These candles smell wonderful and were the perfect California-themed gift for friends out of state. Jennifer worked with me on my creative shipping request (to a hotel) and was great about communicating the details.
Hobby to small business- Jenny Bean Candles
What makes your Jenny Bean Candles unique?
Our candle fragrances and packaging is what our customers say makes us unique. I really appreciate the feedback I get from my customers. Everyone’s scent preference and smell pallet is different but whatever the customer chooses to enjoy the one thing that is said consistently is our candles are wonderfully scented for a long time prior to burning. They love how they can buy a candle and bring it back to their office or home and smell how wonderful it is before burning it. Our candles are packaged brightly in gift-ready packaging that makes it easy to give as a gift. I believe that’s what makes us unique. I really listen to scent suggestions from customers and what I’ve learned is that preferences are vast so I try to keep in stock many well-loved favorites.
What inspired you to start Jenny Bean Candles?
I love to try new things. I like to stay busy and was board one day. I went to my local craft store looking for a project and saw a starter kit for candles. I immediately took to it and wanted to make more. I gave then as gifts to friends who encouraged me to sell them, others just said “thank you.” I told them of what others thought about going into sales and they encouraged me to perfect my craft. When I think back to my early days of candle making and I am thankful I didn’t start selling right away. My candles were not that good. Well, some were just horrible!!!! Years later after much practice during the gift holidays. I would revisit my candle making as a year round business and apply what I learned over the years. I now know what it takes to make great candles because of my many mistakes
What has been the most impactful moment since starting your company?
One day I had the pleasure of briefly meeting with the owner of a very large packaging company. My challenge, I thought was limited resources, but he showed me that sometimes through limitations creativity is birthed. I left feeling encouraged to continue on with my candle business with this new information.
What is the inspiration behind Jenny Bean’s Style and product line?
for my candle line is the smells around me. Leaving my environment to experience something new, positive, relaxing or fun is an opportunity to take in a scent. I pay attention when I travel to what I am experiencing. A great dessert, The Ocean, fruit at a farmers market, and more. All of those smells can remind us, and allow us to relive an experience by smelling our candles.
What’s in the future for Jenny Bean?
Jenny Bean is looking forward to offering new bath and body items in addition to our bath teas and solid lotions. We are also looking forward to expanding our already successful candle line into brick and mortar stores.
