fragrance oils1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:  Shannon Petro – Walker’s Hollow

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!

For the Love of Candles and Scents

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

Fragrance OilsWhat’s your name & Your Company Name:  My name is Melissa Love and my company name is Scandalicious Candle Melts.

I love candles and I just got tired of the same old candle in the jar that you would find at local stores. I wanted candles that not only look different, but they also have to smell awesome. It wasn’t until the summer of last year that I started my research into creating my own candles and I did just that. I started making my own and giving some away to friends and co-worker as a gift. I had such a positive feedback that I decided to turn my love of candles making into a business. So finally in December of 2012, I open my Etsy store. In addition to my online store, I have my products in 3 boutiques and I am a member of the Michigan Association for Female Entrepreneurs.

I make fun shaped candles tarts and free-standing Shape Candles.

My goal is to have my own store and to have my products in as many homes and offices as possible.

I know with Nature Garden’s awesome products and their fabulous high quality fragrance oils, I will accomplish my goal.
