History

A Job That Makes Scents


In 2001 when it was time for my husband to purchase gifts for co-workers, I told him I thought it would be fun to make candles and soaps. I wanted to make up baskets for the wives of his officers and the secretaries he worked with.

That.............is how it ALL began. My, how everything has changed. Back when I started, soy wasn't even offered. All my candles were paraffin. Today I make 100% soy jar candles and 100% soy tarts. My embeds and votives are a soy blend.

My efforts grew until, the spring of 2006, I purchased a retail building in our hometown and thus became Augusta Hitching Post llc. In 2010 I sold my retail building, but my business has thrived.

My venues are online, shows, and wholesale. It has been a process to learn the ins-and-outs of online selling, and it seems there are always corners to turn and more to learn. The summer of 2014 I started selling at the farmers market in Chippewa Falls as a weekly vendor.

Every step along the way has been enjoyable and a learning experience. I've prided myself in giving the best customer service and product I can. I hope you enjoy my products as much as my family, friends, and I do.


Be blessed and thank you for reading a small bit about Soy-N-Suds.
