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.
