HomemadeByHoyt's Shop Announcement

I am one of the little people on Etsy. My brand name means what it says - everything in this shop is 100% handmade by me. I invent the product, create it, package it, and ship it without the assistance of friends, employees, manufacturers, or a storage and shipping service.

I began making candles as a hobby in 2003 and soon after had people requesting to purchase them as gifts. Over time I began selling them at various locally owned stores in Santa Barbara and later expanded my product line and launched this website. I currently work part-time outside the home and spend the majority of my time working on becoming a published writer. (My poetry: - My novel in progress:

My pillar candles are made with paraffin wax, high quality fragrance oils, and hand mixed dye for unique color. They burn evenly and slowly. The 100% cotton wicks have no additives (no lead wire core) and help ensure a safe, non-toxic burn.

My recycled jar candles are made from containers donated by friends, purchased at thrift stores, or collected through personal use. Each jar is thoroughly cleaned by me then filled with 100% soy wax, dyed and scented with high quality fragrance oil.

Each bar of Homemade by Hoyt Vegan Hemp Soap is made from a base of coconut, palm, and hemp seed oils and blended with oatmeal. The use of hemp seed oil provides your body with a daily dose of Omega-3 essential fatty acids and the oatmeal provides a natural exfoliant and moisture barrier for the skin.
