HANDMADE by Cathy Richardson



Hello, and welcome to www.freewebs.com/handmade-cr !!

Let me tell you a bit about HANDMADE by Cathy Richardson:

Well, first of all, I'm Cathy Richardson, as you probably guessed from the name of the business :-) I make and sell soy wax candles, and have been doing so in the past on Ebay, but have decided to cut out the middle man, so to speak. I have been doing this for around a year and a half now and thought it was high time I got my own website! So here it is. You can find other pages, such as a forum, or photos of my products, if you look on the navigation bar at the top.

So, what is soy wax? Why is it so good? Why should you buy it? Well all the answers shall be revealed.....

Soy wax is a eco-friendly sourced vegetable based wax. It is 100% sustainable and helps to support the farmers who produce it in the first place. When lit, the candle has a cleaner burn, which means less soot emissions. So you can rest in the knowledge you've made the right choice for the environment! This is also good for people with breathing problems such as asthma.

Soy wax retains colour for much longer than other types of candle, so it will not fade. This is good if you wish to buy candles as presents in advance. When the special occasion comes around the candle will be the same as the day you bought it.

The scented candles have an excellent scent throw, even if you choose to keep the candle unlit as a decoration. I have many fragrances to use in my candle making, but always welcome requests or suggestions, either on the forum or by E-mail - handmade-cr@hotmail.com . 

Unlike other types of wax, soy wax cleans up with just soap and water! So no more ruined carpets! Also if you buy a container candle from me, when the candle runs out you can wash the container and re-use it - how environmentally friendly are we! When you buy HANDMADE you know each candle is different from every other one.

I also offer the option of candles made to your specifications, so if you require a candle which I don't currently sell, you can use the same order form and request specifically what you want, and I will do all I can to fulfil your waxy needs!

I would just like to say thank you for visiting www.freewebs.com/handmade-cr and supporting small businesses! Please feel free to look around, leave comments, chat on the forum, or place an order...... and don't forget to tell your friends!


Warning: Never leave burning candles unattended. Always place candles on a suitable plate or container before lighting. Keep children, pets and other flammable materials away from lit candles. Candle wicks should be trimmed to 5mm before lighting.


At present the payment options are by cheque (make out to Cathy Richardson) or by PayPal.

If paying by PayPal, my email address is handmade-cr@hotmail.com but I will send you an invoice so do not pay anything until you receive this as it will calculate the final cost (including P&P).
