On Etsy since 2009

Fabulous is a process.

I've told this story before, but since not specifically here...well here it is...I used to own a gift store. It was a dream and I made it come true, at least for a time. When I went to the Dallas Market to find some cool stuff to sell in it, I ran into some issues. So many items were poorly made. Out of questionable ingredients. And I finally thought that maybe I should learn how to do it, myself.

It wasn't easy. My first foray into candles ended up with a small (fortunately) fire in my kitchen and stains everywhere. So the candles were banished to the garage for good.

But I kept at it. I bought more wax, different wicks and experimented with jars at the local dollar store (disaster but that's part of the process). I kept at it until I was satisfied, and brought my candles to my store about 8 months after pouring that very first one.

And I sold everything the first weekend. Everyone raved at how good they smelled. And then, a few days/weeks later, they came back to buy more. Saying that nothing smelled as good, burned as well or made them as happy.

I began getting requests for other products. And, by now, I was utterly addicted. So I researched soap and began to make it. I played with ingredients and developed my lip balm and lotion bar recipes (that I still use today). By 2004, I had more than 250 products for sale (if you count various scents) and I kept on. Adding perfume, aroma bead sachets, bottled lotion and more.

My daughter often complains that I'm 'impossible' to buy for. Because, unlike her friends, she can't go to that mall shop and get me something that smells nice. Cause she knows I read those dang labels and will lecture her, at the drop of a soap bubble, on what is wrong with all of them.

My store closed at the end of 2006 due to the economic downturn that wasn't very kind to small, one woman' shops. A few years later, I heard about Etsy and opened my first shop. That shop, Good Scents Bath Company™ was open about a year (and nearly 200 sales) when I decided to rebrand. Back then, since you couldn't change your business name, I had to start fresh, completely losing the momentum I'd developed.

It took time to get stuff moving. But I finally did. I'm happy to say that business is just great. And customers not only come, but they come back. I hope you'll become one, too.

I always say that if my products aren't good enough for my family, then they aren't good enough for yours. I'm really not interested in having my products in every shop in the land. I'd settle (dreaming now) for another shop of my own. But until then, and if then, I'll be happily making the best that I can. Hope you decide to try some. I know you'll be thrilled. Fabulous is a process...and it never ends.

Shop policies

Last updated on April 3, 2021
My products are fun, fragrant and helpful. Banish stale air! Soothe dry skin! Add a touch of fragrance to make you smell even nicer! While my products are definitely 'girl-centric' I do have a lot of male customers who enjoy my top quality and selection.

Most of my products are vegan. The only animal based product that I use is beeswax (lip balm, solid scent and lotion bars only). I use classic paraffin blend wax in all wax melts & candle products for several reasons. First cost. It simply is less expensive than the soy or palm alternatives. Second, fragrance. Not every scent blends with these alternative waxes (and even if they do, those waxes don't hold as much scent). I understand the views on not using this resource (which is, after all, the product of eons of decomposition of plant material...so in theory, just as 'natural' as anything grown today) but I burn candles/melt wax for one reason only...to introduce scent into my world. And I want to do it as reasonably and efficiently as possible.

I do wholesale on a very limited scale as my primary concern is my retail customer base. If you own a retail gift store, spa, hotel etc, wholesale terms may be available. Please convo me for more information. Note: I do not wholesale outside of the United States. Minimum opening order is $350. Reorders $150. Freight is capped at 10% of your order. 15% if your order includes jar candles. Proof of B&M business will be required (tax ID #/physical address at a minimum).

Blistering hot weather isn't kind to people or handmade products. If you live in a hot part of the country, please bring your package 'in' and let it sit in the coolness for a time before opening. Following this simple idea, your products will have time to settle down and cool, but for the very best, always get your packages inside as soon as possible after delivery.

Check out my other shop, CoquetteHome, for fun, useful and helpful items. From coasters to magnets, gift cards, microwave warming pads and more. I like things that are beautiful but also things that are needful. All made by me in Fort Worth, TX, USA. Soon to open: ButtonBettyStudio. I've had such fun making button items for my CoquetteHome shop, that I decided to make every more items. Check it out soon (still in the photography process, which can take a long time...)

Please feel free to ask any questions, about any product, if not completely answered in the listing, and thank you for your interest!

Returns and exchange details
Order and then change your mind? No problem! I will cancel any order without penalty (unless I've already shipped, of course). Any order modification, however, will require that I cancel the current order so that you can submit a new one. This includes updating products or shipment address. I strive to ship fast, so please notify me as quickly as possible! Also, if your order includes anything custom done (such as a label or scent/design) please know that I won't be able to cancel or change any order once I've begun making it. Mega Melts and both Tinned & Jar candles are poured to your order, so I do include those in the 'no cancellation or change' category.

The vast majority of my products are scented. For wax products, I make them as strong as possible but keep in mind that some scents are (by nature) lighter than others. So a strong rose scent will never overwhelm a strong lavender (for example). Adding too much fragrance can turn a plastic wax melt package into jelly, or make a candle soot and burn poorly and neither of those situations is ideal! I've been making wax products since 2001, and I've learned what works and what does not. While I do offer classic fragrances like Cherry Almond, Lavender etc, I also have a lot of in house blends that are found nowhere else. Since there's no 'scratch N sniff' internet, I list the component notes to help you. Most of these scents do have 'unique' names like Mermaid, Groovy or Ghost Pumpkin. Even my version of classic names like Eucalyptus Mint or Spiced Apple may smell differently than those of other makers. Unless a name is trademarked, the name can be used by anyone. So please do not assume that my version matches another company's product...as it may not.

Everyone smells scents slightly differently than anyone else. For this reason, you may smell a note stronger than I do or miss it entirely. I do list the main notes in all blends so that you have an idea of the scent, but words aren't as good as your nose. If you do come across a scent that you don't adore, my apologies. But given all of the variables with fragrance (and including my experience where one person will go 'not a fan' and then the very next will adore it), I won't refund or replace any product based on 'I don't like the scent'. If you're new to my products, please buy the smallest size for your first order. I would appreciate, however, getting a convo about your thoughts, as it does help me determine future product offerings.

If you have any questions about this policy, please let me know.

Finally, in the rare situation that I do authorize a return, be advised that a refund will NEVER include the applicable shipping that was paid to get the item to you. Items that ship as part of my 'free ship' deal do, in fact, have a shipping cost, which I pay for you. Also, you will be responsible for the return shipping cost to me. This is one reason I rarely ask for an item to be returned, as it isn't fair to either of us to bear additional expense.
Payment
You can use your favorite method of payment--credit/debit or PayPal--through Etsy Payments.
Shipping
I ship USPS for the vast majority of shipments. However, I may use UPS for larger orders. And remember that any order over $35 will ship at no charge!

I only ship to the address listed on your order, so please make sure that your address is correct. If you do find that you've made a mistake, please let me know. I'll refund your current order so that you can make the adjustments. I will not manually update the address for both of our protection. If an order is returned to me, I will refund the merchandise value only (not shipping). If you want the order reshipped, you will be requested to purchase a 'shipping only listing' which will be created for you.

I generally ship every 2-3 days to not only avoid unnecessary visits out during the pandemic, but also to keep costs down to you. During the holiday season, Thanksgiving through about the middle of December, I do ship daily if I have something ready to go. I gladly ship to any member of our military and support staff stationed outside of the US. I will gladly ship to Canada. For Canadian customers, a custom listing will be required, but I'm happy to set it up for you!

If your order does not arrive, or arrives broken or damaged, as already mentioned, please let me know. Keep all packaging material as I may ask for photos. If your order is marked 'delivered' by the USPS but you don't have it...my sincere apologies. I know (first hand) how that feels. As a small business, my goal is your happiness, but I can't replace delivered items that are stolen by porch pirates or dropped at the wrong address. However, if you let me know, I will ship out your next order freight free as long as you duplicate the 'gone AWOL' items in that next order. Of course, you can add in more items if you like, as well. Everything in that order, even if below my $35 free ship threshold WILL ship to you free. Obviously, if you haven't checked with your neighbors, your super, your office manager, please do that as well. Oftentimes, someone will get a wrongly delivered package but don't want (or can't) stop by your house to personally deliver it. In those cases, they will often bring them to a common office (such as the superintendent or leasing office manager) or even give to the local postal driver. Finally, please file a police report to notify your local law enforcement of potential problems in your area.

We all know that porch pirate theft is a real thing. It is also, knock wood, a very rare thing for my customers.
Additional policies and FAQs
Seasonal scent info: I have two seasons for fragrances--Spring/Summer & Fall/Holiday. Most of the Spring/Summer are fresh, lighter fragrances (heavy on florals) while the Fall/Holiday are the spicy, woodsy scents you already know & love. When that pour season 'ends', I may still have some product available, but I'm not pouring additional. If the scent you love is not showing in stock, likely it has sold out until the next season. But, if you request, I will pour a special batch for you but the kicker is that you have to buy the entire minimum batch. For MEGA melts, it would be 2 plus the additional single regular size. For regular sized melts, it would be 6 packages. That's of the same scent, of course. Let me know if you have any questions. I like to keep my inventory fresh and for that reason, I won't pour a scent and have it wait around 6-8 months until the season returns.

Product color: wax melts, jar candles & sachets are made in batches. And each batch is colored. A single drop of color (or even a partial drop) can affect the color of the product. It is possible that an order for a single product CAN contain items from different batches. While I strive to make everything uniform...well, I'm human (and color drops are not able to be weighed). This note going in my info area so that you'll know. Also, some colors (blues, greens and most definitely purples CAN look very different on your monitor than in real life). Just some info for you. Let me know if you have additional question.

If you are a blogger, or media outlet, and are interested in products to review, please contact me. Wholesale terms will apply for a very small quantity. Sorry, but I do not provide free samples except in rare cases.

I do maintain liability insurance as does all reputable professional business.

If my policies did not answer your questions, please drop me a line. Thanks again for your interest!
