Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal care but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Crystal Jean, Owner of Crystal Scents, located in Miami Gardens, FL, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

My business specializes in all-natural handmade products, such as Candles, Essential Oils, Soaps, Wax Melts, and more. My customers are people all over the world. I promote at pop-up shops and on social media.

Tell us about yourself

My name is Crystal, and since I can remember, I have loved oils and candles. I always wanted to combine the two and have also had them used as a body oil. I’ve done over six months of research to master it. Now the rest is history.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment is knowing that I’ve done it! I make everything using natural products, and nothing I use will harm the skin or body.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

One of the hardest things that I encounter is when I order products. The shipments are delayed.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Believe in yourself.
  2. Never give up.
  3. Work 24/7… Put yourself in them.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

Always push yourself even when you want to give up.

Where can people find you and your business?
