A Step-By-Step Guide to Starting a Successful Home-Based Soap and Candle Making Business

Do you dream of being your own boss?

Are you concerned about the chemicals that are readily used in commercial soap and candles?

Imagine coming home at the end of a long, challenging day at work to a warm bath, surrounded by the glow of relaxingly scented candles. As you dip your feet into the water, you feel its warmth wash over you.

You grab the handcrafted bar of soap off the side of the tub. As you lather up, you're confident that the ingredients are organic and safe for your skin. The smell, the ambiance, and the bubbles melt away the day's worries.

For most of us, there is nothing like taking a hot bath or shower with a lovely bar of soap. The art and craft of soap making has been around for centuries, ensuring that we as humans are forever "bathed" in good smelling scents.

It's easy to locate a nice bar of soap that makes us feel clean and vibrant after use. Yet, how much more fun is it to create a soap that is organic and made to your personal specifications for yourself and your loved ones?

If you enjoy crafting soaps you will also enjoy making candles, the best part is you can use some of the same tools and equipment to make both and they both go hand in hand.
