Innovation and creativity are two important qualities needed by those who want to start and grow a business. Competition is rampant in the digital age. If you want to attract more customers, you have to set yourself apart from your competitors by providing unique and quality products.
However, you don’t have to go to great lengths just to think of ways to execute novel ideas. Here are three businesses that you can start from home. All you need are common materials, tools, and your trusty negosyo refrigerator from Condura Philippines.
Candles are popularly used as home decorations. But aside from using it as a centerpiece, many people use various scented candles today to destress. Take this chance to start your small business. You can make customized scented candles and sell them online.
Make a survey or ask potential clients what designs they’d like. Through this you’ll be able to gather information on the type of candles that would suit their preference. You can also play with colors and other add-ons.
The supplies you’ll need are:
- Candle wax
- Packs of candle wicks
- Scented oils (essential oils can also be used)
- A spatula
- Any heat-proof container
- A pot
- A stove or boiler
- Different types of jars for molding
Before you start making candles, make sure that you have a clean and flat surface to work on. Next, protect the surface by putting newspapers or paper towels on top. Take out all items that may be damaged by heat or wax.
Measure how much wax it would take to fill your container, jars, or final mold. Double the amount. This is how much wax you’d have to melt.
Place the wax inside a pot and put the pot on a stove. Wait for 10-15 minutes for the wax to melt. Remember to stir frequently.
Once melted, add your fragrance or essential oils. Add only a little and stir for a few seconds. Only add more when you think that the fragrance isn’t enough.
You can also add a few drops of food coloring to the melted wax, but this is optional.
Next, cut the wick and place it along the center of the container. Dip the wick in the melted wax and stick the wick to the bottom of the container. Pour the melted wax onto your container, jar, or any item you’ll use as a mold. The melted wax will take the shape of the container.
Allow the wax to cool, and then place the container inside the refrigerator’s freezer for 1 hour. However, make sure that there is no frost build-up before placing your candles inside the freezer. Frost build-up means that the unit will work harder to maintain its temperature.If you’re looking for the best fridge choice for your candles, then we recommend the Condura No-Frost Refrigerator. Our Condura Negosyo No Frost Inverter Pro prevents mixing of odors of the items inside and keeps humidity at an optimum level. This makes this refrigerator perfect for your candle business.
Once ready, you may leave the hardened wax in the container if it’s made of glass. What you’ll have is a jar or glass candle. Otherwise, you may gently take the candle out of the mold.

Dried Flower Business
Flowers inside your refrigerator freezer? Yes! You can also preserve dried flowers and sell them as potpourri or home decoration. To start this unique business, you may pick flowers from your own garden or find a local supplier. Once you have them, take out the petals and store them in a container. Place the container inside the refrigerator until you’re ready to turn them into potpourri or decoration. Want to get the best fridge for your budding business? Check out Condura Negosyo Chiller Pro! This chiller is known for its Negosyo Organizer, which brings you multiple racks for storage.
When you’re ready to create your products, the first step is to take them out the fridge and dry the flowers. The best method is to air-dry the whole flower stem. This is a good method to preserve flowers such as roses and lavender. Otherwise, you can also dry them by using the microwave. The microwave is great to preserve the color, form, and structure of flowers This technique is good for colorful ones like daisies, chrysanthemums, and tulips. Set the microwave level to low and dry the flowers from 2-4 minutes.
Afterward, place the dried flowers in a bowl for potpourri. If being used for decoration, then you may also frame the petals. You can also lacquer the dried flowers so they can be displayed.
Again, don’t forget to take great photos so you can attract more clients!
Many people have turned to gardening due to the many social restrictions in place. You can sell plants and seeds to all the plantitos and plantitas out there. Some variants even sell for a good price.
However, bear in mind that seed saving is an essential aspect of selling plants. Gather the seeds and choose the best ones. Aside from that, you must also maintain their pristine condition by storing them in a refrigerator until they’re ready to be planted. This way, you’ll never run out of plants to sell as you’ll always be gathering, storing, and planting the seeds that you harvest from them. You may need to seperate your seeds from the food items inside the fridge. To do this, a refrigerator with a double-door feature, such as Negosyo Pro Two-Door Inverter refrigerator, would definitely help you save cost.
Though you may also sell the seeds, it’s better to allow them to grow and sell the seedlings, instead. Seedlings usually fetch a higher price in the market. Full-grown plants are even more valuable.
Cultivate your green thumb with the help of your negosyo refrigerator.
