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

Recycle those packing peanuts!

Like most people I end up with an abundance of packing peanuts, air pockets or packing foam - esp this time of year. Rather than throwing it in the trash (our recycling will not take it), look for a shipping place like FedEx, UPS or Pak Mail or freecycle to donate it to. So far I have had success with donating to these great places. Keeps it out of the landfill and reuses it plus maybe, just maybe if enough people do this it will help keep their costs down and they will pass that on to us. Freecycle is a great place to list any of your unwanted items. If you are not sure about a stranger coming to your home agree to meet in a parking lot.
