I hope everybody had a good Christmas and I happy new year! I know my family has been really busy with all of the holiday hustle that has been happening. life is finally starting to relax a bit and calm down and now I can focus on my candle making. To be honest I kind of gave up on selling candles for awhile. I didn’t make any sales for quite awhile. I decided I am going to make a fresh start.
Making a fresh start will include lowering the prices on my candles and also adding some new fragrances to my collected. I am also getting a new design for the website that will hopefully get some more traffic and make customers want to stay on my page for awhile. I can’t wait to see what this new year has in store for Red Fox Candle.
Our testing is completed and we are happy to announce that we now have 16oz tins available for sale in all of our scents.

So yesterday was an exciting day for Red Fox Candle Company!! I took the pictures of my candles and am in the process of adding them to the website. Hopefully I will start getting some sales soon. Here is a picture of my Love Spell(type) candle.
I am still in the process of testing my candles. Its coming along nicely and I think I will finally be able to put product on my site in about a week.
I have decided on using cans for the candles instead of canning jars. They look a lot prettier in the new containers.
I have gotten a lot done this week for my webpage. My husband has worked non stop on getting everything in order and looking nice. I have also designed and ordered my labels and have received my business cards.
The only thing left to do is the coloring of the candles. But even with that I have a pretty good idea on what I want them to look like.
So first of all I want to welcome you to my very first blog post. I hope you enjoy my journey on starting my very first company as well.
Let me introduce myself first, I am a stay at home mom of an almost 2-year-old little boy. I also have a wonderful husband of 4 years. I have always wanted to start a little business of my own and I am at a time in my life where this is the perfect timing.
So starting out with making the candles I decided to use palm wax. Using palm wax brings some snags along the way because of the air bubbles that form. But with the help of my husband and a lot of practice we have figured out a way to reduce the problem. I want to use palm wax because I live in Arizona. It is hot here!! I need to be able to ship them to customers with out them melting and palm wax melts at a higher heat than most other waxes.
I am going to start with 5 fragrances to start with and see how well that does and when the time comes ill add more to the list. I will be doing special fragrance for different seasons as well.
Here is a picture of my first practice candle that I made.
I am so excited about my new project, If any of you have any comments or ideas to help me out I would love to hear from you. Thanks for reading!
