Don't Know Where To Start?
Welcome to your one stop source for homemade soy candle making instructions, tips and tricks! My goal here is to help you get started learning how to make your own soy wax candles at home and maybe even start your own home business.
I have been making scented soy candles for over 4 years, most of that time I made them as a home business. I love helping people, and I love scented candles, so I decided to build a website where people could come and learn all about how to make soy wax candles, ask questions, troubleshoot problems and learn about starting a candle business.
You might be wondering "If making soy candles is so great and a good business opportunity, then why did you stop selling them?"
Well, I'll tell you why. It isn't an easy business. That's one thing you'll hear me talk about in some of the articles here about starting your soy candle making business. I have 3 young boys and a husband to take care of, and they come before any business opportunities I might have going on. I tried selling my homemade soy candles for around 4 years, but as the business got busier and candle sales gradually increased, the stress increased, and my time for my family decreased.
But because I didn't want to completely abandon the soy candles, I decided that there is a need for good instructions on how to make soy candles at home, where to find good suppliers, how to start your business, build a web store etc.....
So I wanted to fill that need.
This allows me to still have my hand and creativity in making homemade candles when I want to, and yet still have time for my family and be able to help people like you that may just want to make candles as a hobby, or for gifts or personal use, or that may have the time or help to be able to do this as a business.
I hope you get a ton of useful information from this site, and if you have any questions, PLEASE feel free to ask me.
