How things started

My name is Candace Hlinka and I’m the creator of Heavenly Salts. I’ve always wanted to do something great with my life! I’ve loved art since I was very little but it took me a long time to figure out what that meant. I loved houses and thought I wanted to flip them but there were so many aspects of it that I didn’t like and it eventually fizzled out. Then I had a friend that was starting a wellness center and I thought that was it, that's what I want to do. Somehow it happened and Heavenly Salts was born in May 2018, it was a salt cave and we offered halotherapy and other spa-type services. I never saw myself in this kind of environment, I was not a spa-type person, but I was here and I was going to make it work. During that time I discovered soap making, most of the time it was the only bright light in what I discovered was another business venture that I was very unhappy in. I couldn’t understand how I kept getting it wrong and I had to take a hard look at how I ended up where I was. I just wanted to be home with my family, in my garden, making soap and building things but instead, I was gone all day, far from home trapped in my little salt cave business. There were things I loved about having that business but also a lot of mistakes were made. Mostly I was missing all the creativity and freedom that I longed for that I thought this business would provide but didn't. And then COVID! This was a do-over, I couldn’t believe it! I was out, due to no fault of my own. I learned a lot of lessons in those two years and I’m not making those mistake again. How do I know? Because this time I'm home and I’m happy every single day, I grow things and I make things, this is what I love, it's that simple. It's not the plan I started out on when I dreamed of all this greatness years ago but who knows, it's not over yet!
