Soy & Beeswax Candle Making Handbook

How to Start a Homebased Profitable Candle Making Business

According to the National Candle Association U.S. retail sales of candles are estimated at approximately $3.2 billion dollars per year and growing.

If you are a candle lover, then you already know that not all candles are created equal right?

The question is why not, well, because most commercially made candles are full of paraffin, a petroleum byproduct that is cheap to use and harmful to you and your family. Not to mention they don’t give you the long-lasting aroma that some better quality candles provide.

I have been making and selling candles for little over two decades now, and I can assure you it is not a hard craft to master. It is one of the simpler home craft that anyone can try and see great success. But more importantly, you will be able to enjoy the goodness of a real soy or beeswax candle that is aromatic and good for you and your whole family.

But what if you can make much better quality candles right at home and at a fraction of the cost? What if I tell you it can be done in just few hour? Lastly what if I tell you, you can sell some of your creation and make a nice income from it right from home?

Could you use a little bit (or maybe a LOT) of extra cash each month? And wouldn’t it be great to be able to earn that extra cash without having to get another job. Wouldn’t it be great if you could earn this extra cash on YOUR terms.

In this book, I will show you how you can do just that.

If I was able to peak your interest, then let me say this, it is very doable, and NO it does not take any extra or special skill set. Once you know the basics, you can then start getting creative and add your own touch, scent, and color and make something so unique that just by looking at it, everyone will know it is your creation.

Okay now, let me give you a quick glimpse of what you will learn in this book so you can decide for yourself.

Natural & Organic Liquid Soap Making Business Startup

Learn How to Make Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash, Sunscreen Lotion, Muscle Balm, Hand Sanitizers, Pet Shampoo & So Much More

I started making Body wash, shampoo and conditioners in 2004 when after a couple of allergy tests my dermatologist advised me not to use any store bought soap or shampoo.  The doctor said my skin discoloration issue was an adverse chemical reaction from the soap. Soon my necessity to make soap became a true passion.

It wasn’t until 2012 when my husband got laid off from his job, I had to seriously think about how to turn my passion into a small home based business, and I did. I grew my business into a decent business making not only Shampoos or liquid soaps, but I ventured into making body scrubs, body wash, SPF lotions, muscle rubs, bug repellent, hand scrub(mostly for my husband, so he can use after working on his 65 Mustang), hand sanitizer and even dog shampoo for our 10 years old Dalmatian.

This book is not about my success in business, but I want to focus on you and your ability to make your passion into a home based business which can potentially grow into a big business. Lately, the new trend is all organic and all natural Beauty products, so I think this is the right time to get into this business.

I put my best efforts to make this book easy to read and follow so you can get started and see a big success in a short period of time.

In this book, my goal is to you make you understand and learn how each ingredient works with each other and how to create your own recipes and flavors, so your creative side comes out and creates something unique that is truly yours and only yours. If you are looking to learn the process, then this is the book for you but if you are just looking just for recipes then this not the book for you.

This book is Divided into Two Parts.

In the First Part, I Show you How to Actually Create Your Product Line

  • 19 Essential Ingredients For All Soap Making
  • What And How To Use Essential Oils
  • 12 Creative Ways To Use Essential Oils

Whittling and Woodcarving (Dover Woodworking)

Whittling and Woodcarving (Dover Woodworking) Lowest new price: $7.99
Lowest used price: $0.25
List price: $14.95
Author: E. J. Tangerman
Brand: E J Tangerman

Throughout the ages one of the most popular ways to direct the creative urge has been whittling or woodcarving. In this volume Mr. Tangerman, one of America's foremost authorities and craftsmen, whose articles in craft magazines have taught and inspired millions, presents a full and thorough introduction to this entertaining art form. With this book, which is one of the few works that bridge the gap between whittling and serious carving, a beginner who is moderately handy can whittle or carve scores of useful objects, toys for children, gifts, or simply pass hours at applying his ingenuity to wood.
Beginning with a history of whittling and woodcarving, the book progresses gradually and easily. The first chapters supply background information on different woods, their proper selection and possible uses, selection and care of knives, and ways of using tools, including grips, types of strokes and cuts, and simple exercises. The following chapters cover rustic work, flat toys and windmills, puzzles, chains, nested spheres, fans, joints, modeling ships in bottles, and caricatures. The second half of the book covers carving proper and describes simple lines, woodcuts, low-relief pierced designs, sculpture in the round, inlay and marquetry, lettering, indoor and outdoor decorations, and styles. The final chapter describes finishing, repairs, and the care of tools. The wide range of illustrations includes both hundreds of beautiful wood objects from the great art of the world and hundreds of modern projects, many of which are contest winners.
"Mr. Tangerman guides actual working, but his tone of direct address, such as a teacher would use in speaking to a pupil or a class of intelligent pupils, makes it easy as well as instructive reading." — New York Herald Tribune Books. "A fascinating book, giving many suggestions of what to make and how to make it, ranging from simple things to intricate ones." — Horn Book Magazine.
