Summer Coming to an End?
It's still warm and sunny in much of the country right now, but an unfortunate truth is that the end of the year will be here before we know it. That means the next four months will likely be a bit busy (and I know I don't have to tell you that). These still-slow days of summer are the perfect time to start ramping up and planning for the holiday rush.
One benefit of being a small business is that you can more easily differentiate yourself from the big-box retailers and businesses that will all be offering exclusive coupons and their lowest prices ever. For one thing, you can offer more than a discount. After all, if everyone else will be offering 20% off coupons, why would you want to do the same? The more unique, helpful, and inspiring your products are, the more they'll stand out -- and the more likely it will be that they'll be purchased.
On a different note, THANK YOU to everyone who participated in The Scent Event! It was a huge success and we had a ton of fragrance oils go out the door. We're hoping everyone has fun sampling all of the new scents. If you don't yet have your order, it's on the way - we got the last of the sale orders shipped on Friday.
New items now in stock:

We are still in the process of bringing in more products, with some arriving next week! Please keep a watch on our What's New page - it's being regularly updated to keep you informed on everything being added. Candle making supplies wholesale.
We have added a page on How To Make Candles: candle making directions. Learn how to easily make soy candles in containers!
You can also keep track of all updates on our Facebook page.
We are going to spend the weekend resting and recuperating from The Scent Event sale, then hit the warehouse hard on Monday!
