  1. Prices of wax are based upon their raw components. Petroleum for paraffin, soybeans for soy. These are commodities and prices fluctuate based upon supply and demand. Finished candle prices are partly based upon cost and partly based upon what consumers are willing to pay as well as popularity of the items, and even by fashion and propaganda.
  2. Newbie advice? FDA vs. CPSC

    TT, would soap from a cold process rebatch base be regulated like the melt and pour? Thanks.
  3. Mostly I am OK with natural scents. I grow citrus and have no problems there. That may have possibilities... Thanks!
  4. I may have to give it a try...thanks!
  5. That's interesting. Fragrance seems to be everywhere now, so I am not surprised more people are becoming sensitive. I also like to crochet or knit while watching TV. I used to make rugs but no money in that, I don't think. I have to wake up my creative juices....☺
  6. Wow, these are all really great ideas. I did wonder if there is any market for unscented products like beeswax or soap as I really liked making candles and tarts. I may look into the bags. I think I could do that. My sewing machine is an old White treadle machine so no fancy embroidery, but I can do all the basics. I don't think I will buy 500,000 soap saver bags....I have good crochet skills but I never saw anyone make any money with crochet. I am in Florida but not in a tourist area. However I will be within a reasonable drive of the Mouse. And beaches too. I do not know if this is a craft but I like old lamps and lighting and maybe I can do something with that. I have sold lamps on eBay with good results. Thanks, everyone!
  7. I need to find a new hobby since I can no longer make scented products. It would be nice if I could make a little money on them down the road. I don't want to steal any secrets or creative ideas from members, but if you have seen anything at craft shows that seem to sell well and would be willing to share that information it would be greatly appreciated. I am not a great seamstress but do have some sewing skills. Thanks!

    @TallTayl, are you sure it is the same company? I have no experience with them but when I search Craft server, all the reviews are good. I know some members buy from them, hence my sharing the information. If they are not a good company, I do apologize.

    I believe they do. I know a number of our members order from them including Candybee. Maybe she'll chime in.
