Work from Home:  Home based Candle Business

Candles are a wonderful way to turn a fun craft into a lucrative business!  

Here are some statistics from The National Candle Association:

  • U.S. retail sales of candles are estimated at approximately $2 billion annually, excluding sales of candle accessories.

  • Candles are used in 7 out of 10 U.S. households.

  • Candles can range in retail price from approximately 50 for a votive candle to around $75 for a large column candle, although a specialty candle could be as much as $200.

  • Candle manufacturers' surveys show that 96% of all candles purchased are bought by women.

  • Two-thirds of candle purchasers say they use candles once a week or more often. Women are more frequent users than men, and younger people tend to use candles more often than older adults.

  • Candle purchasers view candles as an appropriate gift for the holidays (76%), as a house warming gift (74%), a hostess/dinner party gift (66%), a thank you (61%) and as adult birthday gifts (58%).

  • Tea lights are the most frequently purchased type of candle, followed by votives and container candles.
