Well I am in the process of starting my own candle and bath products business. My new business logo is over in the picture gallery section. I will be offering about 25 scents to start. To start I am doing, 16oz jars, tarts, cinnamon bun candles, muffin candles, flower pot votives and sugar scrubs. When I get time (and $$) I am going to start doing soaps. If you are interested in the scents I will be carrying please let me know. I will post pics as soon as I can!!!

Jodi ~ I hope you don't mind me asking but how did you get into the bath products? I am asking because I quite fancy trying that myself! I know that's a bit naughty but we are not in competition unless of course you have a shop in London? ;)

Good luck with your new biz anyway and I LOVE your new logo it's great! Did you design it yourself?

It's really hard work all this making stuff to sell isn't it?

Looking forward to seeing your other pics! :)

Bev~

I started making candles because I was tired of buying expensive candles that didn't smell strong enough. I love treating myself to bath and body too but they are so expensive. My goal is to provide a quality product for a reasonable price. I don't know exactly how I got into it but something just struck me one day and I thought, "you know, I could do this!" HTH

seems like a good combo to me too!! I find nothing much more relaxing than a hot bath with some great smelling soap with candles lit around the bathroom. If i am real stressed out i turn off the light and just have the bathroom lit with a bunch of candles on mirrors. And as of yet i have never had a candle that seems to be scented enough, they seem quite weak. Great going Jodi!! I can't wait to see pics of your products. You are going to do great!

I want to be able to buy a candle that I can just open and sniff, whether I plan to burn it or not!
Plus I would rather support a small personal business than a big factory one!

I am just now seeing this post. What a great idea! I can't wait to see your stuff, too.

Bath products are a great biz to get into! Candles, too! I see lots of nice candles on eBay.

Best wishes with your biz.

Kristin :)

Ok here are some pictures...they are not the best as I don't own a digital camera but you get the idea. No pics of bath and body just yet. I am still deciding whether I want to do my own website or have it done.
