Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
Candle Soap Bar is a luxury soy candle and all-natural soap company. It was born during a very relaxing candlelit bubble bath one night. I was tired of purchasing toxic-burning candles and using bath products that weren’t of good quality, so I set out to produce luxurious clean-burning soy candles and all-natural quality soap products to offer people who appreciate health and relaxation. I’ve always been passionate about having a good smelling home and obsessed with candles. As well, I call myself a bath product junkie—this business was a no brainer for me. I’d say it was meant to be.
What life accomplishments are you most proud of?
I’m most proud of my beautiful family and the home I’ve built. I’m also very proud to have started a company while juggling caring for my two small infants and watching my business come to life.
Where do you go when the going gets tough?
I go straight to my bathtub and turn off all the lights, light my candles, reflect and relax.
What’s your biggest job perk?
I will never have to buy candles, soap or bath products ever again!
What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?
The Purple Place in El Dorado Hills.
Where do you and your family go locally to have fun?
I like to take the kids out on Folsom Lake in the summer for water fun and camping. In the winter, I take them to the Sierra to play in the snow.
What’s your favorite local business other than your own?
Maribou Salon on Sutter—it’s where I get my hair styled and the staff is so friendly.
And finally, customer service is…?
The key to my success. My customers mean everything to me and I strive to make them happy and give them a product that is well worth the cost.
