Breaking Into the Candle Making Business

Hello again everyone! For all you new crafters out there, are you looking for an easy way to get yourself into the candle business? Or maybe you’re a recent college graduate looking to get into candle making on the side as a way to help pay off those hefty loans? Well here at Nature’s Garden, we are always trying our best to make everything as easy as possible for our customers! We want all of you to be able to let your creativity shine, not just sitting at your computer wondering how in the world to get started.

First, let me explain a little bit about how our website works to make it all the more easier for you. On the top left corner of our homepage, it says Candle Supplies. Go to Candle Supplies and that will show you the categories for all of our candle making supplies. One of the easiest ways for beginners to break into the business is by purchasing our candle making kits. Candle Making Kits is one of the categories included in Candle Supplies. Almost if not all of the products you will need and a complete set of instructions are included in each kit. How awesome is that?! Our goal is to do whatever it takes to help you succeed in your business, and it doesn’t get any easier than complete kits! You also have the option to go through all of the categories in Candle Supplies and purchase all of the items separately from each other.

Now it’s time to get down to business and start making those candles, people! If you scroll down a little bit on our Homepage, you will see a section that is titled Free Support. There we offer FREE candle making classes as well as a free candle making manual that Debbie wrote herself! If you did not purchase a kit and bought your products separately, we offer free candle making recipes as well! There is plenty of variety there, from Christmas candle recipes to animal print candle recipes. We want you to be successful at any and everything! On top of all that awesomeness, we also offer free marketing help! While you are starting your business, you should definitely take the time to check that out!

When you feel you are ready to begin selling your candles, please don’t hesitate to come to us with any questions you may have! I hope that everything on our site has made it easy as pie to help you start your own business! Or if you’re that recent grad I talked about earlier, it is such an easy and fun way to help you make extra cash to start paying off those loans! We feel you are a huge part of our family, which is why at Nature’s Garden we specifically sell ingredients only because we want our customers to be successful in selling their finished product. See how easy it is to break into the candle making business? Easy as 1, 2, 3! If you want to get started right this moment, make sure to check out those candle making kits first!

The Handmade Industries

starter-kits copyOver the years, the home scenting as well as the bath and body industry has grown into a multi-billion dollar industry.  And, even better yet market analysis data report that these industries are still on the move.

When it comes to candles, chandeliers are using more than just paraffin waxes.  There has been an influx in quite a variety of waxes for candles including soy, gel, and other natural based waxes as well.  But, besides the array of candles available, many candle makers are marketing other products with their candles too.  Companies are creating complimentary scented products like incense, cosmetics, soaps, home scenting mediums, pet products, and even cleaning products to be sold with their candles.  The same statement can be made for soap makers.  Rather than just marketing bath and body products like soaps and scrubs, many soap makers are also making candles and tarts, room sprays, reed diffusers, and aroma beads in matching aromas too.  And, this super smart marketing strategy equates to higher sales and happier customers in the end.

The common denominator for success in both handmade industries is superior quality products that smell good.  We live in a world today where consumers are very aware of quality.  Because handmade products are far more superior to mass produced machine made products, consumers will seek out quality.  Even when it comes to the soaps that they use in their homes, shoppers are now realizing that going the handmade route with their purchase is the wisest choice.  Not only do natural soaps have a longer life in the shower, but also handmade soaps are healthier for your skin.

Besides the superior quality of handmade products, the good smell of your products also increases sales.  Consumers are spending more on products that smell good.  People want everything to have a good smell whether it is their homes, automobiles, clothing, or themselves; there is a huge niche for this.  Many perfumists in the industry realize this and are diligently working harder than ever to formulate scents that fulfill the unique wants and needs of the consumers spending habits.

Even when it comes to gift giving, many shoppers are going the homemade route instead.  Homemade gift baskets are becoming more and more popular because homemade gifts mean more to the recipient than store bought gifts.  Handmade products are sentimental.

If you are interested in making your own soaps, candles, cosmetics, or home scenting products for your small business or even just a gift basket, Natures Garden is here to help.  We are truly passionate about helping you turn your creative ideas into something beautiful in this exciting and prosperous industry.  Our informative and experienced staff can be reached by calling our HUG Line (1-866-647-2368) or you can contact us via email at info@naturesgardencandles.com.
