This past week, I’ve been a hands on entrepreneur. This past Sunday, I went hiking in Altadena, to read about that adventure click here. I picked herbs and flowers for my Wild Beauty‘s infused body oils. Well last Thursday, January 26th, I received my order of bamboo poles. Back in December, I met with Susan and she gave me homework, which was to make bigger bamboo candles.
It was a lot of work but really worth it. I’m learning so much from doing it myself. I urge who has someone else making their product, if you can ask if you can be involved in making the process. Just to get a feel of how it’s made. So when people ask you really detailed questions you have a better knowledge. No one should know your product better than you and if they do, then that’s a problem.
The candle turned out great. They will be ready tomorrow and of course I documented the whole experience. Here’s what the old bamboo candles looked like:
The candles won’t have any packaging but the bamboo is the package. It will be packed carefully so it will arrive in pristine condition. The bamboo is so beautiful that I don’t want to hide with unnecessary packaging. The candles smaller candles are 5 1/2 inches and holds 7 oz of wax price $21.00. The slightly larger candles 6 1/2 inches holders 8.5 ounces of wax $24.00 Candle sets will be $30.00. A lot of work went into carry, cutting and shaving. Those poles were heavy and I carried them myself. I was covered in dust and enjoyed every moment of it.
Candles go on sale tomorrow 02/02/2012.
