My experience is in scent part of candle making. I worked at an aromatics company for 7 years as a chemist. Many of our scents are my own mixtures and creation. All colors are derived from the 3 primary dyes. Fragrances change the burning characteristics of wax and we adjust each scent's wick size.
Originally, we were looking for a part-time business to help pay for our wedding. I had been playing in the flavor lab at work to blend unique smells. Jen loves candles so we started small and the rest is history. Within 5 months I quit my job for our full-time business. Our repeat customers are the best.
Twice a year I go to my old job and play mad scientist with our scent supplier. Most fragrances are not magical. I love to tell customers how many essential oils are extracted and their many uses. Orange oil is flammable and will dissolve paint. However, dilute solutions are used in green cleaners.
