Jo Barton Jo Macfarlane Ltd


Essentially I am a candle maker and I create Private Label candles for luxury Hotels across London and Scotland, I run candle making workshops. The part of the business I love the most is empowering women to learn new skills from their kitchen table. By joining one of my three online courses they can learn skills from their own home. 'Ignite Your Creativity' - build a candle making business from their own kitchen table., Advanced Candle Making or the beginners Candle making Made Easy.
My new book Ask & Act for Female Entrepreneurs is out now and available on Amazon.

I started the business 8 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.

The business has taken me to Downing Street twice, number 10 & 11 (check out my blog on how to get there) House of Lords three times which I created the candles for one of the events for F Entrepreneur.
