About Us

Launched in 2003, Things That Make Scents has quickly become a sought-after resource for handmade soy candles, wholesale soy candles, candle gift baskets and unique gifts.

Things That Make Scents debuted its 100% soy candles online in 2003 after founder and owner Janine Predmore transformed her candle-making hobby into a career.

A longtime candle aficionado, Janine became frustrated with the soot stains paraffin candles left on her ceiling. After doing much research, she discovered that soybean candles were a cleaner, healthier alternative with an added bonus: soy wax candles are more cost-effective than their petroleum-based paraffin counterparts.

Janine has expanded Things That Make Scents to include both retail and wholesale soy candles, as well as other locally handmade items and unique gifts. She and her staff create every item by hand with painstaking attention to quality and detail.

What's more, you won't find friendlier, more accommodating service anywhere. Things That Make Scents gladly accepts custom and special orders and provides fast delivery and affordable products no matter how big or small your request.
