We’ve been stalkers fans of pSoychedelic Candles for a little while now, we love all the scents, the funkiness and all the purple! So we’re super happy now to be interviewing the ever so cool Erica for the latest edition in our Behind The Wick series.
Tell us a little about yourself – what originally drew you to making candles and launching your own business?
My name is Erica and I currently live in Oregon, in the United States. I got the idea to make candles when I was 22 years old, in 2010. I had just finished my second summer-season job, and I had no idea what I really wanted to do next. One day, while watching some of my favorite YouTuber’s videos (anyone know and love the Shaytards?), Shay received a package from a viewer containing scented candles. The way he positively responded to them and freaked out over the scents sparked an idea in my head- why not make scented candles?
I immediately started researching candle making, taking notes, and making plans. It took a while to finally get everything started, but after I purchased my first shipment of supplies, I was able to turn theory into reality.
I had MUCH trial and error to begin with, and it’s funny to look back on my humble beginnings. It has just recently been two years since launching pSOYchedelic Candles in 2013. Even though I am still learning new things all the time, I am so proud of the progress I’ve made! I am really excited to see what the future holds! Read More
