After studying Business and Entrepreneurship in college, I came up with the idea for bakery candles in 2013. I created a business plan and used weekly paychecks from my day job to buy supplies until I had enough to test my candle ideas. In 2015, my local news station contacted me for their small business segment which led to my first wholesale order. When the episode aired, small businesses reached out regarding wholesale orders, pushing my business to grow further.
Five years into my candle-making business, I decided to add candle-making workshops. I have taught thousands of candle-lovers how to include relaxation in their schedule by using candles to unwind and inspiring routine “me time” through candle-making workshops. Workshops have ranged from face-to-face as well as virtual. With almost a decade of experience in the candle business, I’m here to share my knowledge with you.
I invite you to join our beginner and intermediate candle-making courses.
