2. Why did you decide to go into business? What was your motivation? How long have you been in business? When Marlo’s husband died suddenly, she needed a hobby to focus on to help her in her grieving process. That is how Bluebell Soy Candles came about. We have been in business since July of 2012. We’re into all natural, healthy things so the idea of all natural candles was very appealing to us. After doing research on the various types of waxes, we decided we should make our own natural soy candles and tarts. We light a soy candle every day to send a message to Danny that we love him and really miss him and think of him every day.
3. What products do you make and sell? We make tea lights, chunk votives and wax tarts from 100% natural soy wax. We also do custom orders so if you want jar candles, we can do those as well. Our latest idea is making wedding favors with a tea light or tart wrapped in beautiful netting. A custom made thank you note from the bride and groom can also be attached to each candle.
4. What are your business goals? Our goals are to increase our online presence and get more sales from our Etsy store and our Facebook store. We really love making candles so it’s imperative that we increase our sales so we can continue doing what we love.
5. What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden? We absolutely love the fragrance oils from Nature’s Garden. Some of our favorites are Lavender, Black Raspberry Vanilla, Egyptian Musk, Ginger Peach and the Cherry is fabulous! Fragrances from other companies do not compare! We also buy wicks, tea light cups, molds – whatever we need to create our wonderful candles.
