Spring 2011 Fragrance Line, Part 3

Continuing on, I bring you part 3 of the Spring fragrance line. People often ask me what my favorite scent is. That question for me, doesn't have an across-the-board answer. I change favorites often. Sometimes I like fresh, clean scents. Other times I want a nice fruity combination. What I find myself going back to most often, however, are the bakery scents. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that maybe it's due to my MASSIVE sweet tooth, but they really are my favorites. If I had to choose just one scent family, I'm pretty sure the bakery scents would be it. (Guess that's good, considering I'll be starting Pastry Arts school next month!) Anyway, enough about me. On to the good stuff...
SJ Candle Shoppe Bake Shoppe

Apple Cinnamon

Banana Nut Bread

Blueberry Cobbler

Buttercream Supreme

Creamy Vanilla

Red Hot Cinnamon

I'm going to be honest here: I foresee this line being much larger. I didn't want to overwhelm myself out of the gate and try to offer too much. That's a lot of inventory, and supply costs add up quickly when you're starting up. On the other hand, there's so much to offer, and everything smells so good! I have a feeling I'll be adding on sooner than I had first thought!

What are your favorite bakery scents? Is there anything missing from this line that is a must-have in your kitchen? Feel free to leave a comment. I love feedback! (Oh yeah, and follow me on Twitter @TXshoppegirl.)

Spring 2011 Fragrance Line, Part 1

To help me get back on track with blogging and setting up the business, I thought I would post here about my new fragrance line-up. I've retired some fragrances from the past, and brought in some new ones I hope you'll love. I also decided to break the scents into categories or "fragrance lines" to more easily target what you want. So without further ado, I present the brand new
SJ Candle Shoppe Aromatherapy Line


Breathe Easy

Depression Relief


Headache Relief

Muscle Relaxer

Sinus Relief

Snore Therapy



Don't forget to follow me on Twitter (@TXshoppegirl) for up-to-the-minute updates, blog posts, and whatever else is on my mind!


Please know, I am not a certified Aromatherapist, nor any kind of doctor. I have, however, done research on what types of herbs, plants, and natural extracts can help aide in the relief of certain symptoms. It is based on this research that I offer this line of candles and bath products.

Back in Business

I'm super excited to share this post today. I've had something in the works now for quite a while, and I've finally gotten the motivation to do it.
Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! I am super excited to be starting up again. I've been absent from it for about a year and a half, while I went through my separation and divorce. I'm starting over again, and that means starting fresh with a lot of things. I've missed my little business so much over the last several months. I made a lot of friends, and had so many loyal customers from the different venues where we would show. I can't guarantee that I will be at every single event, but I'll make it to as many as I can. It'll be just me for now, but I'm coming back in a big way! I have to repurchase the domain name and set up shop online. Besides the independent site, I'll also start posting on Etsy again. For now, the easiest way to reach me is to email me at or find me on Twitter (@TXshoppegirl) if you want some info, to place an order, or just wish me luck! *SJ*
