Miss Betty's Oringinal Bad-Ass Soy Candles
Ms. Betty’s Original Bad-Ass Soy Candles is a business started by Scott and Margi Higdon in the fall of 2013. The inspiration for this entire brand is their friend Betty. She always says it like it is and if you get your feelings hurt, you just don’t get her.
It all started when they wanted to give Betty a unique gift for her birthday. Betty loves candles and since she was the original inspiration, they wanted to give her a candle that would capture her energy and especially her attitude. They brainstormed for a while trying to get just the right name. When they did, they knew it and “Ms. Betty’s Original Bad-Ass Bitch” soy candle was created. Instead of a listing the scent on the label, they used the phrase, “Any scent I F’N want” because that is exactly the type of response Betty would give you, if asked. They gave the first candle to her and she absolutely loved it.
Scott and Margi have been able to involve their family and friends along the way and they are all enjoying watching the business grow. If they aren’t preparing candles, then they are ordering more supplies or tracking shipments and taking care of their customers.
Their goal is to create the best customer service experience and premium soy candles you can buy, from their use of all natural soy and reusable rock glasses (psst, they’re whiskey glasses), to their recycled paper dust caps. They want that special person to know that when they receive one of these candles, they are bad-ass.
