Big Announcement

Posted by Soylady on 10/31/2016 to Hot News
We have big news....

For almost 10 years now we have been pouring OhSoy! Candles at our Things That Make Scents Retail store / candle factory.  Our OhSoy! Candle brand has grown bigger and faster than I could have ever imagined.  With that kind of growth and considering future growth, tough decisions have to be made.
I will be moving Things That Make Scents into a warehouse at the end of January when our lease is up. This move will allow me to set up a much needed bigger candle factory to be able to keep up with the fast paced growth of our OhSoy! Candle brand.

So what that means is that the retail store will be closing at the end of January as well. The warehouse will not be open to the public for shopping but you can still shop online and we will have pick up days so orders can be picked up at the warehouse.  You can check out our store finder at the OhSoy! Website to find all the stores that carry our OhSoy! candles.  This list continues to grow and grow including a location in Manasquan that will carry them once we move.

OhSoy! Soy Candles Kickstarter Campaign Press Release

Posted by Administrator on 6/16/2015 to Hot News
OhSoy! Soy Candles Kickstarter Campaign Press Release
MANASQUAN, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, June 15, 2015 / -- “To Infinity and Beyond,” is Janine Predmore’s favorite quotation from Toy Story, and her motto for “Things that Make Scents.” She is the CEO, CFO, COO and any other initial type titles for her small company. She and one employee currently hand pour nearly one hundred soy candles daily.

Why soy? Because in spite soy being finicky for a candle maker to handle, it is clean burning and comes from a renewable resource. It burns cleaner than paraffin and similar types of candles, which means that you can enjoy a romantic candle light dinner without breathing pollutants or smudging your ceiling. Soy wax is biodegradable, and there are no known toxins in the raw wax. It has a lower melt point than other waxes (hence the part about being finicky to work with), and it is non-carcinogenic. Since it is made from soy, a bean plant that can be grown in one season and that actually enriches the soil it is planted on by adding nitrogen, soy candles are good news for just about everyone.

We are happy to be a part of Paint the Town Pink once again.... Not only have we Pinked up our windows to show our support but we set up a Pink promotion for the entire month of May.  All things Pink are 20% off including candles all month long. 

We also have a little Pink piggy bank up at the register counter if you would like to make a small donation to the Pink Fund.  The Pink Fund was set up to provide free mammograms for uninsured and underinsured women in our community.

No coupon is needed for our Pink promotion at the store or online.  When shopping online your Pink items will show your discount once added to the shopping cart.  To make it easier we have set up a special Pink category.

Trim those wicks!

Posted by Administrator on 3/17/2015 to Hot News

It is very important to keep your candle wicks trimmed. Untrimmed wicks will cause larger flames and that will create soot. You're burning soy candles to avoid soot, so don't go causing it yourself by not keeping those wicks trimmed!!

How short should my wick be? ....

New Things That Make Scents Website

Posted by on 2/26/2015 to Hot News
We are just loving the look of our new Things That Make Scents website! We made the decision to change our shopping cart and in doing so that required us to do a complete redesign of the site. Not something that I exactly planned on doing but the end result is awesome. The new website is very user friendly and easy to use.

We were not able to pull over any customer accounts from the old site so you will need to re-register when you shop on the new site. Sorry about that but it was out of my control. We would love your feedback, so please check it out when you get a chance and let us know what you think.

 If you have any questions about this store or the products found within, please don't hesitate to contact us any time. Our website has been carefully designed to provide you with an amazingly flexible online shopping experience, and its ease of navigation is something we think you'll appreciate.
