    A Little help getting to know you.

    How old are you? 61. Not sure how I got this old, but it came quick! Where do you live? Just outside of Minneapolis, Mn. How long have you been making candles/soap/whatever? Bath and body-4-5 years, Candles 6m How did you get started making candles/soap/whatever? I saw a booth at my local farmer’s market with lovely soaps and I thought “I can do that”. And so the journey began... Are you married? Yes. Any kids? 3 If candle/Soap making isn't your primary job, what do you do? Flooring Store owner(carpet, vinyl, ceramic, etc.). Also Revenue Cycle Management(RCM) at one of the busiest hospitals in Minneapolis. Anything else we should know? I’ve tried to find local classes on candle making at local comm.ed. and colleges, but Mn. must be a no mans land....so I was thrilled to find this site!!! Thanks for letting me join💖

    Don't know whether to laugh or cringe

    “Hoping the craft venues she is at require proof of Insurance! “ It all seems like easy peasy money...until your hit with a law suit....Insurance is needed in this day and age..be it candles, or bath and body products.

    Puzzled by votives

    From all of the responses I’ll assume there isn’t any reason or benefit from making candle with this process. I know we all have different ways of creating, but after seeing another company making candle this way, I needed to seek out more expert advice. Interesting that the other YouTube video was from a company that’s been in business since 1897. Maybe this is a new process for them? IDK🤔. Thanks for all your input💖

    So they make a votive candle with a wick...then after it’s cooled it’s placed into a container...maybe 3”..then more wax is poured over it to fill up the 3” container. It’s putting a candle inside of a candle. Here is one of the videos I’m referring to: I love the items that Ariane makes, but I’m confused by this method.

    Puzzled by votives

    Newbie here, and I’m wondering if it’s common to use votives inside container candles? I’ve seen several companies use this technique on YouTube, but I’m unable to find any other info on the internet. I would think this process is more work with production of the votives and trying to figure out correct wicking🤔. What do you, the more experienced candle makers think?
