something that was mine, that I could grow and would give me pride.  Two, there are no shops where I live that offered these products where I live, and the nearest ones were an hour away but mostly sold mass produced (and often tacky) goods.  I was looking for authentic, hand-made items, not a bunch of resin-cast items with a weird predilection for putting skulls everywhere, or other things that conform to stereotypes.  Three, I wanted a way to meet other like-minded individuals, as many where I live are still largely underground because of the conservative nature of the town.  Four, I wanted to put my education to work.  I hold an associate’s degree in business and another in accounting.  I did not have the capital to open a store but was offered the online store at a decent price. I also run booths at local events and have been in business for four years.

3. What products do you make and sell?  A majority of the items I craft are the palm wax candles.  I use essential oils for the scents instead of fragrances.  I also put together different kinds of herbal kits and perform services, such as weddings & handfastings.  I sell a variety of products, including gemstones, jewelry, home decor, and much more.  I try to stay away from mass produced items; however, will order just about anything a customer wants.  My favorites are the handmade products.

4. What are your business goals?   One of my goals is to have as much of what I sell handcrafted and as little as possible manufactured by corporations.  Currently, one of my biggest goals is to find an artist who can forge unique athames at an affordable price, something simple and true. Another of my goals is to eventually open a brick-and-mortar store where people can come in and meet.  It wouldn’t just be a store, but a place of meeting, a place of learning and practice, a place where workshops can be held, or simply discussions over a cup of tea or coffee.

5. What are some products you use from Natures Garden?  The products I use are mostly the essential oils and candle molds. I will use the fragrance oils upon request i.e. food scents.

mishelle

1.What’s your name & Your Company Name: My name is Mischelle Martell, and my company is The Soap Opera

2.Why did you decide to go into business? I was already in business, making handcrafted jewelry. I own a brick & mortar store and, as I love all things handmade, I decided to give
soap making a try, not only for myself, but to add something new and special to my selection of gifts.

3.What was your motivation? I bought my first bar of handmade soap several years ago after a friend of mine explained how handmade soap could help the dry patches and excess oil my face – as well as my rough, dry skin in
general. I bought a bar and instantly noticed the difference. My face was not longer oily or dry, the rough patches on my arms and legs were soft and silky…I was hooked! Immediately I looked into
making my own soaps…and my love of soaping just blossomed from there.

4.How long have you been in business? I have been actively soaping now for 3 years and have been in the business of handcrafted items (jewelry and gifts) for 14 years.

5.What products do you make and sell? For bath & body: cold processed soaps, lotions, body butters, bath bombs, shampoos & conditioners, room & linen sprays, bubble bath, carpet powders, lip balms, perfume oils, body mist sprays, clay
facial masks, a “WEN” type cleansing conditioner, tub teas, container candles, and more.

6.What are your business goals?  Running a profitable organization, increasing my staff, giving my customers  the assurance that my company is easy to do business with and
improving customer experience, launching new products, becoming more efficient in business operations, growth (I plan on moving to a larger store within the next 2 years).

7.What are some products you use from Natures Garden? Fragrance oils (Oh, My!), candle wax, base oils, herbs, cosmetic clays, packaging…

delynn

1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:  Delynn Burrell, Southern Hideaway Candle Creations

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  I originally started making candles as a hobby to help with my candle obsession. From there it grew to doing them for Family and Friends for presents for Christmas, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Baby Shower Gifts.  Finally a friend told me I just needed to open a store online and try selling them. So I did, this was back in 2007. I’ve grown over the last couple years, increased my designs and expanded to include Bath and Body type products as well as homemade candy.

3.  What products do you make and sell?  A little bit of everything, from Tarts, to Memorial Pillars to Specialty designs such as Praying Angel Pillars. I do realistic food and beverage types, Wax dipped Animals, Aroma beads, Incense, and of course my Favorite from Nature’s Gardens the Aroma Buds.    I have a whole area dedicated to Pregnancy and Infant Loss which is very close to my heart.

4.  What are your business goals?   I want to continue to grow, to expand into more designs and mediums of wax as currently I only work with Soy and Gel. I would love to see myself grow enough to be able to fulltime support the purchase of my own domain and website, as currently we are only on Facebook. I truly just hope to grow as an artist, to continue to touch the hearts of my customers with the designs I put out.

5. What are some products you use from Natures Garden?  We currently use many of Nature’s Garden’s scents, flavorings for lip balm, we’ve recently started the salt scrubs using products from Nature’s Garden, and we do the Aroma Buds. Our favorites as far as scents go is Cola, Apple Butter Caramel fragrance oil, and one we tested but haven’t seen added to the site yet called Apple Pecan Sage. We adore all the flavorings we’ve tried, our biggest seller is Monkey Farts and the Aroma Buds are probably are most favorite because we love Roses but hate that real ones die so quickly so it enables us to keep them year round.
