Today we’d like to introduce you to Taylor King.
Hi Taylor, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
In mid-March 2020, I was furloughed from my job at Disneyland. With each day and week that passed, the world got more and more scary and unpredictable due to COVID-19, so I wanted to find a way to bring some comfort and joy to peoples’ homes. Candles have always been a source of comfort in my home, so I decided I should teach myself how to make candles and wax melts and open up shop for others to enjoy! Once late July came around, I was ready for business and I opened my small shop Dipity Candle Co. on Etsy! Since then, I’ve sold and shipped out my candles and wax melts to homes all across the US!
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Through trials and errors while self-teaching myself how to make candles and wax melts, I learned the science behind what it takes to make a great product! Some struggles I faced were finding the perfect wax to fragrance ratios, knowing which wicks worked best for the wax type and jar sizes, and finding the perfect balance of different scents in my fragrance oil blends.
We’ve been impressed with Dipity Candle Co., but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Dipity Candle Co. is a female-owned small shop that sells organic soy candles and wax melts. Since I’m a one-woman company, I hand pour each of my products myself, made to order! K-POP is a huge inspiration of mine, so each of my products’ names are based on K-POP songs! My products are known for their fun names, beautiful designs, and bold fragrances, each of which are clean burning and phthalate-free! If you’re looking for a candle or wax melt that smells divine and lasts a long time, you’re sure to find a product that fits your vibe!
What do you like best about our city? What do you like least?
The LA area is the perfect place to grow your dreams. The opportunities are endless if you persist towards your goals, and the people make this city light up. The diversity is beautiful and everyone has their own story! What I dislike is the traffic, but c’est la vie.
