Jennifer Spencer answers questions and chats JS Candle Studio!
POPUPSOCIAL: How did you get into the candle making business?
JS: Candle making started as a hobby. I use candles for meditation so I figured I could make my own. I’ve experimented with many waxes, wicks, dyes, fragrances and then I decided I could make a business out of this.
POPUPSOCIAL: How long have you been in the business of candle crafting?
JS: I’ve been crafting candles since February 2014 but officially launched the business in October 2016.
POPUPSOCIAL: What are your top three favorite candle scents from your collection?
JS: “Coconut & Tonka”, “Life’s A Beach” and “Blood Orange & Thyme”.
POPUPSOCIAL: If you had to describe your product in one word what would it be?
POPUPSOCIAL: What makes your candles different from any other candle?
JS: Aside from the coconut wax which isn’t as mainstream as soy or paraffin, I would say the fragrance blends are unique.
POPUPSOCIAL: When picking a candle what should you look for to find the perfect scent?
JS: I don’t believe there is a “perfect scent” – it all depends on your personal taste.
POPUPSOCIAL: Which candle is the best for stress relief?
JS: Ginger Orange & Vetiver is extremely soothing, in addition to Lavender.
POPUPSOCIAL: What are some ways you can make your candle long lasting?
JS: Trim the wick before you light your candle. This helps to avoid soot and consumption of the wick vs the wax.
POPUPSOCIAL: What inspires the various scents of the candles in your collection?
JS: A majority of my scents are inspired by my travels or random conversations with friends and colleagues.
“Life’s a Beach” for example was inspired by a colleagues favorite fragrance. Good thing I kept her in mind- it’s my best seller. “Blood Orange & Thyme” was inspired by my trip to the Amalfi Coast.
POPUPSOCIAL: Where are your candles made?
JS: My candles are made at home, in my kitchen, Brooklyn, NY.
