Rising Stars: Meet Kyrston Jones

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kyrston Jones.

Hi Kyrston, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
K. Chante’ Aromas was established in 2018. Originally named La Chandelle by K. Chante’. I have always had a love for home fragrance products, especially candles. When I was young, my mother used to always burn candles and I loved the smell coming from them and how they made the house smell. I decided to put my love into craft and make my own candles.

We offer hand-poured soy wax candles, wax melts, room/car sprays and car and reed diffusers. All of our candles and wax melts are made with soy wax. I knew I wanted to give customers a healthier option when burning candles so I went with soy wax. Soy wax is a healthier wax option to burn and is toxic-free, it also burns slower, giving your candles a longer life span. All of our products are made in small batches and hand-poured with love. We strive to fulfill all of your home fragrance needs. I think first impressions are everything when someone walks into your home and the scent or fragrance is the first thing most people will notice and remember.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
The biggest struggle was testing my products, especially candles. I wanted to ensure that my candles were safe and also smelled good. I also struggled with time management in the beginning but learned to schedule my days ahead of time and set goals. I love what I do and learned that candle-making is my outlet and happy place. It helps to calm me when I am stressed. I just play a little music and start making candles.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am a healthcare employee by day and candle maker at night (LOL). I work for a local hospital in the Baltimore area. I really enjoy working in healthcare. I love helping people. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Health Information Management and a Master’s Degree in Health Science Administration.

I am always there to lend a helping hand to those I love. I am a very family-oriented person. I am known as the quiet one. I am actually very camera shy and have anxiety about public speaking (I need to work on overcoming this).

Before we let you go, we’ve got to ask if you have any advice for those who are just starting out?
I would advise anyone starting out to do your research! This is the most important thing. Also, know who your target audience is so you can target those people when marketing your product. Get to know other makers, if you can have business meetings with them to discuss each other’s goals and push each other to reach them.
