Buy a candle - Make a candle - Build a candle making business

Hi I'm Jo and I run a Candle making business in Fife - I create Private Label candles for luxury Hotels in London and Scotland, run candle making workshops, supply wholesale and about to launch a 'build your candle making business from your kitchen table in 3 months' online training platform to support women looking to start their own business.

I started the business 7 years ago with the desire to be ECO and fill some sad empty vessels with candles. After purchasing ingredients from a high street shop i set to work, only to realise what I had was substandard and promptly disposed of it all. I naively didn't know the extent of what was available to make candles from. I spent a great deal of time researching great suppliers with high quality products and built the business organically from my kitchen table.

It's still only me working in the business but in the last few years It has taken me to Downing Street twice (check out my blog on how to get there) House of Lords twice which I created the candles for one of the events and I am about to go again in June 2019.
