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

Sandwich Bags

Every think about all of those sandwich bags that we use daily?  There must be thousands if not billions of them in the landfills.  One thing I have discovered (or really rediscoved) is the wax paper bags.  I remember as a kid my Mother packing my school lunch in them.  I would bring them back home and she would take a dishcloth and wipe them out and hang them to dry to be reused later.  The wax bags are the perfect size to slide that all natural peanut butter and jelly sandwich into.  Like pickles on it?  I would recommend putting them in a small dish with a lid (plus you can carry extra to snack on - a low calorie treat) on it as the wax bags do not seal.  These wax bags ae non-toxic when burned, are landfill safe and do not contaminate ground water.  They will eventually decompose where the plastic ones will be here when no one else is.
