Starlight Story

The first flicker of inspiration that led to Starlight Soap & Candles began at home over five years ago. Soaps, candles, and family have always been some of my favorite things. 

It’s no wonder that we originally began crafting soaps in my kitchen for beloved relatives and friends.  I certainly learned a lot about the process of soap and candle-making in my home-based “lab”.  My analytical side embraced the research and science it took to produce fine products. Believe it or not, I truly enjoyed the trial and error phase, it's where I learned the most.

I poured all of my creativity into making products that I loved.  As things began to grow our home became the Starlight production and fulfillment center.  Every part of our home became a section of the business.  One room was the shipping room, another is where I stored all my supplies, the living room became the finished products room, the dining room the staging and photo shoot area and the kitchen, as mentioned before, was where I made all of these wonderful products. This was such a fun time!  (We have one really large den that I'm trying to convince my hubby to let me have so I can consolidate all of these rooms into one and have our home back, maybe someday he will see it my way.) :)

Over years we have committed ourselves to learning the science of soap-making and developed a love for candle-making.  I have become a member of the Indie Business Network which is a mentorship for handcrafted businesses.  I have also continued investing in programs that enhance my knowledge and skills of making these handcrafted products.  Following good manufacturing processes, we continue to improve by documenting important information and following clean and sterile procedures.

Our goal is to be uncompromising in the ingredients we choose. We want richly scented, lush products that encompass a little whimsy in their practicality. We have meticulously curated some of the very best fragrance combinations and ingredients for the Starlight Soap & Candles product line. Sourcing safe and effective ingredients is crucial to the mission of Starlight Soap & Candles. We search for clean, non-carcinogenic, toxin-free ingredients. Now, we offer an array of products to enhance your home and well-being.

My wish is that our handcrafted products bring a bit of Starlight into your life!
