"Soaps n' Stuff"

The place to brew up some lotions, potions, soaps 
& other scented wonders to delight your nose!

by The Candle Cauldron

More and more often over the last few years, candlemakers have started to delve into
other areas of home & personal fragrance products.  Some of these include:

* Melt-n-Pour Soap *  * Cold Processed Soap *  * Incense Sticks & Cones *  * Potpourri *
 * Hand & Body Lotion *  * Bath & Shower Gel *  * Bath Salts *  * Shampoo & Conditioner *
 * Room Air Freshner Gel *  * Room Freshner Spray *  * Body Spritzer *

These types of items compliment candlemaking wonderfully!  The 90's became the decade of Aroma, and now more than ever people want things that smell nice in their homes, and on their bodies.  These types of items make great gift sets and baskets, and can help increase your candle sales tremendously!
