I have been thinking again about more ideas for those of you trying to get your home based soy candle business up and running, and making some serious money. So today, I am writing a couple of posts about scented soy candle tea lights.
So here’s another home business idea for those of you who are looking at ways to develop your own scented soy candle home based business and make money from home. As before, we will touch upon soy candle product line ideas. Don’t forget, these articles are all about helping other people succeed so all comments, soy candle gift ideas and thoughts for other readers will be welcomed by everyone. Make gift bags of soy candle tealights for special holidays. Cinnamon, gingerbread, even evergreen essences are wonderful around Christmas. Make red and white candles heart shaped soy candles for red, white or pink bags tied shut with satin ribbons. The customer can make a selection of a dozen, by mixing, and matching. What other ideas can you come up with for 4th of July, or even Thanksgiving? Try to think back upon childhood memories, smells will often trigger and bring back the warmth of special times. Like pumpkin pie, banana bread, or how about hot apple cider. How about my articles on heart shaped soy candles for Valentine’s Day enhanced with male or female pheromones for just a few more ideas.
What was your buyer looking for? Romance? Think of ideas for lovers. Perhaps your card could read, Try placing 6 or 7 tea light candles on a long narrow dish on the table in front of, or on the table between the two of you while you listen to romantic music and sip wines by candlelight. Warning, never place lighted candles on soft surfaces; romance involving lighted fires between lovers is considered dangerous.
Tea candles for aromatherapy lovers. Tuck another gift idea card in. “Place tea light candle on your laptop computer. Your delicious candle fragrances will be released by the warmth of the laptop.” Even consider adding a whimsical additional comment for grins and giggles. “Warning: Lighting candle on top of laptop could be destructive to your electronics in the event of a spill.’
Make sophisticated looking organza bags tied up with ribbons to hold all of your soy candle drawer fresheners. Gift card could suggest uses, like tucking candles into drawers, or on the top guest towels laid out in the bedroom or guests bathroom. How about taking satin padded hangers, and tying the organza tea light bag to the hanger by the ribbons. These could even be sold as sets in gift boxes.
Don’t forget these beautiful bags of candles also are sachets. How about air fresheners in your cars? Placing candles in the cup holder on warm days will infuse your car with a breath of fresh air. Warning, using in extreme temperatures, like Las Vegas, could result in spills should you stand on the gas, or slam the breaks.
Today was the hottest day on record for the summer hear in Vegas, so I had a vision of the soy candle wax splashing around. Even with sun shields, my car gets hotter than the temperature I let the soy candle wax cool down to before adding the fragrance so it does not evaporate. I should test that, I could probably make soy candles without heat now. Know we hit 140 inside cars, not sure about 180 degrees.
I had to laugh, I read where a lady even carried one in her purse. Well doing that here wouldn’t work about 6 months out of the year unless you like the soy candle soap and water cleanup in a bag process.
Don’t forget to keep track of your buyer’s wants and desires. Over time this knowledge base will help you to increase your sales, and isn’t that really what your home based business is about. When are their special occasions?
Thanks again to all of my loyal readers.
