Garden Creations

Starting in September, we will be teaming up with Garden Creations in Sharon Springs for a special collection. This lovely shop will carry an assortment of tealights and 4-ounce candles by Candles By Nature.

If you're ever in the Sharon Springs area (home of Beekman Boys fame) be sure to stop in Garden Creations. It's a really beautiful shop with a unique blend of home decor items. The store is located in the historic Roseboro, which is a gorgeous building in and of itself. Actually, the entire town of Sharon Springs is really pretty, you should just come and see for yourself! ;)

Healing Balms Now on Etsy

Today is an exciting day, my friends. As of this morning, our Etsy shop now also includes our all-natural Healing Balms!

We make our moisturizing Healing Balms with all-natural sweet almond oil and beeswax, so it's great for keeping your skin soft and smooth but won't make you feel greasy. We have a scented blend using essential oils of lavender, ylang-ylang, and rose as well as an unscented blend. The unscented blend is also great for guys!

With the new addition of our Healing Balms, Candles By Nature is now well on it's way to expanding into a bath and body shop and we are oh so excited! Our ultimate goal is to branch off into a new shop that has tons of bath and skincare products. We're already in the process of perfecting our own recipes for moisturizers, toners, shampoo, conditioner, bath name, we're gonna create it! As always, we'll be sure to keep you posted on our progress, so look for more updates soon.

Monogrammed Candles

My fun project for today was to create some sample monogrammed candles to list on Etsy. We have listings for sets of 25, 50, and 100 personalized candles but we didn't have any nice samples to show off our customization skills! So last night I whipped up a few labels and, being the cheesy girly-girl that I am, I used mine and Nickolas' initials along with our anniversary date.

I think they look pretty darn good for a quick sample, what do you think? Can't you just see them being given out at a wedding or bridal shower?

100, Here We Come!

It's quite a milestone, my friends! Our little Etsy shop is this close to reaching 100 sales! Looking back on our first few listings back in 2010, it's amazing to see how far Candles By Nature has come. In that time, we've scrimped and saved to gradually make more and more improvements in our products, and it's all payed off. I am so in love with this little at-home business my boyfriend and I have created together. And the best part? We're always continuing to grow and learn and improve! As you know, we're already starting to expand into soaps and other bath and body products, which is incredibly exciting!

Thank you to all of our lovely customers who have been so wonderful along the way, sharing your enthusiasm for candles and handmade products in general. As a thank you, we're offering a *free gift* to our 100th customer. Whoever makes the 100th purchase at our shop will receive a free 4-ounce candle of their choice. So stop by, look around, and get shopping! ;)
