Shop of the Week - AmbersAromas4U

Today we are spotlighting Amber of AmbersAromas4U. Her shop has a lot of scent-filled items, such as candles, wax melts, and samplers. She has over 100 different scents, which makes it even better! I also love the variety of scents, from cinnamon bun to fresh rain. Check out this interview with Amber:
Q: How long have you been on the Jenuine BNR Team?
A: I believe I joined in the last 3-6 months.

Q: Give a description of your shop.
A: My shop sells highly scented, hand poured candles, wickless candle tarts, hand painted tart warmers and note cards.

Q: How did your shop have it's start?
A: I started making candles when I found myself laid off and only working part time as a way to still be able to enjoy high quality candles without spending a ton of money. I quickly realized how much I enjoyed making candles. I was always wanting to try new scents so the candles started to line all the shelves and surfaces in my office. That is when I decided to sell them online so that others could enjoy high quality candles for an inexpensive price and it would also make room for all the new scents that I wanted to try. So it was a win - win situation. My husband helped me convert one of our spare bedrooms into a studio and I tried a few different venues that I didn't care for before I discovered Etsy. I loved the community and the site, so I decided this is where I would call home and opened my shop on Etsy.

Q: What inspires you and your shop?
A: I find inspiration everywhere. Standing in line at the bakery, working in the garden, cooking in my kitchen. Any time my nose gets a whiff of something lovely, my mind immediately goes to can I recreate this scent in a candle. I love the way a scent can evoke wonderful memories. Like our pumpkin pie scent that always makes me think of Thanksgiving with my family and our pink magnolia scent makes me think of my grandmother and how she loved when the magnolia trees were in bloom.
Here are some featured items from Amber's shop.

This is: A Set of 6 Pink Sugar Scented Candle Tarts Wax Melts 6oz. I can just imagine how good this smells. Anything sweet would be great for a candle scent. I especially love the pink aspect to it. All her tarts have premium waxes and high quality fragrances. Though this is a great picture, the actual tart is shaped differently, which you can check out in the listing.

This is: A Set of 6 Rosemary Scented Candle Tarts Wax Melts 6 oz. Along with the sweet scents, she also has some nature scents. I love the different kinds of scents Amber has. There are so many scents to choose from, and all have their own unique scent.

This item is : Hand Poured Fruit Scented Candle 4 oz. Amber has some items, like this one, where it is a category of scents. There are also "Floral Scents", "Food Scents", and more. I like this because it makes it easier to choose what type of scent or scents you want. This is a great aspect to her shop.

For this last photo, I also wanted to show you the actual shape of her tarts. Not only are there many scents, but also a lot of different colors for the tarts. Not only do you have the fresh scents, but you can add a lot of color to your home as well.
I hope you enjoyed getting to know Amber and her shop AmbersAromas4U. Don't forget to check out her shop!
Until next time..

Q: How did your shop have it's start?

 Q: What inspires you and your shop?
A: My main source of inspiration is my daughter... she is my BizyBelle. She is brillant, funny, beautiful, and spunky... everything that I could ever want! She is the reason behind why I create and what I create. I design as a Mom first... We as parents want cute products that are unique, comfortable, and are truly functional. I am inspired by my clients and their children, I get SO excited with each order that I make. I am just thankful for my amazing customers who allow me to create for their sweet little ones!
