AbundaScents is a family owned and operated business located in Berks County, Pennsylvania. We are a home based candle and bath business dedicated to making quality products that are affordable AND of high quality.
Jenn has always enjoyed being creative. Making things that are useful, decorative and enjoyed by others is something she takes great pride in. She started out over 13 years ago making a wide variety of country and woodcrafts. Anything from signs to painted jars to country dolls.
Then one day she came across a candle making kit and decided to purchase it. There was never a thought of making candles and selling them, she only wanted to make them for her own personal use. But after making just a few candles she was hooked!
We slowly purchased more supplies and tested, tested and tested some more (for well over 8 months). Once we had perfected a formula we were proud of, we began selling them at craft shows and a local farmers market in 1999. Since then our business has been embraced by MANY wonderful customers and has boomed.
In 2002 AbundaScents branched out into old fashioned homemade soap and made from scratch bath & body products to enhance our product selection. We launched our *webstore* as just another way for us to share our products with existing and new customers.
Looking for a better way to expand out business, we sought out a retail location to set up shop. You can imagine how happy we are to offer our wares at a local Farmers Market, Zerns, on the weekends. Come on out and sniff all the wonderful scents!
2008 found us in desperate need for more room in our workshop to accommodate our ever growing product line. So we sold our home and moved to a larger one with a separate workshop dedicated just to our business.
We offer a wide variety of goodies to help you create a soothing and relaxing atmosphere all around you. With over 200 candle scents, 60+ homemade soap varieties and many bath, body and home fragrance items to choose from there is sure to be something for everyone. We strive to provide our customers with the most fragrant products while maintaining a high customer satisfaction.
While Jenn makes all the products, proper acknowledgment must go to her helpers! Her wonderful husband Jim is the best sales person and support person. He does it all, from building displays for our products to handing out business cards and brochures to starting dinner so Jenn can finish up orders. Our wonderful kids, Jimmy, Erin & Emma, who will be the next generation of AbundaScents candle makers. Jimmy is learning the business and is quite the salesman like his father! Erin helps Mom in the shop and is learning the art of making GREAT SMELLING candles and such. Emma is Mommy's lil helper. She goes on all our supplier runs and shopping adventures and is always willing to give us her opinion on a new fragrance. Thank you for being such good helpers!
