Welcome to Covington Creek Candle Company! I'm so glad you stopped in for a visit. I'm committed to creating a stable lifestyle by self sufficiency. Prices are going to keep going up. Food recalls are increasing. I don't know about you but I like to know how my food was grown and that I'm the one that canned it. I want to help everyone become more self sufficient whether you live in a apartment, the burbs, a acre or two or more. Of course we can't do everything but I think you will be amazed at how much control you can have.

My home business now includes quilted items and rustic home crafts in addition to creating the best and healthiest cold process soap, 100% pure soy candles, bees wax candles and natural/organic salves and lip balm as possible. Many say I have the best Fort Wayne handcrafted soap, salves and candles. I still haven't found the right place to open a brick and mortar store so www.covingtoncreekcandles.com will have the cold process soap rotating. But email me if there is a special item you are looking for and I will do my best to create it. I am all about customer satisfaction. I am continuing to look for a few acres to grow my own ingredients and move the shop part out of my home and into a separate building.

I am trying to help make this a greener and healthier place to live. We can do this thru more self sufficiency and preparedness. I would love for you to come along on my journey because that is what life is - a journey. If there is a subject you would like more information on let me know at covingtoncreekcandles@comcast.net

Winter Weather Gift Set for the Skin!

Living in Northern Indiana we do not get the worst of weather but it still gets plenty cold and that can be drying to the skin. Covington Creek Candle Company, LLC uses  this travel set combination and loves it. The Goat Milk, Honey and Oatmeal soap is gently on my skin and just enough oatmeal to help defoliate. The lip balm is great for softening the lips. I use the Eucalyptus lip balm to help keep the stuffy nose away. The warmth of the lips helps the oils release their magic. The salve is great to soften the hands, elbows and feet. Did you know mositurized skin also helps you stay warmer?

This set includes one 1 ounce Goat Milk, Honey and Oatmeal cold process soap, one tube of your choice in my lip balms and one Winter Weather Salve 1.5 ounce tin. This set is great for winter weather (or really any time of the year), camping, hunting or fishing trips. Perfect as a stocking stuffer, addition to a gift basket, secret Santa, college students, travel or someone that loves to trial products. A great addition for your guests during this holiday season or as a hostess gift.

This gift set consists of:

One travel/guest Soap - Goat Milk, Honey and Oatmeal Cold Process. This is a great soap to pamper your skin anytime of the year but especially at during the cold winter months. Ingredients: Organic Olive Oil,Organic Palm Oil, Organic Coconut oil,, Organic Steel Cut Ground Oatmeal - freshly ground by little ol' me.
Local Goat Milk from happy goats raised grass feed and no hormones, Locally Harvested Honey, Distilled Water, Sodium Hydroxide is an all-natural product made from wood ash and contains no man made chemicals. Combined with salt it will create a natural chemical reaction with the oils to form a hard surface hence you get soap. With time the distilled water will evaporate (or curing as it is called in the soap makers world) and the lye and oils will evolve into a wonderful, dense and gentle bar of soap. This is why it takes at least 4 weeks for full size bars and 2 weeks for the travel/guest size rounds of cold process soap to cure. Definitely worth the wait.

Lip Balm Ingredients:
Locally Harvested Bees Wax, Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil, Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Flax seed oil, Organic Jojoba, Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil. Organic Shea Butter, Organic Tea tree, Organic Sunflower oil NOTE: The green cap is to remind you to go green every time you use the lip balm :o)

Winter Weather Salve (1.5 ounces) comes in a convenient screw top tin - The lanolin and bees wax can help protect skin from windy and cold days and hold in the moisture. The Shea and Cocoa Butters, olive, avocado, calendula, hemp, pumpkin seed and tea tree oils, honey - well you just have to read up on those to truly appreciate them because the limited space I have will not do them justice.

Shop Local!

Here at Covington Creek Candle Company, LLC we are all about shopping local. Until the end of the year we are going to profile local events and small business shopping.

This week it is the Vintage Antique Marketplace located in Columbia City, Indiana. This business has such a beautiful setting. It is located in a Victorian style brick church. Much of the interior is intact and stunning.  The sun streaming thru the glass stained windows on some of the unique antiques is breath taking. The main sanctuary floor is the antique section while the lower level (aka basement) is filled with crafts, repurposed antiques, a Gathering Room used for special and catered events. This lower level is where you will find our candles greeting you after you descend the stairs. On the lower level you will also find fine chocolates, meats and cheeses. It would be so easy to make a gift basket from the treasures located here.  The Holiday Open House is this weekend Saturday 10 am to 5 pm and Sunday 12 pm to 4 pm. Hope you can stop by!

105 Days Until Halloween!!!!

Ok maybe I am getting a little ahead of myself but I like to have things going before the holiday gets here. Will I be making Halloween decorations this weekend? No, but I am starting to get ideas on what I want to do. This neat spider web idea is number six. The link goes to a tutorial page that does have a link to a YouTube video and it does take a minute to get to the how to do this but it is so worth it.

We are back! Just in time for Candle Season!

College will be done the end of August and I will be back in full force working on the greatest smelling candles and making skin loving cold process soap. It does my heart good to start doing something I love so much. Look for more new creations to come your way.

One scent I love during this time of the year is Seaside. I live in a state that is pretty much land locked. Seaside satisfies my senses for those warm relaxing days of walking along the beach. This scent is available in all of my style jars, votive, melts and tealights.
