Meet Alexis Lewis of The Candle Goat

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alexis Lewis.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I began making candles about four years ago and it became a hobby I enjoyed. I started with a kit from the hobby lobby but I felt very limited with the materials they offered.

From there, I began making aromatherapy candles to help me relax. After the first two years, I realized candle-making is something that I loved. In the third year, I spent time learning and testing various wicks, wax, fragrances, and jars.

When 2022 started, I make it a goal of mine to launch my candle business, and get these amazing candles out to the world.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
This journey has not been the easiest but has been well worth it.

During my numerous experiments, I have encountered, fragrances not being strong enough. candles not burning. wicks not getting hot enough, candle wax cracking, and many more.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about The Candle Goat LLC?
