Welcome to Angela!

I'd like to welcome Angela to my team!  She is located in Saskatoon as well, and is ready to start her Gold Canyon Candles career!  She is already a lover of our pod warmers!

Tip: Room Sprays

"I used to run from room to room with my aerosol can during Parties. Instead, try this: When you hear the A/C unit turn on, spray just a little towards the intake (filter) and the whole home will smell incredible. This is a time-saver and a money-saver. Just a tiny bit goes such a long way. You can then reiterate to customers that the value is awesome and the scent lingers so long! I just love Room Sprays!"

Dear Maven - Bath Soak and Body Oil?

Dear Maven,

I have many customers who love the EMERGE™ Renew Your Soul™ Bath Soak and use it as a basic body oil. Is it safe to use it this way or should it only be used as a specified?

Great question. Lucky for us, Gold Canyon has some pretty gifted people on staff (not unlike myself) who can answer just these types of questions so you can rest assured you and your customers are using our products appropriately.

For the answer to your question, I went straight to the top of our R & D food chain to our resident R & D Manager. (She wears a lab coat, so I think she’s legit). She explained that EMERGE Renew Your Soul Bath Soak can in fact be used as a basic body oil. Her only suggestion is to give the bottle a good vigorous shake before using it this way so the ingredients can be mixed together for the optimal EMERGE experience.

I wanted to share some comments from other Demonstrators about just how much they or their customers are enjoying not only the Bath Soak, but other EMERGE products as well. You may gain a new appreciation for a product you haven’t tried yourself yet or a remedy you can share with your customers, family and friends. At the very least, reading about the renewing properties of EMERGE will likely make you want to take a little time to unwind with your favorite EMERGE products – even if you’ve already done that a couple of times today like me.

“The Start Fresh™ Hand Soap is the best, along with the Grains of Truth™ Hand Scrub and Raise Your Hand Silk™.”
- Deb Mill, Sioux Falls, SD

“Customers say the EMERGE Renew Your Soul Bath Soak is absolutely wonderful and relaxing.”
- Lou Dihuzic, Grand Junction, CO

“The Raise Your Hand Silk is great. Customers love how non-greasy it is and how it makes their hands soft.”
 - Dorothy Kelly, San Diego, CA

“Since I work with second graders, I am constantly washing my hands. They would crack and bleed on my knuckles in the winter. The Raise Your Hand Silk and Grains of Truth™ Hand Scrub have cured that problem.”
- Jane Stratton, Hillsboro, OH

“I love the EMERGE Raise Your Hand Silk. I am a stocker for a grocery store and my hands break out from cardboard and this has healed my hands.”
- Barb Kipp, Grand Junction, CO

Did you know... Diffusers

Gold Canyon Diffusers Have Patent-Pending Sticks

Did you know that our Diffusers have a patent-pending working system that allows our Diffusers to work better than any other offered? The patent-pending sticks allow for better fragrance oil absorption, which creates a stronger and better fragrance throw.

OTTAWA — Stay-at-home moms are more and more turning into work-at-home moms — using their education and pre-motherhood job experience to launch magazines, develop new products and otherwise remove the stigma of being absent from the 9-5 world by writing their own paycheques.
A survey done by Leger Marketing for eBay Canada ahead of Mother's Day found that 33 per cent of Canadians know a mother who has either started her own business or would like to — though only 14 per cent have done so.

"Deciding whether to put your career on hold after having children is probably one of the most difficult decisions a mother has to make," said Tiffany Lemay of Victoria, who started a home-based business selling items on eBay.

British Columbia-based Women's Enterprise Centre notes that one-third of self-employed Canadians are women, and half of them work from home.

But while home sales are certainly an attractive option for "mompreneurs," as they're called, that's certainly not the beginning and end of their business model.

"I find in my conversations that the general population and policy-makers think women only run micro-businesses and home-based ventures that don't have a major impact," Tracy Scarlett, CEO of Alberta Women Entrepreneurs, writes in a note to members on the group's website.

The Internet has played an important role in opening up the workplace to stay-at-home moms. MOMpreneur magazine was launched online in 2006 by a group of Calgary women who had started meeting to share information and network; the website savvymom.ca was launched in 2004 by two former university roommates who wanted to start a publication that dealt with "the ever-present challenges of modern-day motherhood."

Many mompreneur businesses stem from women's frustration at not being able to find existing suppliers of products they want: for example, Robeez baby shoe company, was established in 1994 by a new mom, recently laid off, who couldn't find shoes for her baby and started making her own. According to the company's website, Robeez now does $15 million in annual sales.

There is a wealth of resources online for work-at-home moms, including opportunities to network with other women doing the same thing, links to grants, information about writing business proposals — even advice about maintaining that all-important work-life balance, a problem many women thought they had solved by staying at home.

Dear Maven - New Scents?

Dear Maven,

The Diffusers are such a wonderful product and the perfect gift for teachers, but as a Demonstrator I am always getting requests for scents that are not available in the Diffusers. When will Gold Canyon be coming out with more scents?

Ah, the one question I get over and over . . . “Why can’t I have [insert favorite scent here] in [insert product line here]?

Let’s address this now before it’s asked again. Oh wait, too late. I think that’s the ding of my inbox now as I type this.

Well, dear Demonstrators, I admire you for your persistence in trying to please your customers. After all, where would we be without persistent Demonstrators? However, I must explain the reasoning behind this mystery.

The reality is, it’s really not much of a mystery. Gold Canyon is known as “The World’s Finest” and this I KNOW you know. Well, because of this fact, we can’t just offer every fragrance in every product line and still meet our high standard of quality.

One thing you may not know is our R & D (Research and Development) department Coworkers are super perfectionists. When we hire for R & D, we actually look for this on their resumes! These highly trained scientists worthy of Gold Canyon aren’t exactly falling from the sky either. With the experts we do hire and their mission of providing “The World’s Finest”, they don’t exactly have extra time on their hands. Currently, only the best-performing fragrances are offered in Diffusers. But don’t worry—R & D is always developing and testing more fragrances that may be offered in the future!

As professor at GCU, I use Diffusers to keep my classroom from smelling stale. We have developed the Give Teacher an “A” Gift Giving set that is the perfect back-to-school gift for teacher of all class ages. It is flameless, comes with a cute ruler ribbon exclusive to the set and a full set of decals to ensure your Diffuser is always in season. And, since the fragrance lasts 3-5 months, you don’t have to worry about ordering a refill until winter break!

Bottom line: I know how you and your customers all love Gold Canyon fragrances so much and I really can’t blame you for that. So, I’m sure this won’t be the last time you or I hear this question, but maybe now you can explain things a little better. Perfection takes hard work people and no one would want their Sugar Cookie fragrance to be under par now would they? I didn’t think so!

Dear Maven - Why are the Pillars leaving?

Dear Maven,

I have been a long-time fan of the Pillar Series and have customers who are loyal followers as well. Can you share with me why the Pillar Series is going away? Are there issues with the candles? Will you be bringing them back?

With all your questions, I think it’s safe to assume you feel pretty passionately about these pillar candles! I have to admit that like you, I went through my own brief period of shock and denial when I heard they would not be returning.

Having said that, I have confirmed with reliable sources that it is indeed true that the plan for 2010 is to discontinue the Pillar Series.

Our amazingly knowledgeable Research & Development squad assures me there are absolutely no performance or quality issues with this product line that brought this decision about. The decision was made based solely on sales data and market trends. As they say, business is business!

The good news is that anything is possible, and what I mean is there is always a chance the Pillar Series could come back. Gold Canyon always responds to the needs of our customers, so if the company was to receive an influx of responses asking to bring pillars back, we would reevaluate this decision and consider their return to the product line.
Fellow Fan of Pillars,

Scents and Memories

Recently a discussion came up on a message board with candle sellers from all companies talking about how scents affect memories.  The scent you associate with a parent, with an event, etc.  These are unique to everyone. 

One that comes to mind for me is this: Lilac's remind me of being a kid cuz we had huge lilac bushes in our front yard. It was part of spring to go out there and cut some down and bring them in the house. But we had to be careful of bees. Those things were probably 8 feet tall (granted, I was only 4 feet tall) 

What scents have memories associated with them for you?

Dear Maven - Pineapple?

Dear Maven,

For years I have loved the fragrance in Pineapple & Cilantro pillars. Now I see the Pineapple & Cilantro description in the summer catalog’s fragrance guide says “refer to Pineapple Coast”. Is it true that Pineapple Coast and Pineapple & Cilantro are really one in the same? I think they smell so different!


Perplexed over Pineapple

Dear Perplexed,

Believe it! The scandalous truth is that these two fragrances really are one in the same. But don’t feel too betrayed. There are a couple of perfectly reasonable explanations for why this two-timing fragrance has you faked out.

First, if you’re detecting a slight difference between the two fragrances, it may not be your imagination. Any difference between the way the two fragrances smell could be attributed to the difference in wax bases. The vegetable wax blend in the pillars has a slightly different natural odor than that of the paraffin wax blend in the Heritage jars.

Also, you may have heard it said that perception is everything. That couldn’t be truer in the world of fragrance. Fragrance is very experiential. For example, a name like Pineapple Coast with a beach-themed label in a Heritage jar may conjure up different visual images and invoke a different feeling than a Tuscan-inspired pillar with a name like Pineapple & Cilantro.

Your Pineapple Private Eye,
