About

How I got started in this.

First off let me say that my inspriation comes from nature. I love the outdoors and want to work as much in harmony with it as possible. If we all do that what a great place this would be to live for everyone.

I work as an intensive care nurse and realized afte talking with many of our senior patients that come in with respiratory issues in the colder months that they burn more candles during these months. I started checking into parafin candles benefits and nonbenefits. Turns out there are more nonbenefits. I checked into soy candes for even just myself. That was 6 years ago and I couldn't believe the cost. I took 6 scents into work in the month of October thinking some of my coworkers would like to buy some. I sold over 200 candles in 6 weeks. I looked around fro a suppier of wax and oils. Found one about 3 hours away. At first I shiped to my home but at $15.00 a case this really added up. I started making trips to get the wax - cost savings was huge - plus a great chinese restaurant on the way. I started with a few craft shows, then farmers markets and now have them in seveal stores. So this is how my business was born.

I started looking at waht went into lotions one day and realized I wanted a more natural lotion. I found a base recipe on the net and curtailed to what I wanted in a lotion. Not just softening but healthy for me. This has been a hit at work. I love the lotions bars - many of the same great oils in my lotions but no preservatives are needed as no water is used. This Fort Wayne made lotion is really gaining popularity.

Next came the soap making. A old friend of mine makes great soap but on the basic side. I wanted one with some of the wonderful oils I use in my lotions so this craft was added to my rapidly growing business. Many say it is the best Fort Wayne soap made and swear they will not use anyone elses.

Then I started looking at scrubs. Hence the clay mask and almond meal scrub (apricot meal is available for those of you with nut allergies but is a little more coarse.) I am all about saving time and this mask scrub combo cuts one step out of my face care routine.

I want to welcome you to my little shop. I love helping others. That is why I became a nurse. I have learned how much damage we inflict on our bodies and souls with the everyday contaminates and stress. This is how I came to start Covington Creek Candle Company. I started making 100% soy candles first for myself and then for my co-workers. Pretty soon the patients would hear talk of my candles and how clean they are to burn with the 100% cotton wicks and essential oils that I can do. The patients started buying them from me. This lead to craft shows and then a farmers market where my product caught the eye of the local food co-op. I strive to use the best product I can find. I buy as much USDA organic as I can find. I check out the companies to make sure they are buying from growers that are responsible in cultivating and sustaining the earth and the wildlife. I take living green very seriously and practice it in my own life. You can rest assured that I will get you the best products I can to contribute to your well-being. By each of us practicing this we can live a life a little healthier and with a little less stress. I have remained a home based business, which means everything is done with loving care. It is my hope to gain enough business that I can put to work some of my friends who have lost their jobs. Quality and care would and will remain our priority.

To get the best burn time on any candle burn no longer than 3-4 hours.

Light the wick with a spagetti stick (yes it's ok to light the stick with a lighter or match). This avoids that black ring from the petro in the lighter or sout from the wooden match. Plus you can reach deep into those tall candle jars.

Do not leave burning candles unattended. Do not leave burning candles or the glass containers within a childs or pets reach.

Do not use the lid to estinguish the flame.

As with all things in life some people may find a allergic reaction to an ingreadient in the candles, lotions, soaps and lip balm. I do take care in chosing the ingredients that I use and post them in product information. The only exception is the votives that have botanicals added at the manufacturers to give a firmness of the product. If you have any allergies to botanicals please use this product with care. So far no one has had a reaction but if you do you do have an allergic reaction to any products (mine or someone elses) stop using the product and seek medical attention. I, nor this business, are responsible for any costs accrued by you.
