Candle Lady Extraordinaire!

It all started in 2004...

Welcome to Bliss Soybean Candles & Gifts ~ an established high-end soy candle vendor based out of the very beautiful Grand Haven, Michigan! My name is Suzanne and I own this wonderful business.

I am proud to say that I have developed all of my own marketing, labels, branding, products, and ideas! My goal in candle making is to provide a high quality product - the best available - while providing an attractive container and packaging. It is true that my products may not be the least expensive but the prices reflect the materials and time I have put into them. I see some pricing that wouldn't even cover the cost of my materials and wonder how people do it!

I started my business by accident... yes, really. I was reading a magazine article about melting old candles together back in 2004 and somehow that led me to the internet to look for soy candle making supplies. I knew back then that soy was much healthier and since I have terrible allergies and asthma, that is a big plus!

As with anything in my life, I just couldn't do something minimal -- I made way too many candles and had to give some away to friends! They loved them which led me to make even more and then I realized I better do a craft show to get rid of them all. That was Garfield Park in 2004 and I did wonderful. And that is where it all began. Word of mouth spread like wildfire and I found myself doing about 20-25 shows a year, building a website, making marketing materials, selling in stores and on EBay, and doing fundraisers. All of that while working a very stressful, more than full-time job as a Human Resource Manager. I put my business on hold for a year and now you just might see me coming back!!!

So stop in and check out my shop! Check my feedback. Talk to my current customers. I have many people who never buy another brand again after trying my candles. I hope you will feel the same way!

Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome to the best soy candle vendor around! I'm so glad you're here! Stop in and shop for a while. If you don't see what you are looking for, please ask. Likely, the item has been discontinued during my business restructure.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Defective Items: We will happily exchange defective items or provide a refund if I am unable to create a new item for you. Defective means that you followed all instructions provided on or with the item and the item still isn't performing to standards. Your experience with my candles should be exceptional!

Damaged Items: Your items will typically not be eligible for replacements due to carrier mishandling unless they are shipped via UPS or have a value under $50. If you want to be sure your package has insurance, you must ask at the time of your order. I will send you a PayPal request for the additional cost.

If you purchased insurance and have carrier mishandling, you will be asked to provide a photo of the damaged item. The item will be replaced with a duplicate item or refunded if I am unable to replace the item.
Payment is required via PayPal immediately following purchase. Orders left unpaid will be canceled.
SHIP TIME: Tarts and "Already Made" jars: 2-3 business days plus transit / "Made to Order" Jars: 5 to 10 days plus transit

SHIPPING & PACKAGING RUNDOWN: We ship UPS Ground and USPS (Priority and Parcel Post) and package extremely well. If you want insurance for breakage, please ask. I will send you a PayPal request for the additional cost. Otherwise, your purchase may not be insured for damage unless it is shipped via UPS or has a value under $50 (USPS now provides insurance for items with a value of $50 or less - yea!). I no longer do replacements unless you have insurance.
Additional policies and FAQs
